Forward Physics Analysis Software


The goal of this page is to describe the specific software that is used in the analysis done in Forward Physics Group. The main group page is CMS Forward physics.

Analysis software

The common Forward physics analysis software resides in the CMSSW/DiffractiveForwardAnalysis package in the CMSSW cvs directory. It contains subdirectories for performed analysis. Below one can find links to each analysis Software Page.


Detector and transport

  • HECTOR - a stand-alone code to simulate the proton transport through the LHC beamline up to 420m from the interaction point. It resides in the CMSSW/SimTransport directory of the CMSSW cvs repository. Here are the instructions on how to run HECTOR in CMSSW.
  • The Proton taggers - package provides a method to simulate the acceptance of detectors installed 420 and 220 m from IP5 (in both beam directions). The code for Fast Simulation resides in the CMSSW/FastSimulation/ProtonTaggers directory of CMSSW cvs repository. Code for Full Simulation is not yet available.

MC generators
