Detailed Description

View in nbviewer Open in SWAN Use RVecs to plot the transverse momentum of selected particles.

This tutorial shows how VecOps can be used to slim down the programming model typically adopted in HEP for analysis. In this case we have a dataset containing the kinematic properties of particles stored in individual arrays. We want to plot the transverse momentum of these particles if the energy is greater than 100.
