Since superimposing background files is way too taxing in terms of speed (<1hz), we need to add randomized background hits

  • File plots_GMn13.5bkgd.pdf added
  • Status changed from New to In Progress
  • Assignee set to Eric Fuchey
  • % Done changed from 0 to 10

Analyzed the background plots for GMn13.5 GeV2, ready to put them in libsbsdig, or almost:
Need to take a decision as to whether we are happy with the very rough approximation from the landau fit (and generate the hit energy deposits from those fits) or if we want something more elaborate such as integration and inversion of histograms.

#2 Updated by Eric Fuchey about 1 year ago

  • % Done changed from 10 to 80

Added and implemented a class to generate the randomized background. This class loads the histograms from an input file and generates the background for each event.
This is still in debugging process.
