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 (A. Dobbs)
  • 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)

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

Notes

Attendance

Misha, Scott and Chris Hunt

Release Status

Next release before Christmas

Schedule

Detectors

  • Tracker
    • CH took over the pattern recognition
    • CH: has been understanding the code in the last weeks and has an idea how to mitigate the effect for low momentum tracks where the radius is compatible with the effects of the scattering.
    • CH: is also looking at a different fit model for MINUIT
    • CH: multiple seeds in the pattern recognition
    • CHunt planning on looking at:
      • systematics in track fit
      • can we mitigate dead channels' effect on the recon?
    • CH and MU: change the information that are used in the digitizer in order to perform a better noise rejection
  • TOF
    • SW: the low TOF2 efficiency is fixed (since the last CM). The problem was not in MAUS but was in the calibration code, where the calibration didn't reached the edges of TOF2. New run taken in the last Cycle show better efficiency. Scott to update/close the ticket.
    • SW: Momentum discrepancy. Still to be solved.

Global Reconstruction

  • C. Rogers working on the globals

Monte Carlo

Geometry and CDB

Third party libraries

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

Infrastructure

Performance

Event Viewer

  • DR has done some analysis into crashes -- SciFiDigit and SciFiCluster may be contributors, MS still thinks MiceModules are causing issues too
  • Offline now also crashes when EVReducer is used, MS will try to fix, and send to AD to look at too
  • Agreed to focus on making sure EV works offline, online less relevant now due to only limited running time on MICE

Build system / Version control

  • MS encountered the infamous "Python.h not found" build error, and fixed it, AD requested he puts it on the issue tracker for reference

Analysis

  • Cuts data structure
    • Durga helped Misha with the bug he had about two libraries, one of which was not necessary.
    • Conflict for the SciFi in the merge to be solved. CH is going to have a look.

AOB

  • Next meeting: 29th November 2017
