The ATLAS Muon Trigger Design and Performance

Experimental poster Performance Poster Session (I)

Muon triggers are essential for studying a variety of physics processes in the ATLAS experiment, including both standard model measurements and searches for new physics. The ATLAS muon trigger consists of a hardware-based system (Level-1), as well as a software-based reconstruction (High-Level Trigger). The muon triggers have been optimised during Run 2 to provide a high efficiency while keeping the trigger rate low. We will present an overview of how we trigger on muons, recent improvements, the performance of the muon trigger in Run 2 data and the improvements underway for Run 3.
