  2. ATLAS uses a right-handed coordinate system with its origin at the nominal interaction point (IP) in the centre of the detector and the z-axis coinciding with theaxis of the beam pipe. The x-axis points from the IP to the centre of the LHC ring, and the y axis points upward. Cylindrical coordinates (r, f) are used inthe transverse plane, f being the azimuthal angle around the beam pipe. The pseudorapidity is defined in terms of the polar angle q as h = -ln tan(q/2).
