CERN Accelerating science

Workplan 2016

Items for 2016

Ongoing activities

  • Documentation of physics lists(~All)
  • Release, candidate and reference tag testing for physics performance on Grid (Alberto, Dmitri, George, Witold)
  • Maintain physics list level test and monitor model performance (Julia)
  • Physics Validation and Grid (Kihyeon, Soonwook, Sang Wan)
  • Maintain physics contructors and physics lists (many.., put your name please)
  • Maintain and further develop validations for SATIF and releated fields (Tatsumi)
  • Collecting and evaluate experimental datasets (Hans, Julia, Krzysztof, Robert)
  • Support for changes of model parameters (Hans, Julia, Krzysztof, Robert)

Development Items

  • Physics lists factories
    • Evaulate the merging existing factory G4GenericPhysicsList and new G4alt::G4PhysListFactory (Robert H.)
    • Evaluate to replace G4PhysListFactory with new G4alt::G4PhysListFactory (Andrea, Gunter)
    • Complete standalone PLFactory tests in test38 - (Robert H.)
      • Need to add testing for Windows
  • Define MT cleanup strategy for builders and physics processes in MT mode (Andrea)
  • Documentation
    • produce graphs showing overlap of models (currently done by hand), very useful as a simple graph for new users (Andrea)
    • complete automated physics list documentation (Dennis,Gunter)
    • integrate generated documentation in web documentation(Alex, Dennis, Gunter)
    • complete inventory of existing web-based documentation on physics lists(manuals, web pages, etc.) (Julia)
    • start planning how to consolidate web-based documentation (Julia, Gunter, Alex)
  • Complete set-up for regression testing for main physics models with upload of results to Database (Andrea, Hans, Julia)
    • Create set-up to run regression testing at process level at KISTI (Andrea, with help from KISTI)
  • Validation Database and web application
    • Extend capabilities of validation DB web interface (Hans with feedback from collaboration or users)
    • Further develop artg4tk framework to study experimental observables (Hans)
      • artg4tk was used to run the validation test against the franz data and pion and kaon cross section measurements.
      • Use a modified artg4tk to study the parameters of the bertini cascade (Julia).
    • extend set of experimental data used in validation, allow to combine compatible data sets (Hans, with feedback on datasets in use)
    • provide new upload of histograms (from simulation) (Hans and Andrea)
    • Revise schema of validation DB (Dmitri, Hans)
    • fill the database under the new schema with experimental data and existing validation results (Dmitri, Hans)
    • Replication of validation DB at CERN (Dmitri, Hans)
