  • Responses to "homework questions":
    • Q1: MICE Muon Beam; simulation and tuning:
      • Please give an example of a comparison between simulation and measured data through the beamline from the target to the EMR.
      • What are the physicial quantities used in the comparison? (Phase-space plots and what else?)
      • What are the parameters that are used in fitting the optics tuning data? (For example initial particle distribution, magnet settings, absorber settings, et cetera?)
      • How are the multiple Monte Carlo and other simulations integrated together? Why are the interface locations where they are?
    • Q1 Response: C. Rogers, P. Franchini, D. Rajaram: homework-question-1.pdf
    • Q2: What is the capability of U.S. members of the MICE collaboration to take part in the 2017/02 cycle (from September 19 to October 27) if such a data-taking run occurs? What would be the optimum (approximate) distribution between shifters and hardware experts?
