Great, I suppose it is better to reconstruct layer by layer in the detector. Thanks!

Or is it that the jet algorithm doesn't necessarily ask for HCAL activity in order to id low pt jets that fail to make it to the HCAL?

Thanks for this answer! Ok, but this means that the electron has to generate at least a bit of activity in the HCAL in order for the jet reconstruction algorithm to mistake it for a jet, am I right? or is there some other reason why the algorithm fails? Welcome to Physics stack ex :)

Sorry, I meant a phenomenological explanation.

Thanks for the answer. So from what you are saying, this specific selection is used because dedicated MC simulations show that it reduces background. Right? It still seems strange why they do this. I would expect some underlying physical explanation why this works!

I would bet for the first possibility: electron + DIS. The other ones would be fake electrons not coming from the signal and these are taken care of in another way.

Ok sure. For instance in this recent SUSY search arxiv.org/pdf/1602.09058v1.pdf. 6th paragraph section 4... they actually don't specify much. That is why i am asking.

This makes sense. But if this were the case shouldn't they actually use the hadronic junk activity in order to better reconstruct the parent electron? It seems that they would be throwing away useful info right?
