Concerning the High Mass Tail on the Pion Peak

At the PWG meeting a few weeks ago, people expressed concerns about the high-mass tail from the pion peak that, for higher PT bins, is underestimated by the pion peak simulation.

Linearity Check in fixed ecalgeo.g

Abstract:  A bug in the EEMC geometry has been identified.  Lines such as "Material Air isvol=0" have an unexpected (read undocumented) behavior: they create a new materi
