Installation / usage of GENIE, done for the pilot run analysis

Note

This is Aki's memo when the FASERnu LOI and pilot run analysis. GENIE has a relatively strong dependence on the versions. v2_12_10, which is rather widely used version, is used for this study. However, this version doesn't have a good implementation of charmed particle productions. If one wants to study numu induced charm production channels (and so the background to nutau CC events) he should use GENIE >=3.2.0 (Not released yet as of July 2020).

Third-party software packages

GSL

May be not necessary. Use buildin in ROOT

cmake -DGSL_ROOT_DIR=/usr/local ..

wget ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gsl/gsl-2.6.tar.gz

./configure

make

(sudo) make install

Pythia

wget http://home.thep.lu.se/~torbjorn/pythia8/pythia8243.tgz


./configure

make

cd examples

make main01

./main01


ROOT

wget https://root.cern/download/root_v6.18.04.Linux-ubuntu14-x86_64-gcc4.8.tar.gz

gunzip root_v6.18.04.Linux-ubuntu14-x86_64-gcc4.8.tar.gz

tar xvf root_v6.18.04.Linux-ubuntu14-x86_64-gcc4.8.tar

source root/bin/thisroot.sh

6.18 needs cmake 3.9 but it cannot be installed in Ubuntu16.04? Try to install 6.14.

Enable buildin-gsl, mathmore, pythia6, pythia6_nolink throught ./configure

./configure --enable-builtin_gsl

--enable-pythia6

--with-pythia6-libdir=/home/scanner/GENIE/pythia6/lib

--enable-mathmore

cd obj

ccmake .

lhapdf

lhapdf-5.9.1

This was difficult to install for Aki. He got the package directly from Callum.

Usage

Make splines

The default GENIE doesn't have the cross section splines above 100 GeV. The cross section splines should be calculated in advance

#!/bin/bash

GENIE_DIR=~/generators/GENIE/v2_12_10
THIS_DIR=$GENIE_DIR/making_splines
cfgname=ValenciaQEBergerSehgalCOHRES

if [ -z $GENIE ]; then source $GENIE_DIR/environment_setup.sh; fi;
export GXMLPATH=${GENIE_DIR}/genie_xsec/v2_12_10/NULL/${cfgname}/data

## Event properties
outFile="FASER_numu_2.5M.root"
nuType="14"
# TARG=1000822080
TARG=1000741840

outFile=${nuType}_${TARG}_spline.xml
logFile=${outFile/.xml/.log}

gmkspl -p ${nuType} -t ${TARG} -n 200 -e 10000 -o $outFile --event-generator-list Default+CCMEC+1K &> ${logFile} &

Generate events at 1 TeV

#!/bin/bash

Generate events with a flat flux (0,9999 GeV)

#!/bin/bash

cfgname=ValenciaQEBergerSehgalCOHRES

# source $GENIE_DIR/environment_setup.sh

export GXMLPATH=${GENIE_DIR}/genie_xsec/v2_12_10/NULL/${cfgname}/data

## Event properties

Generate events with FASERnu spectrum

#!/bin/bash

GENIE_DIR=~/GENIE/Generator

cfgname=ValenciaQEBergerSehgalCOHRES

# source $GENIE_DIR/environment_setup.sh

export GXMLPATH=${GENIE_DIR}/genie_xsec/v2_12_10/NULL/${cfgname}/data

outFile="numu_faser_1M.root"
fluxHist="hnumu"
nuType="14"
logFile=${outFile/.root/.log}

echo ${outFile}
date
gevgen -n ${NEVENTS} -t ${TARG} -p ${nuType} --cross-sections ../${nuType}_${TARG}_spline.xml \

Read GENIE output

GENIE's output is not easy to read. This code (dump_genie) dumps the relevant information into root files.

The Event.C, .h might further help you to deal the data.

  • Makefile: Sample code to read GENIE outputs. This code is modified by Aki from GENIE's sample code "gevscan"
