 * *_Responses to "homework questions":_* 
 ## _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?_ 

 
 ** Response: C. Rogers, P. Franchini, D. Rajaram: attachment:homework-question-1.pdf 

 ## _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?_
