Schedule

Detectors

Detector integration (D. Rajaram)

  • ACTION: Add data_analyzable flag for each detector in post processing to CDB (Detector software heads) #1585, #1689

Tracker (P. Kyberd)

  • Fix tracker MC no MCS x' 1s.d. deviation bug (P. Kyberd)
  • ACTION Fix Pattern Recognition bugs - 50 MeV/c excess, MINUIT misreconstruction at low pt #1807 (C. Hunt)
  • Space-point, track-finding efficiency studies partly blocked by lack of trigger #1182

TOF (D. Rajaram)

  • Restructure TOF MC Digitizer - part of trigger MC (D. Rajaram)

EMR (F. Drielsma)

  • Several EMR reconstruction improvements and bug fixes in the trunk

KL (M. Bogomilov)

CKOV (D. Rajaram)

  • Calibration
  • Validate CKOV MC against data

Global Reconstruction (M. Uchida/C. Rogers)

ACTION: new information in the work book and in the documentation

Monte Carlo

  • Monte Carlo trigger (D. Rajaram) #1182
    • Restructure TOF Digitisation and incorporate MapCppTrigger (D. Rajaram)

Geometry and CDB

  • Want to be able to pull down tracker calibration data at the start of every run (better for online rec)
    • CDB C++ API written, but not yet ready for use

Third party libraries

  • ROOT6 upgrade (was AD) (On Hold)

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

  • GRID MC running
  • Offline Rec running with 3.0.1

Infrastructure

  • Multiple tracks per trigger
  • Complete Output API
    • Make OutputCppRoot inherit from IModule
    • No more casting from py_obj* to determine Spill, RunFoooter, RunHeader, JobFooter, JobHeader type?
    • Make base class for Spill, RunFooter, RunHeader, JobFooter, JobHeader
  • Make OutputCppRoot work with cpp reducers in general (ok if some specific ones do not)
  • Fix the Reducer API to all running multiple reducers in a chain
  • Find a way of making the spill and event number accessible through the data structure detector event classes

Performance

  • Speed improvements for MC
  • Multithread MAUS for reggular use, not just online recon (AD, DR)

Event Viewer

Documentation

  • Update tracker (P. Kyberd)

Release Status

Schedule

Detectors

  • Tracker
    • CH changes merged in the trunk
  • TOF
    • Victor: Low efficiency in reconstruction of space points, mainly in TOF2: spacepoints not reconstructed in the outer regions where PMT are not well calibrated, outer slabs are miscalibrated. Offset in slab DT of about 20 to 50 ps (Dt difference between horizontal and vertical slabs).
      Big part of the inefficiency is due to: cut on Dt we are counting events that should not be reconstructed. Need a more deeper looking into that.
      Scott investigating on a way to improve the calibration of outer slabs.
    • Dt discrepancy. The offset comes from the calibration. Can be again a wrong calibration at the edges.

Global Reconstruction

Monte Carlo

Geometry and CDB

Durga: Scale factors implemented with datacards.
The TKU and TKD butterfly and PRY aperture: need a value to be changed.

Analysis

  • Cuts data structure:
    Idea of rewriting the code to be more flexible for the implementation of several new cuts (30/40 have been proposed).
    • ACTION: coordinate with Ajit and Misha (and Chris)

AOB

  • Next meeting: 24, January 2018
