MINOS at Indiana University
This site is devoted to IU specific/coordinated MINOS activities.
A by-topic listing of the software information available from this site.
IU has taken on the responsibility of collecting and distributing
the software for the minos experiment. The source code repository
is located on an alpha osf/1 machine and distributed using the cvs
mechanism for concurrent development.
IU's initial role was in developing the geant-based simulation of
the detector setup (gminos). We are also working with others
to integrate software to simulate neutrino physics and the beam line
into a coherent package. Additionally we have written code to model
the response of the active detectors.
IU is contributing to the design of a liquid scintillator based detector.
Our principle inputs to-date are: measurements of the reflectance curves
of potential extrusion materials, simulation of the geometrical and
reflection effects on light capture by the waveshifting fiber.
Overview of the software
Users might wish to familiarize themselves with the software effort
by viewing a diagram
that sketches the general flow of the event simulations.
Material presented to the
R&D advisory committee
can also serve as an overview.
How to get software help
Some hints on getting help
with the MINOS software.
A list of questions/answers
that have come up.
