Performance

  • Speed improvements
    • Fix memory leaks - preventing GRID runnning (A. Dobbs, D. Rajaram, C. Rogers)
    • YK proposes parallelising MAUS with C++11 multi-threading, at the mapper level, see #1638 (A. Dobbs, D. Rajaram, C. Rogers, Y. Karadzhov)
      • Extensive refactor work
  • Beam generation excessive resource usage
    • Query analysis group requirements (in particular how many G4BL beams we need)
    • Consider alternative upstream beam generation code

Documentation

  • Finish MAUS workbook (A. Dobbs)

AOB

  • MAUS paper draft - developers please review and supply input where required launchpad

Detectors

  • Detector Integration
  • KL
  • Ckov
  • EMR
  • Tracker
    • Optimization further down C. Hunt list due to alignment work
    • HelicalPR on or off flag currently working due only same value across both trackers, need to able to do for tracker individually
    • C. Hunt comparing tracker straight data with MC - looks good though seeing sign flip
  • TOF

Global Reconstruction

  • Global coordinates work around making progress (C. Pidcott)
  • Uncertainties present from EMR, KL and tracker, TOF workaround (half bar width in place)
  • dE/dx blocking J. Greis work - M. Uchida will talk to him offline
  • C. Pidcott needs some help with MiceModule functionality (Find Module By Name function not working) - will work out with R. Bayes

Unpacking

Infrastructure

  • Geometry
    • Current geometry should be available by next week
  • MC
  • G4BL
  • GRID
