Reinterpretation with Open Data

This lesson aims to explore reinterpretation and role of Open Data in it. It introduces reinterpretation concepts and provides a hands-on exercise that reinterprets a familiar standard model analysis in terms of a new physics signal. The exercises are implemented using Analysis Description Language and CutLang, a construct designed to express the physics content of an analysis a transparant and organized manner and runtime interpret the description.


Please make sure that you have followed the Docker pre-exercises and are familiar with Docker containers.
