--------------
20
HGC calibrations
21
- removed runs with bad fits, trends vs. run number combining results from both
22
  fit methods
23
- linear dep (runs ~11800-12800), flat section, then linear dep (~14200-17000)
24
- new version includes slopes for PMTs 1,2 <13600 and >15800
25
- added 1% systmatic unc to all points to avoid points with unrealistically
26
  small errors driving the fits
27
- plan is to make param files based on fit lines for every setting, in 24 hour
28
  chunks, setting up code for divisions of runs
29
  - DG: apparently can input formulas into calibration database, so the linear
30
    trend can be calculated automatically by run number instead of by chunks,
31
    would be both easier and more accurate
32
    - check w/ Cameron Cotton, hpcentral_offset in hmsflags.param
33
- DG: wonder if there is a slow He contamination of the HGC PMTs?
34
  - GH: agree this is a concern, the trend predicts zero gain in 2-3 years
35
  - DG will talk to Ellen to install a He sniifer in the SHMS hut
36

    
37
Corrections to standard.kinematics
38
- communicated w/ BradS for angle camera pics
39
  - old code didn't work, Brad made updates

Junaid Updates
42
--------------
43
HMS calorimeter calib - 2021 run period
44
- fixed path issues, working now
45
- ran scripts on one run so far
46
- sees wiggles in DeltaP vs Edep/P at high delta
47
  - DG: in general, wiggles are worse at low momentum and get better at higher
48
    momentum
49
    - this setting is for 3.7 GeV/c, which is fairly high, so surprising the
50
      wiggles are this prominent
51
  - DG: at delta~8-10% it looks like the code has taken pions and put them at
52
    higher Edep
53
    - it's dangerous to calibrate beyond +/-8%, as the HMS matrix elements are
54
      not fit there and we don't use those data anyways
55
    - H.cer.npe cut is too low, should be >6 pe, you should use tighter cuts to
56
      ensure a clean electron sample for the calibration, don't use the same
57
      cuts as used for the physics analysis
58
  - DG: the wiggles are not a huge concern, as long as there is good separation
59
    between electrons and pi-, the real concern is the evident gap in the
60
    yellow electron band at delta=+6%
61
    - JR: is the gap due to missing blocks?
62
      - doesn't appear to be, the plot of npe vs XY_calor looks full
63
    - GH: please check this for other runs to see if the gap persists, or not
64
      if so, we need to discuss this further
65

    
66
MJ looking for a good reference to understand the focal plane hourglass shape
67
- DG: agrees with GH that John Arrington's thesis is probably the best
68
  reference, there should be a copy in Lab 119

Vijay Updates
71
-------------
72
Stuck on debugging Summer2019 replay code for boiling study
73
- last replayed these data in January for SIMC/Data analysis, but not working
74
  now, due to various system updates done since then
75
- will update Lumi and offset studies when replay is working
76

    
77
Ali Updates
78
-----------
79
Setting up LT replay analysis scripts
80
- replayed some settings for pi+ analysis, also ran SIMC for same settings
81
- debugged some analysis scripts, updated cuts
82
- debugged diamond-cut script and t-phi binning script
83
- a few bugs in plotting script still need fixing
84
- generated pi+ SIDIS MC for Portia (summer student) to check background under
85
  pi+Delta0
86
- will forward PeterB's Delta Breit-Wigner shape code to DG for SIMC
87

--------------

PARTONS GPD code
91
- reached out to PARTONS authors, Pavel Sznajder replied fairly promptly
92
  - he gave some suggestions on implementing sig_L,T output, agreed it is a
93
    good thing to do, they just hadn't gotten around to it yet
94
- following formulas to get from helicity amplitudes to cross sections in GK
95
  2009 paper
96
  - reference: Kamal Tezgin (UConn) PhD thesis (2022) on implementation of GK
97
    into PARTONS
98
  - find a discrepancy between PARTONS output and pi+ cross sections sent
99
    earlier by Kroll to GH for an experiment LOI that was not approved
100
  - JR will look for pi0 calculations by GK that AP can also compare with
101
  - GH will send the HERMES exclusive pi+ paper which also includes curves by
102
    GK
103
