Preparing for LT-sep iterations
20
- Ratio of Data/MC vs. phi for different t bins for both low/high epsilon looks
21
  more consistent
22
  - set interference terms LT,TT to zero
23
  - sigL had a (t-0.2) type term, removed for now
24
    - the motivation of the (t-0.2) in the Fpi-2 pi-/pi+ analysis was to give a
25
      simple proxy for t'
26
    - the dependence of the Ratios vs t once the iterations start will give
27
      information on what the data will require as far as t-dependent
28
      parameterization is concerned
29

    
30
- Short routine to recompute SIMC weights after an iteration, to avoid having
31
  to re-run SIMC after each iteration
32
  - Still working to improving weight computation
33
  - Garth: use a ratio method to compute the weights, to avoid recompute
34
    Jacobians and other factors needed to go from cross section to weight
35
    New_Weight=Old_Weight*(New_dsigma/Old_dsigma)
36
  - Confirm the usage of CM frame variables, before computing the weights
37
  - will almost certainly need to add variables to SIMC ROOT tree to do the new
38
    weight calculation efficiently

HeepCoin comparison after Garth's offsets
43
- offsets used were determined using only 2.7, 3.6, 4.5 GeV data
44
  - Vijay justified this choice by the fact that this set had P_SHMS offset
45
    equal to zero, which seems more reasonable for these low spectrometer
46
    momenta
47
- Improved W value after applying offsets corrections obtained from Garth
48

    
49
Next Steps
50
- looking at Heep cross-sections using existing cryotarget boiling corr
51
- also looking at Lumi correction script for Summer 2019 data
52

55
More on the HeepCoin offsets
56
- looked at Vijay's data for other variables: EM, PMX, PMZ, W
57
- the results seems overall in agreement with predicted quantities
58
  - EM is worst variable in terms of reconstruction, which is disappointing
59
  - overall, observed behavior with offsets is slightly worse than predicted
60
- Low Q^2 data at low -t<0.01 is sensitive to correct offsets
61

    
62
- Still need to investigate for other energies
63
  - Richard should try GH's offsets determined for 3 highest beam energies
64

    
65
  - GH might ask Vijay to rerun using an alternate set of offsets for
66
    comparison, GH needs to do more study first

69
------
70
No report.  Working on PhD committee report and slides
71

    
72
Junaid
73
------
74
New parameters for Hodo Vp for 2021 and 2022
75
- still need to see if gap in distribution at x=0 is there or not after
76
  removing HGC cut
77

    
78
Alicia
79
------
80
Had a meeting yesterday to come up with a plan for the CT "leakage" problem in
81
10.6 GeV data
82
- will not affect BSA analysis, except that will have to apply Beta cut before
83
  selecting random windows
84

    
85
Ali

87
Just returned from Pakistan.  The plan going forward:
88
- Study Beta cut dependence on data rates and on other variables, to see if the
89
  CT leakage correction is stable, or not
90
- will start with Heep data, then move to physics
91
- will calculate separate corrections for pi/K/p, to see if they're equivalent
92
  (within errors)
93

    
94
- will calculate the CT leakage correction in the report files, so it will be
95
  available for all runs in the nxt replay
96

    
97
- Tanja: will the correction determined from only some runs, or all?
98
  - AU: it depends on what the data show.  We hope it's not rate dependent, but
99
    we have to check.  Maybe the HeepCoin data give the most reliable
100
    correction.

-----
104
Working on selection optimization for KaonLT data @ 3.8 GeV
105
- copied some output ROOT files from iFarm to local workstation
106
- Good news: There is no Coin Time vs. Beta tails observed for these data.
107
- particle ID studies for K+ in progress
108
