Calibration analysis for ATLAS Pb--Pb centrality. The centrality measure is $\sum E_\perp$ in the forward and backward directions. The reference YODA file contains the experimental centrality calibration, but extracted from the plot in the paper. Analysis can be run for all energies to provide generator calibration curves, but only holds data for 2.76 TeV/nn. Note that this has not been unfolded for detector effects.
