I e-mailed Andrei and Zisis then spoke directly with Zisis at the collaboration meeting (2/2/2011). Here is the text from Andrei's and Zisis' e-mails that sum it up:


We have the transitional period of digesting of everything that was done
before us on the BCal reconstruction code, and right now, we trying to
understand the results and consequences from the code we picked up from
Indiana. We plan to start to discuss our observations next-week Thursday
meeting, and as for the "global strategical" point of view, I do believe
that Zisis can share his thoughts on the issue.


Hello David:

just a couple of lines to echo what Andrei said earlier.

Yes, it is true that Andrei and Irina are now at the initial stages of BCAL reconstruction code ownership, picking up the thread from the IU guys, Matt and Jake. It took a few weeks to get everything to work right for her, and in the process I believe the entire code plus HDGeant are checked in the repository completely and correctly.

Irina stated running the simulations last week. She is starting to generate some spectra but it is too early to report on anything during the collaboration meeting. We will show some first results during next week's CALWG meeting. However, in the longer run I believe that a more appropriate forum is in the OFFLINE WG meeting so we will start attending those.

As far as the details, we plan to understand the output of the code as is, with all of the bells and whistles that Matt & Co installed. A detailed checking will take place with "individual" segmentation as well as the "summed" towers, and a couple of variants of that as well. Things that need to be looked at include, among others, are efficiency of reconstruction, energy resolution as a function of thresholds, noise, etc, and the effect of splitoffs and overlaps on the reconstruction with and without summing.

We will report on these periodically in the future as the results become available.

See you guys at the meeting, where I would be happy to discuss further details.

Cheers, Zisis...
