h1. MAUS User Documentation 

 MAUS usage is handled by several applications that enable basic usage of the framework. Each application runs several modules against a particular configuration. The particular modules that the application runs, and the configuration that is run against, can all be modified by the user. 

 h2. Offline data access 

 To get at the MICE data, look here: 

 h2. Applications 

 There are several applications in the MAUS schema 

 h2. Configuration manipulation 

 MAUS uses a set of user-modifiable files to control the application configuration. Variables such as input geometry, field arrangement and detector parameters can all be modified by the user. 

 * Documentation on geometry file generation is available in "pdf": or "html": format. 
 * Documentation on global run controls is available in "html": format. 
 * [[Materials-2-4-1|List of valid materials]] 

 h2. Changing application modules 

 MAUS uses a modular structure in its applications. Uses can alter the modules which a particular application runs or define their own application. The different modules are listed in the [[Components]] section. 

 h2. File IO 

 Data is passed between different parts of the framework in tree-like structured data files. The tree structure is described in the [[DataStructure]] section.
