Nathan
19
------
20
- No new results to show, busy on Commitee report & TA
21
- Helped setup the software for Junaid for Hodoscope calibrations
22

Hodoscope v_prop calib for 2022 Run Period
26
- plot of delta(x) vs beta(y)
27
- run 14996, start of Summer 2022 beam
28
  - HMS: significant improvement
29
  - SHMS_ a peculiar gap noticed on the plots near delta=0, 
30
    - need to investigate without HGC cut to make sure problem isn't with hodo
31
- Run 16558, later in Summer 2022 beam period
32
  - compare 14996 calib (before) with new calib (after)
33
  - only minor improvement seen compared to 14996 calib
34
  - DG says these small differences are acceptable, can use only one calib for
35
    2022 data
36

    
37
Next steps
38
- will do same for 2021, compare 14996 calib to a new one
39
  - probably will use separate calibs for 2021, 2022, but not sure yet
40
- after this, then go back to recheck DC calibs
41

    
42
Vijay
43
-----
44
- replaying Heep coin data with new offsets to be sure they are implemented
45
  correctly
46
  - GH will send Vijay expected residuals with these offsets, for comparison
47
    with replay result
48

    
49
Next steps
50
- will start Lumi study after Heep offsets finalized
51

    
52
Richard
53
-------
54
Spoke w/IT about iFarm problems
55
- sounds like it's caused by huge Hall B jobs, won't reset iFarm until Oct 17
56

    
57
CoinTime leakage issue in 10.6GeV data
58
- plot of SHMS Beta vs. Coin time for Q2=2.1, high epsilon data
59
  - shows the peculiar two tails due to bad coin time
60
  - after PID cut the two tails are mostly reduced for kaons
61
- Dave: Need to estimate the correction from pion data, then included for kaon
62
  data.  The reason why it's not as evident in K+ data is due to lower
63
  statistics.
64
- need determine a beta-cut efficiency to apply to data
65
  - one possibility:
66
    - apply MM cut to select pi+n but w/o beta or CT cuts (denominator)
67
    - then apply beta cut in addition (numerator)
68
- GH will set up a meeting with Ali & Richard next Monday to discuss the
69
  determination of the correction and its implementation
70

    
71
Starting model parameters for LT-separation
72
- found a simple equation for t_average (tav) in formulas
73
- GH: it sigLT, sigTT are too large, just set starting parameters to zero
74
- GH: for sigL, sigT, all you want to do is to find an initial set which does
75
  not have crazy behavior (such as negative weights), when the iterations are
76
  working they will converge fairly quickly to more accurate values
77
  - suggest to sit down with a calculator and find some initial values that are
78
    not crazy

82
Computed in-plane offsets for the lower energy KaonLT data
83
- Investigated the adequate number of data points to be used to extract the
84
  offsets: 
85
  - Low Q2 summer 2019 (3 energies)
86
  - Lowest 5 energies
87
  - KaonLT 5 beam energies
88
  - all 8 beam energies
89
- noticed some higher/lower offsets between the different sets
90
  - Tanja: dpe, dthp seem driven by lowest energy data
91
- GH wants to generate some offsets for only the higher beam energies
92
  - Dave: would be interesting to exclude data for HMS above 5 GeV/c momentum,
93
    to avoid HMS saturation issues
94

    
95
Next Meeting
96
------------
97
- Tues Oct 17 @ 15:00 Eastern/13:00 Regina/12:00 Pacific
98
  - KaonLT will go first
99
- GH will distribute a poll soon to select times for Nov-Dec meetings
