TPC charge distribution fit to power law

For many years, we have used the following distribution to model space charge in the TPC, taken from StRoot/StDbUtilities/StMagUtilities.cxx:

 Status Update:  The FGT geometry and pedistal values are now being read from the common database.  Everything still works just fine.

Concerns for Run 12 pp510 SpaceCharge & GridLeak

Observations (by me unless otherwise noted):

A look at residuals in Run 12 pp510

Residuals of global tracks vs.

A look at recent sDCA vs. phi

 I took a look at recent sDCA distributions for good tracks (used in the SpaceCharge calibrations) vs. phi.

FGT Event Display Progress Report

Attached is an early view of the FGT event display.  This is showing every 10th strip.

They should all be in the proper location within the detector.
