    • ACTION: Add data_analyzable flag for each detector in post processing to CDB (Detector software heads) #1585
  • Tracker (P. Kyberd)
    • 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)
    • Flag low pt for downstream tracker reconstruction? (A. Dobbs)

    • 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)
  • Detector output
    • Get detector output in global coordinate system (C. Heidt, C. Hunt), see #1631
  • ACTION: Detectors to provide uncertainties from reconstructions on: positions; momenta; tof time (A. Dobbs)
  • ACTION: Implement dE/dx in Runge-Kutta (J. Greis)

Monte Carlo

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

Geometry

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

  • GRID running 1.0.0
    • Enable MC GRID running again #1739
    • execute_against_data.py to always produce tarball Is this still relevant?
  • Offline Rec running 1.3.0

Infrastructure

  • J. Greis reporting issues with the reducer API, related to #1762
  • 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)
  • Fix matplotlib install (A. Dobbs)

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

New release due out end of this / start of next. DR would like to get the current bets preprod geometry pushed to main cdb at same time so he can reprocess data with both.

Schedule

Detectors

  • KL
  • Ckov
  • EMR

Extensive updates, see presentation. Hoping to get it all in to 1.4.0 release.

  • Tracker
  • TOF

Global Reconstruction

Been waiting for various detectors fixes. Work will restart when 1.4.0 is released.

Monte Carlo

New field maps from Holga available.

Geometry

Preprod geometry to be tested by detector people:

$MAUS_ROOT_DIR/bin/utilities/download_geometry --cdb_download_url http://preprodcdb.mice.rl.ac.uk/cdb/ --geometry_download_by id --geometry_download_id 698

Online Reconstruction

Now managed by Yordan. New system hopefully will become standard in the next User Cycle.

Batch Offline Reconstruction

D. Maletic willing to come in and help, D. Rajaram will respond to him.
