operator overloading/overloading a function
proposal: we continue to support both a global
(detector-level) coordinate system as well as a local coordinate
system for individual detector elements (e.g. strips (logical vs.
question: do we continue to use cm as our basic
unit of length?
question: do we continue to use the tpos (transverse position) variable.
Is this useful? Is it well defined. A related question is the
definition of the rotations X,Y,U,V. Perhaps, U and V should be
redefined to straddle the X rather than the Y orientation.
An source of particles, generated by an external program, that serves as
input to the simulation. These simulate a variety of physics sources.
question: what about correlated muons from
atmospheric showers ... are these fluxes or inputted events?
- neutrino flux
- NuMI beam simulation
- muon flux
- comic rays
- rock interactions (CC neutrino events)
The input to a uniquely identifiable electronics channel.
question: is this to be exactly a channel, or
should cross-talk impose a distinction between the two?
A length of scintillating plastic.
question: what about "logical" vs. "physical" strips,
i.e., does the term refer to aligned strips that are in two parts
due to the break imposed by the coil, or is each strip a single
unbroken piece of plastic.
A sequence of passive and active detector planes that constitute a logical
proposal: The baseline MINOS detectors each have two (see discussion below).
