TEXT/PLAIN (113 lines)
asked by Daniele I have verified that this effect that I actually see on
the root analysis files is already present on the timestamp from whic we
started: the breco ones.
I've taken a look in /nfs/farm/babar/AWG7/ISL/tmp/TS

and i actually obtain almost the same result comparing the dstar-sb1 with
all the other 'purified (having eliminated all the duplicates among them)'
So on 47755 events dstar-sb1 I see 18021 duplicated events in the
remaining sample (~38%).
This means that it is highly probable that a 'pure' dstar candidate has
some duplicated events somewhere and also means that in this way it is
difficult to evaluate the effect of duplicates without looking at the

The mes distribution of the candidates in those file is
for the files containing duplicates:

for the new files

In all the various modes the major change is in the signal region.
