  1. Hybrid calorimeter simulation update


Attendees: Liping G., Sascha S., S.T.

  • Liping is working with Sean T. and Emilie P. on an article for Physics Reports that they plan to submit to arxiv in the beginning of May; we can use this to bolster the physics case of the proposal.
  • S.T. has turned on the EM background in the Hybrid simulation and tuned the beam parameters to be closer to the expected high luminosity GlueX phase; simulated events for π0π0 and η→3π0 are being produced right now but the production rate is slow. He is also working on tuning the double π0 cut for the π0γγ channel.
  • Sascha has been trying to process selected PYTHIA background events through the farm but many of his jobs are still pending. He is using the CentOS6 nodes; he plans to switch to the CentOS7 nodes.
