Progress and Task Log for Daniel


  • Finalize/clean-up build instructions.
  • Figure-out how to add elements to GUI
  • DONE - Steal Kyle's rather spiffy wiki formatting
  • Get rid of red lines
  • Add way to change material of target in GUI
  • Add way to change particle beam in GUI
  • Display commands issued by GUI
  • Need to be able to turn on magnetic fields
  • Need command interface
  • Ability to list/change variables
  • Need list/glossary of GEANT4 commands (linked from JLAB wiki)
  • ^Plus, need our changes
  • Document XML
  • Make simple, limited XML description
  • Model single chip
  • Make nice macros
  • Are SVT5 and SVT6 micromegas? Is Sim12 model still accurate?
  • Are material descriptions incomplete? If so, should we fill-out?
  • Get sanitized version of Sim12 source
  • Understand how SVT works
  • Write summary of how SVT works

Misc. Notes

  • nTrigger is the number of times the beam is fired.
  • Sim12/Material_HDDS.xml says that XML spec is at http://www.gluex.org/hdds, but get a 404. Maybe $HDDSROOT/HDDS-1_0.xsd is what was there?

Tuesday 24

Started working 3PM, had Freshman Physics int the middle.  Left at 6:30PM.
Experienced crash hitting Uranium target.  Start trying other materials.  Barium crashes too.  Is Barium's (for example) small definition a problem?
Barium crash generates "Unknown Hit Type on SVT1" (for each SVT) error message.
Frustrating that GEANT4 is seemingly so specialized that google returns few people talking about it.
Read on GEANT4 site that ALL particles must be specified (seems reasonable).  Possibly the
interactions are generating undefined particles?  Should search code for error message tomorrow.
Reorganized/expanded my bits of the wiki.
Added GUI elements to Batch Guide.
