  • in passenger jets at cruising altitude, with aircraft cabins typically pressurized to 8,000 feet (2440-m) above sea level, the partial pressure of oxygen is about 25% less than at sea level, which, because of the oxygen-hemoglobin dissociation curve (see figure: oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve), represents a drop in arterial oxygen saturation of only about 4.4%. this decrease may be significant for people with severe heart or lung disease (see table contraindications to flying) but is harmless to most people; however, after 3 to 9 hours at that altitude equivalent, some people report discomfort (eg, headache, malaise). merckmanuals.com

  • jets are reconstructed from topological clusters [53] of energy deposits in the calorimeters using the anti-kt algorithm [54, 55] with a radius parameter of r=0.4. only jets with pt>25 gevand |η|<2.5 are considered. in order to suppress jets arising from pile-up collisions, jets with pt<60 gevand |η|<2.4 must have a sizeable fraction of their tracks matched to the selected primary vertex [56]. jets containing b-hadrons are identified (b-tagged) via a multi-variate discriminant combining information from the impact parameters of displaced tracks with topological properties of secondary and tertiary decay vertices reconstructed within the jet [57]. the b-tagging algorithm used for this search has an average efficiency of 70% to identify b-jets with pt>20 gevand |η|<2.5 in simulated tt¯ events. nih.gov
