Requires new production with either Gauss v43r4 or v44r4. I proposed to use Gauss v44r4 so that we check that the connection to the new EvtGen works fine.

Help Productions min bias and inclusive b ready, to be looked at by Aurelien.
 

5). Test very latest version of Pythia8 175. This requires the new release of Gauss early next week (based on latest LHCb).

Changed:
<

6). Continue tests with EvtGen, reports expected by working groups. Patrick, we should recommend to use Gauss v44r4, correct?

8). Test new particle property table. It requires a new tag in dddb that is being prepared, so it can be used together with the release of next week: requires changes in LbPythia8. Patrick, does it require changes in anything else?

9). Test new decay.dec with PDG2012. Being prepared. It should be ready in 1 week if no bad surprises.

10). Verify calibration of calorimeters with latest Geant4. Requires particle gun productions with calo only: Patrick, sim or xdigi files? If XDIGI check that Boole options exist in Boole or AppConfig since now the containers are no longer written out.

11). Check timing for EmNoCuts (candidate) and EmLHCb by Vladimir. I will ask him again.

12). Corrections for G4 dE/dx in Silicon trackers in Boole. To be put in SIMCOND: NIgel can you check with David H. and Mark T.?

13). Corrections for momentum resolution with G4 dE/dx in Boole. To be put in AppConfig: check with Maurizio

14). Tests to check asymmetry with LHEP and FTPF. Requires productions of signal with Gauss v42r4 + LHEP (reference) and Gauss v43r4 + LHEP and v43r4 + FTFP. Jeroen will look into these productions.

15). Reports for LHEP and FTFP cross sections and multiplicity at next simulation meeting on 5th March by Luca Pescatore. Nigel do you also have an updated reports on the EM?

16). Prepare released of G4 v95r2p2 (identical to v95r2p1 but built against latest Gaudi). Nigel can you take care of this?

17). Prepare whole processing pass: Gauss, Boole, Moore, Brunel, DaVinci and test with no writing of HepMC. Gauss release of next week, Moore being prepared. Boole and Brunel ok, DaVinci should also be ok.

18). Test full chain with current upgrade geometry. Requires XDST centrally produced with Gauss v42r4, Boole v26r2, Brunel v44r2. Productions being prepared.

19). Introduce VL and VL compact: requires new upgrade DBASE and Gauss with new LHCb. DBASE being prepared by Sajan, Gauss release of next week if possible, otherwise week after. Tests and possible changes to Gauss by Paul.

20). Introduce VP compact: requires new upgrade DBASE. VP to provide it for Sajan to integrate. Sajan do you have a timescale?

Work in progress, under construction Gauss v45r0 released. Need also release of DDDB with new particle table. Clarifying what is needed. See Point 7).

6). Continue tests with EvtGen, reports expected by working groups.

Recommended to use Gauss v44r4 until Gauss v45r0+DBASE is ready.
Yes / Done Reports by RD, Charm, B2OC, B2CC, BnoC, Onia
Work in progress, under construction Work on Pythia8 options for EW and Exotica groups.

7). Test new particle property table.

Help It requires a new tag in dddb that is being prepared, so it can be used together with Gauss v45r0: requires changes in LbPythia8 that are in this release.
Checking with Patrick which one is the last one to use (two savannah entries in different places)

8). Test new decay.dec with PDG2012.

Work in progress, under construction Being prepared. It should be ready this week if no bad surprises.

9). Understand crashes in productions and nightlies in Photospp from new EvtGen

Work in progress, under construction May be due to use of old particle property table.

Geant4 and detectors simulation

10). Check EM physics with new G4

%ICON{choice-yes} Stand alone studies reported at simulation meetings by Nigel and Peter. No difference in dE/dx for different options. High failure rate reported in production by Vladimir with pgun EmOpt3. %ICON{stop} Proposal of studies to understand Brem effects MC10 vs MC11 with Dave Ward. Not blocking for Sim08

11). Verify calibration of calorimeters with latest Geant4.

Stop Requires particle gun productions with calo only. XDIGI files? Prepared Boole options exist in AppConfig since now the containers are no longer written out. Checking with Patrick and Alexandra what productions are needed. Will submit them ASAP.

12). Check timing for EmNoCuts (candidate) and EmLHCb.

Stop Vladimir to provide numbers

13). Corrections for G4 dE/dx in Silicon trackers in Boole.

Yes / Done David H. and Mark T. confirmed existing values are valid

14). Corrections for momentum resolution with G4 dE/dx in Brunel.

%ICON{help} Maurizio M. is checking is difference in correction for MC11 due to different value of property set. He will prepare options to put in AppConfig.

15). Check of IP with new G4

%ICON{help} David H. reported that with new G4 and latest VELO RF in DBASE the MSc has slightly improved, particularly at low momentum. To be checked against studies for MC11 where only RF foil was modified. No differences observed between EmNoCuts and EmLHCb.

16). Check of cross sections and multiplicities in LHEP and FTFP

Yes / Done Studies by Jimmy and Luca reported at Simulation Meetings. Absolute cross sections better for FTFP against data. Also gamma produced in hadronic interactions.
Stop Should check on detectors multiplicities. Inclusive b will be produced with this for RICH studies and can be used to check all detectors multiplicities.

17). Tests to check impact of asymmetry on physics with LHEP and FTPF.

%ICON{help} Productions of signal with Gauss v43r4 + LHEP ready and v43r4 + FTFP almost done. Jeroen will look into these productions early next week.

18). Investigate reason of high rate of stalled jobs with FTFP.

Stop Need to understand if we can start the production even if this is not solved. BUT this is not sustainable so must understand where it comes from. Investigate also with G4 team.

19). Prepare released of G4 v95r2p2 (identical to v95r2p1 but built against latest Gaudi).

%ICON{choice-yes} Done by Nigel. Used by Gauss v45r0.

Framework and processing

20). Prepare options in AppConfig for Beam 2012 and 2011

Work in progress, under construction Gloria collected information and preparing them for release taking into account beam offset

21). Check possible problem in setting sigma(z) of beam

Stop Reported by Massi that it seems that the value is options is assumed to be bunch length instead of sigma(z). Need to check and in case fix it.

21). Prepare whole processing pass: Gauss, Boole, Moore, Brunel, DaVinci and test with no writing of HepMC.

%ICON{wip}
  • Gauss v45r0 ok (to be replaced by v45r1 end of the week)
  • Boole v26r2 ok
  • Moore v14r8p1 in nightly
  • Brunel v43r2p6 to fix issue with Calo digit linkers to be prepared today
  • DaVinci should be ok.
  • Dbase tags for 2011 and 2012 being prepared (may have a new one end of the week for SIMCOND)

Upgrade

22). Port changes of geometry and particle table, etc from standard dbase to upgrade db

23). Test full chain with current upgrade geometry.

Requires XDST centrally produced with Gauss v42r4, Boole v26r2, Brunel v44r2. Productions being prepared.

24). Introduce VL and VL compact

Requires new upgrade DBASE and Gauss with new LHCb.
DBASE being prepared by Sajan, Gauss release of next week if possible, otherwise week after.
Tests and possible changes to Gauss by Paul.

25). Introduce VP compact

Requires new upgrade DBASE. VP to provide it for Sajan to integrate. Timescale?

26). GDML and voxelization of volumes
