Richard

-------
21
Failed jobs in Q2=2.1 W=2.95 replay
22
- presented list of runs that consistently failed replay
23
  - get a corrupted ROOT file
24
  - had to retry some runs several times
25
  - errors are put into a logfile on volatile for checking
26
- for one Dummy Run (7897) got a dtype error
27
  - likely a pyroot/C++ pointer issue
28

    
29
Update on XSect iteration script
30
- now doing a 2D fit function of both Q2, t-dep, instead of two 1D fits
31
  - fitting equations are now consistent with what is in SIMC
32
  - it's also *important* to check that the weight recalculation script (after
33
    the iteration) also uses the same equations
34

Ali

37
Working on other kinematics for piDelta BSA, including Left, Right settings
38
- doing shape study for t-bins where we have good statistics
39
- drafting text for Trento workshop whitepaper on Transition GPDs
40
  - will circulate something to rest of group soon
41

    
42
Vijay
43
-----
44
Working on LT-sep analysis
45
- having difficulty getting fits of model parameters to L/T/LT/TT to converge
46
- GH is happy to help look through code to see if he spots anything
47

    
48
Alicia
49
------
50
Similar to Richard, issues with replay scripts failing
51
- redid failed runs by hand, nearly done
52

    
53
Dave

55
Further investigation of MM resolution issue
56
- plot of hsxpfp vs. MX, Run 4916, P_HMS=5.292
57
- in 6GeV era, a saturation correction to delta was derived and implemented in
58
  ENGINE
59
  - this correction exists in hcana, but is turned off, since the needed
60
    correction depends on the used HMS matrix elements, which are different now
61
    than 6GeV era
62
  - need to refit the correction for new HMS matrix elements
63

    
64
- Dave does an ad-hoc correction, which seems pretty effective
65
  delta_corrected=delta-6.0*hsxpfp
66
  - reduces sigma_MX=7.34MeV to 6.27MeV
67

    
68
- other HMS momenta will need different corrections
69
  - Ali & Alicia will point DG to the correct ROOT trees for other HMS
70
    settings, and he will come up with corrections for other HMS momenta
71
- this effect came from the current offset in the Q3 power supply
72
  - this power supply was replaced in 2021 (recall the fire!), no longer an
73
    issue, correction needed for KaonLT data, but DG checked the data and
74
    PionLT data are okay
75

    
76
- DG: after removing the hxspfp correlation, which will improve the resolution
77
  of the data, we will then need to adjust the resolution in SIMC to match the
78
  data
79

Nacer
81
-----
82
DC calibration checks
83
- lots of useful help from Junaid
84
  - K+ event cuts give poor statistics, should re-try with pi+ cuts, which have
85
    ~10x more statistics
86

    
87
Junaid
88
------
89
Working on tracking efficiency scripts
90
- was using wrong LTsep package, scripts now working with Richard's help
91
- will have some results soon
92

The rest of the meeting was giving comments on Richard, Nathan, Alicia's slides
95
for next week's Hall C workshop
