Many analyses at ATLAS deal with backgrounds due to “fake leptons”. These, fundamentally, are any objects which the detector mistakenly thinks are leptons. Various methods have been used throughout Run 1 to estimate the impact of these backgrounds, and I shall present an overview of the “matrix method”, the issues that have arisen with this method, and present an alternative.
