h2. Overview 


 MAUS (MICE Analysis User Software) is the "MICE project's": tracking, detector reconstruction and accelerator physics analysis framework. MAUS is designed to fulfil a number of functions for physicists interested in studying MICE data: 

 * Model the behaviour of particles traversing MICE 
 * Model the MICE detector's electronics response to particles 
 * Perform pattern recognition to reconstruct particle trajectories from electronics output 
 * Provide a framework for high level accelerator physics analysis 
 * Provide online diagnostics during running of MICE 

 In addition to MAUS's role within MICE, the code is also used for generic accelerator development, in particular for the Neutrino Factory.
