Monte-Carlo setup:

  • Throwing one photon per event
  • Full STAR y2006h (latest EEMC-v6.2 and BEMC with LOW_EM cuts, rest of geometry from CVS)

HOWTO: Use pythia 6xx in ROOT

Root's TPythia6 interface allows the user to run pythia only simulations within root.  By default, root will load a given version of the pythia library.  At present it is version 6.4.16

FHC cosmic ray test status 2

    With the same setup, I just use the cross CTB trigger cut to see whether there's some construction damage to the group from column 4 to column 6

FHC pythia mini_bias simulation study 1

   For the Zoffset of the FHC is 948cm, I studied the events of the Lambda generated in the 2M pythia mini_bias simulation runs.
