    • Tracker -- Optimise helical pattern recognition

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)
    • ACTION Fix Pattern Recognition bugs that cause loss in efficiency #1807 (A. Dobbs)
    • ACTION Fix tracker coordinate system flips
    • MC studies of effect of 1T field on tracker performance (P. Kyberd, Analysis Group)
    • Space-point, track-finding efficiency studies partly blocked by lack of trigger #1182
    • ACTION: Optimize residuals for final tracks (C. Hunt)
    • ACTION: Fix close to paraxial tracks producing nan output (C. Hunt)
    • ACTION: Update tracker online plots (M. Uchida)
    • ACTION: Fix Kalman x interpolation in absence of seed spacepoint (C. Hunt)
    • Flag low pt for downstream tracker reconstruction? (A. Dobbs)
  • TOF (D. Rajaram)
    • Restructure TOF MC Digitizer - part of trigger MC (D. Rajaram)
  • EMR (F. Drielsma)
  • KL (M. Bogomilov)
  • CKOV (A. Liu, D. Rajaram)
    • Calibration
    • Validate CKOV MC against data

Global Reconstruction

  • Tracking (J. Greis)
  • PID (C. Pidcott)

Monte Carlo

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

Geometry

G4BeamLine

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

  • MAUS running fails on GRID (#1815)
  • GRID running 1.0.0
    • Enable MC GRID running again #1739
    • execute_against_data.py to always produce tarball Is this still relevant?
    • numpy ATLAS library is causing issues on GRID (J. Martyniak, A. Dobbs)
  • Offline Rec running 2.0.0

Infrastructure

  • InputCppRoot still using JSON (and so super slow) (A. Dobbs, C. Rogers) (#1814)
    • New InputCppDataRoot module is fast but crashes quickly
  • Fix geometry test which randomly produces large SOAP error (R. Bayes)
  • Fix problems when setting header_and_footer_mode to "dont_append" (C. Rogers, C. Pidcott)

Performance

  • Speed improvements for MC
  • Beam generation excessive resource usage
    • Query analysis group requirements (in particular how many G4BL beams we need)
    • Consider alternative upstream beam generation code

Tools

Event Viewer

  • Add event viewer to MAUS #1799

Documentation

  • Update tracker (C. Heidt)
  • Update geometry (R. Bayes)

Release Status

  • Development freeze on Monday for next release, any new code needs to be proposed for merge by then.

Schedule

  • Global needs an update

Detectors

  • All detectors
  • KL
  • Ckov
  • EMR
  • Tracker
  • TOF

Global Reconstruction

  • EMR fixed needed for track matching, already proposed and waiting to be merged
  • Tracking matching more or less done, just testing now
    • Run 7469 residuals looking pretty good
    • Testing with straights next
  • Track fitting still to be done, expecting now to use the scifi Kalman implementation
    • A. Dobbs advises to start the sooner the better while C. Hunt is around
  • C. Pidcott having issues with MC for run 7469

Monte Carlo

  • ACTION: Add "MC run number" somewhere - DR

Geometry

  • Quadrupole positions fixed
  • Alignment correction now in
  • GDML and MiceModules now in step with each other

G4BeamLine

Online Reconstruction

  • New framework now the official one, in use for last two weeks
    • Should add to MAUS as third party lib, A. Dobbs to email Y. Karadzhov

Batch Offline Reconstruction

  • D. Maletic has MC production in hand
