Analysis Files Available @ FNAL

The NC working group stores the AnalysisNtuples (antp) made from the standard reconstruction ntuples on /minos/data/analysis/nc/, which is viewable from all of the MINOS cluster nodes. All data and Monte Carlo files are stored under directories labeled by software releases. The condensed ntuple, or uDST, files are also available in this directory.

Previously the files were stored on afs in the disks listed in the table below. New files will not be added to the afs directories after November 27, 2007. These afs disks are used for back-up purposes only. The back-ups listed below are snapshots of the data from July 16, 2008.

Meeting Agendas, Talks, Minutes

Attention As of May 1, 2007 the phone connection for meetings has changed. The new connection information is below.

Phone: 510-665-5437

Meeting ID: 8943

Attention As of November 2005, meeting agendas and materials are posted in the MINOS Documents Database, DocDB. Working Group convenors and meeting participants use these instructions to create a meeting, enter an agenda, and post materials. A meeting must be created before participants can upload their materials.

NuMI-L-481: “Low Δm2 sensitivity of the T-Test” (public mode)

NuMI-L-612: “Physics potential of the three PH2 beam designs” - contains a section on T-Test sensitivities. Includes a newer guesstimate of systematic errors. (public mode)

NuMI-L-660: “Τ to π in THESEUS” - contains an updated calculation of MINOS sensitivity in this channel. (public mode)

NuMI-L-691: “ν → νsterile in MINOS” - the analysis in detail. (public mode)

NuMI-P-875: “A Long-baseline Neutrino Oscillation Experiment at Fermilab” - Original MINOS proposal; spells out the T-Test algebra in gory detail. Also the source of the early systematic error estimate.
