Status of tests and releases for Sim08

Last update on : 11 Mar 2013


1). Test very latest version of Pythia 6 with CTEQ6L.

Require new production of min bias and inclusive b with Gauss v43r4 (new Pythia6 427, i.e. Sim07a)
Help Productions min bias and inclusive b ready, to be looked at by Marco A.

2). As 1. but also with latest version of EvtGen,

Require new production of min bias and inclusive b with Gauss v44r4 (i.e. Sim07b) Help Productions min bias and inclusive b ready, to be looked at by Marco A.

3). Modify script for generator statistics to use xml summary instead of log files

Stop Person needed to work on this

4). Check fixes for Pythia8.

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.

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

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?
