Dr Makoto Miura (Kamioka Observatory, ICRR, University of Tokyo)
Recently, we had several progresses in software development for Hyper-Kamiokande. In this talk, I will give a introduction about our activity.
Prof. Chris Walter (Duke University)
In this talk I will give an overview of the current use of WCSim for Hyper-K. I will explain our tuning and validation strategy, show current validation work by group members, and introduce the other talks in the session on geometry and calibration.
Dr Peter Gumplinger (TRIUMF)
This talk will describe the development of a parameterized geometry model of the Hyper-K detector for use in the WCSim simulation package. Both details of the geometry itself and the status of the implementation will be described.
Dr Alex Himmel (Duke University)
This talk will describe how we used comparisons between SKDetSim, the SuperK detector simulation, and a WCSim simulation of the SuperK geometry to tune the optical properties of the simulation, like reflectivity, scattering, and absorption. The goal was to tune the physical properties of the detector materials in order to improve the simulation accuracy in any geometry.
Dr Tarek Akiri (Duke University)
This talk will show a comparison between the reconstruction performances of WCSim in its Super-K configuration and those of the actual Super-K simulation called SKDetSim. This comparison was done after the tuning of WCSim to SKDetSim. This talk will show many critical distributions as vertex, direction and momentum resolutions as well as the performances for a T2K-like set of cuts for the nue...
Mr Shimpei Tobayama (University of British Columbia)
fiTQun is a new event reconstruction algorithm which has been developed for the Super-K detector. Using the charge and time information from the photomultiplier tubes in the detector, a likelihood function is constructed, which is then maximized to extract particle track parameters. The new algorithm has the potential to substantially improve particle identification performance as well as...
Prof. Francesca Di Lodovico (Queen Mary, University of London)
A computing strategy that is capable of taking advantage of new technologies (such as Cloud technologies) with minimal impact is needed. The strategy needs to provide a scalable architecture that minimizes the operational overhead. Moreover, long-term data access and preservation are becoming a growing concern worldwide. It has become a requirement in the EU and the US. Incorporating...
Prof. Kate Scholberg Scholberg (Duke University)
This talk will describe the Super-KAVE, a 3D immersive and interactive event display developed using Duke University's DiVE (Duke immersive Virtual Environment) facility. This event display could easily be adapted to Hyper-K or other experiments, and could be ported to similar facilities elsewhere.
