    • 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)
    • Flag low pt for downstream tracker reconstruction? (A. Dobbs)

    • 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 and CDB

  • ACTION: Fix geometry diffuser implementation

G4BeamLine

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

  • GRID MC running
  • Offline Rec running with 2.1.0

Infrastructure

  • InputCppRoot still using JSON (and so super slow) (A. Dobbs, C. Rogers) (#1814)
    • New InputCppRootData module is fast but crashes quickly
    • ACTION: Fix InputCppRootData including memory leaks (C. Rogers)
  • 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

2.3.0 to be released at start of next week to get extra Kalman fixes in for the batch reprocessing

Schedule

Detectors

  • All detectors
    • Detector analyzable flag
      • Detector heads need a nudge
      • New CDB field to hold flag should go in in next 2 weeks (J. Martyniak)
  • KL
  • Ckov
  • EMR
  • Tracker
    • C. Hunt updating datastructure to improve trackpoints, leads to backwards compatibility issues
    • Tracker Kalman dE/dz issue now fixed thanks to C. Hunt, will go into next release, much improved momentum residuals
    • Pattern Recognition now looks at all spacepoint combinations and selects fit with best chisq
    • Tracker software paper going well, not far off now
  • TOF

Global Reconstruction

  • J. Greis seeing 150ps time variance vs. TOF0

Monte Carlo

Geometry and CDB

  • Diffuser implementation broken, added as an action
  • J. Martyniak has new CDB interface code which needs to go into a release

G4BeamLine

  • A. Dobbs attempts to upgrade have not been successful, A. Lui may be able to advise

Online Reconstruction

  • No reply for Y. Karadzhov about adding new onrec as a third party to MAUS

Batch Offline Reconstruction

Infrastructure

  • InputCppRoot and InputCppRootData observed by C. Pidcott to produce large memory leaks, added as an action
