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)

  • Merge proposed by FD with several EMR reconstruction improvements and bug fixes

KL (M. Bogomilov)

CKOV (D. Rajaram)

  • Calibration
  • Validate CKOV MC against data

Global Reconstruction (M. Uchida/C. Rogers)

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)

Build system / Version control

Analysis

  • Add analysis cuts to reconstructed data (M. Fedorov, C. Rogers)
    • Add place to hold cuts and bool flags to data structure
    • Add analysis code to correctly set the flags

AOB

Release Status

Schedule

Detectors

  • Tracker
    • CH: Pattern recognition: new algorithm in the branch to address the 50 MeV/c bump
    • CH: Track fit model: mapper for 7469 to re-feed tracks with small radius in order to have a good Pz. Last validation from Victoria before pushing the code.
    • CH: SciFi digitizer, needed new calibration
  • TOF
    • Victor: starting generating plots

Global Reconstruction

  • CR: has done changes and one bug fixed (the material physics stuff was by default off, now is on).
    Changed the data structure (Jan was writing global track but was not clear the origin) that now explicitly tells that are the global track points. An index records the origin of the data with real and global. Now the residuals can be done in a more elegant way.
    At the moment CR is looking at this: in tracks extrapolated from the tracker to TOF there is an affect in the time, dependent on the amplitude of the tracks in the tracker.
    Melissa suggests adding the new information in the work book and in the documentation.

Monte Carlo

Geometry and CDB

  • Durga:
    • Geometry changes: Chris fixes for the LH geometry need to be added for the reprocessing
    • Empty LiH has a wrong vessel in the GDML. Put galactic vacuum instead of the disk
    • Field twick using scale factors: modified the geometry scripts and added datacards for the current scaling

Third party libraries

Infrastructure

Performance

Event Viewer

  • Mihailo: makes the changes in the truck and be ready soon.

Build system / Version control

Analysis

  • Cuts data structure:
    • Misha: was trying to figure out where to apply the momentum cut
