Instruction file in the shared directory under: /readme/analysisbuild.txt

I'm currently using "NA62AnalysisBuilder.py build -j16 --build-user-only --old-specialtrigger fullanalysis.conf" to build my config file

  • --old-specialtrigger (explained above) is for backward compatibility with datasets that were filtered using an older revision
  • --build-user-only speeds up the build if the framework is built and up-to-date (wouldn't advise this unless this analyser has been built at least once completely)
  • -j16 uses more cores to run the build, also speeding it up
Monte Carlo from cvmfs

Instruction file in the shared directory under: /readme/NA62MC.txt

How to download and run the cvmfs version of the analysis framework to generate a reconstructed MC .root file.

Generating an analyser for a specific (or style of) root file

Instruction file in the shared directory under: /readme/MakeClass_instructions.txt

How to generate an analyser from a root file using the <nop>MakeClass() ROOT function, then subsequently run that function in the ROOT comand line.

Currently working on:

 
Changed:

Generating a Kμ2 normalisation sample to compare the ππ0 and μ+ν normalised branching ratio values, to determine if anything has been missed in the systematics.
  • Step 1: Start generating a sample of Kμ2 data with PNN like cuts from one burst (current file) and organise some output histograms [in progress]
    • Write a new tree to group useful output [done along with a new function in the code]
    • Still to get started on PNN like cuts [ongoing]
  • Step 2: Test on 100 bursts with HTCondor (Stoyan will send me the instructions readme and associated codes when required)
    • Refine cuts and output histograms etc...
  • Step 3: Run on 1k bursts (average run) with HTCondor to try and get some good results
    • e.g. the number of kaon decays for Kμ2
  • Important: The acceptance of each decay has to be studied carefully as not all elements cancel, so everything has to be considered for how it could affect the acceptance with respect to the other decay (PNN or Kμ2)
Possible parallel MC work: [no further information on this as of yet]
  • Altering the Geant4 setup to change the hadronic interaction probability in GTK3 to 1
  • Generating on the order of 100M events
  • Comparing with data
  • Aim: to make an estimation of this background for the PNN errors

Finished:

Generating a Pnn sample from the Kaon code given to me by Giuseppe.

  • Build fails due to class conflict in the public directory files
    • Solution: fixed manually by Giuseppe in the codes, largely by replacing the conflicting "Particle" class with "MyParticle"
  • Further run fails due to a special trigger issue not dependent on the build flag
    • Solution: a special trigger element of the code needs changing when swapping between MC and data files
  • Now working on afs and should be able to set up on any other system (copy placed in: userDir2)

A test analyser, to understand how to generate an analyser from scratch and plot variables in the data files, using the framework as a basis.

  • This analyser is now setup such that it builds and begins to run with the current setup, designed to record the number of spectrometer candidates, but it fails at runtime due to an issue with a special trigger which is not specifically used in the code.
    • Solution: frameworks are not yet completely backwards compatible, I need to use the --old-specialtrigger flag after "build" to get this to work

  • Important: The acceptance of each decay has to be studied carefully as not all elements cancel, so everything has to be considered for how it could affect the acceptance with respect to the other decay (PNN or Kμ2)
Possible parallel MC work:
  • Altering the Geant4 setup to change the hadronic interaction probability in GTK3 to 1
  • Generating on the order of 100M events

Generating a Pnn sample from the Kaon code given to me by Giuseppe.
  • Build fails at ~95% due to an issue with the Particle class definition, the code seems correct, perhaps include is searching for the .hh file in the wrong location
    • Possible solutions, look for: missing files in config (no), discrepancies with working dependency files (no), different combinations of build flags that might work (no)
      • Further issue generated, it seems this can only occur due to circular #include statements between two or more files, this is hard to find in so many files, it's possible this is due to the fact that the library files are out of date, as Stoyan has slightly different versions, I don't know where to get up-to-date versions of these, so I'll ask Giuseppe
    • Last resort idea: full cleanall and rebuild of analysis framework and userdirectory without any shortcuts
  • Met with Giuseppe to breiftly discus the user directory issues for the fullanalysis.conf
    • He suggested running from afs as certain things may not be set up for other systems, so I'm generating a new framework and user directory in my afs work directory, I'm following the instructions in my readme file and am updating for any missing information as I go
      • ssh to lxplus to access my afs version may also improve connection speed, as ssh to Glasgow can be sluggish, especially when opening files

  • Build fails due to class conflict in the public directory files
    • Solution: fixed manually by Giuseppe in the codes, largely by replacing the conflicting "Particle" class with "MyParticle"
  • Further run fails due to a special trigger issue not dependent on the build flag
    • Solution: a special trigger element of the code needs changing when swapping between MC and data files
  • Now working on afs and should be able to set up on any other system (copy placed in: userDir2)
 A test analyser, to understand how to generate an analyser from scratch and plot variables in the data files, using the framework as a basis.
  • This analyser is now setup such that it builds and begins to run with the current setup, designed to record the number of spectrometer candidates, but it fails at runtime due to an issue with a special trigger which is not specifically used in the code.
    • Solution: frameworks are not yet completely backwards compatible, I need to use the --old-specialtrigger flag after "build" to get this to work

Thesis document

I've collected all the relevant guideline documents and found a LATEX template for a generic "science and engineering" thesis. I've made a draft copy, added some basic information, style (both in the code and pdf) and some preliminary chapter titles. I'll mostly work on this in the background at this stage, such as a little while on shifts or during long periods of travel.

Analysis

Currently working on:

Added:
>
>
A test analyser, to understand how to generate an analyser from scratch and plot variables in the data files, using the framework as a basis.

Generating a Pnn sample from the Kaon code given to me by Giuseppe.

Thesis document

I've collected all the relevant guideline documents and found a LATEX template for a generic "science and engineering" thesis. I've made a draft copy, added some basic information, style (both in the code and pdf) and some preliminary chapter titles. I'll mostly work on this in the background at this stage, such as a little while on shifts or during long periods of travel.

Instuction file in the shared directory under: ./readme/analysisbuild.txt

<--

//Download and set up the NA62 Analysis framework

//Download

git clone ssh://git@gitlab.cern.ch:7999/NA62FW/na62fw.git //download the latest version from git to current directory, new directory will be called na62fw

//update the framework to the latest revision

git pull //from the na62fw directory

//then re-source and re-make both MC and reco

//Compile MC (required for setting up analysis)

cd na62fw/NA62MC/ //go to the MC directory

source scripts/env.sh //source the MC environment

make //compile ~takes a while~

//Compile Reco (required for setting up analysis)

cd na62fw/NA62Reconstruction/ //go to the reco directory

source scripts/env.sh //source the reco environment

make //compile ~takes a while~

//prepare the user directory

cd ../NA62Analysis/ //go to the analysis directory

export NA62MCSOURCE=~/na62fw/NA62MC //set the location of the MC

export NA62RECOSOURCE=~/na62fw/NA62Reconstruction //set the location of the Reco

source scripts/env.sh //source the analysis envirenment

./NA62AnalysisBuilder.py prepare ~/work/userDir/ //prepare your personal directory outside the framework to protect it from updates ~this step takes a while~

//From here everything must be done within userDir or it doesn't work, remember to source the env.sh as above

NA62AnalysisBuilder.py -h //to show documentation

NA62AnalysisBuilder.py build config //builds code file specified in config, don't need the build comand after first build

//run code with:

./exec_name -i input.root -o output.root //default output is outFile.root
