MAUS (MICE Analysis User Software) is the MICE project's tracking, detector reconstruction and accelerator physics analysis framework. MAUS is designed to fulfil a number of functions for physicists interested in studying MICE data:

  • Model the behaviour of particles traversing MICE
  • Model the MICE detector's electronics response to particles
  • Perform pattern recognition to reconstruct particle trajectories from electronics output
  • Provide a framework for high level accelerator physics analysis
  • Provide online diagnostics during running of MICE

In addition to MAUS's role within MICE, the code is also used for generic accelerator development, in particular for the Neutrino Factory.
