Reconstruction and identification of hadronic tau-decays in ATLAS

Abstract : The identification of tau -jets from the hadronic tau -decay is crucial for the study of many physics channels like the production of Higgs bosons decaying to tau or SUSY. The tau-jet reconstruction in ATLAS is performed starting from the energy deposited in the calorimeters or also combining measurements from calorimeter and tracking with an energy-flow technique. Quantities built both from the calorimeters and from the inner detector are used to identify tau -jets against other jets. In the talk we will review the performance of tau-jet reconstruction and identification, showing that the excellent tau-efficiency versus the jet-rejection obtained in ATLAS will allow the study of channels where the background from jets is potentially very large.
