Plenary talks
Plenary Talks

  • Sat

    • CC WG (AM 100 min)

      • Two talks?

    • MiniBooNE & NuMI (Arevalo, PM, 20 min)

    • Beam Syst WG (Kopp, 60 min)

Flux normalization mike kordosky 15 min
Flux Normalization (Mike Kordosky, 15 min)

ND/CC/FD: (Thursday, 13:15-15:15)

  • Charm not in NEUGEN

    • 10% up to 30% * muonic branching fraction

  • Non stat MC fluctuations many be important

  • Simple robust test looks good

  • Needs to think about systematics

  • Wants to turn this to an absolute measurement

  • DIS sample – larger effect

  • DIS cut, y cut

  • 10-20



Updated on neutrino energy vs batch peter shanahan
Updated on Neutrino Energy vs Batch  (Peter Shanahan)

  • Expect couple % effect for shifts between the birficated first bunch (Dharris)

  • Due to tail of kicker magnet for pbar extraction


Data selection in the fd related issues niki saoulidou
Data Selection in the FD & Related Issues (Niki Saoulidou)

  • Cuts from David (operations session)

  • Fakes spills (1/3 of seconds without a spill) – random samples

  • 1112, 122 reco’d, 6 out of time, out of 2e6 reco’d, 106 good events, 73 pass fiducial

  • Timing cut

  • Good agreement with 1112 scanned compared to the efficiency corrected numbers

  • Scan events

    • Scanned total confusing… 10 , 6 rock, clear up later

  • Characteristics

    • Some events early in time

    • GPS have 200ns timing error (now many sigma?)

    • Nice to understand (but not a real problem)

    • Early ND events ???

    • Some people see that… (pbar batch or before?)

    • Strange hit times? 40k ns late? 50> usec

    • Width of noise window , 500ns time cut for neutrons? 1hit/us randoms.

  • Examines variables

    • Low stats, things change due to blinding and oscillations

    • E/W asym not too bug.

    • Track PH looks a little different – issues? Prob not

  • ANN pid variables

    • Do spill and fake spills with the same reco


Fd event selection and data mc comparisons david petyt
FD event selection and data/MC comparisons (David Petyt)

  • Scan of events

    • 5.1e19

    • 1348 events

    • R18 – track and event vertex off – (cf Andy) – track fine but vertex at the shower

  • Fid optimization

    • 63.3% eff

    • No bg left

    • Same 63.6% in MC and data scan

    • 3.72m cut.

    • Estimate from out of time muons – 0.03muons/mo

  • Event variables in data and mC

    • Norm’d to area

    • B type plots show effects – others look pretty good

    • More cluster in data than MC

    • All the data shoulbe be used for non direvide data


Fd fiducial optimization and cr backgrounds andy culling
FD Fiducial Optimization and CR Backgrounds (Andy Culling)

  • Evtx ave of track vtx and shower vtx

  • Uptimization of fid vs stats and purity

  • Looked at backgrounds


Production of spectral data and mc predictions trish vahle
Production of Spectral Data and MC Predictions (Trish Vahle)

  • Update from last phone meeting

  • Compute discrepancies between ND MC and spectral data

  • Add in Zarko’s error envolope

  • Fix to pME, pHE target postions for the corrections.

    • Only after torgt fix

    • Smaller offsets

  • Deweighted show looked better but a problem

    • Still a data & mc problem – linearity

  • Excess low

    • Do the 1pe cut

  • Splitting cut on time before


Giving us fits jenny thomas
Giving Us Fits (Jenny Thomas)

  • Showed results for fit with Trish’s error function


ND/CC (Friday, 10:45-12:15)

  • Charm/Dimuon Analysis (Costas Andreopoulos, 15 min)
