Source code of MAUS - the MICE Analysis User Software

2019-07-03T14:31:29Z (GMT) by The MICE Collaboration

MICE, the international Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment, is a project to design, construct, operate and test a cell of a muon ionisation cooling channel that may be used for a future Muon Collider or Neutrino Factory.

The object of the MICE experiment is to take a beam of muons created from protons from the ISIS accelerator hitting a titanium target and to show that it is possible to create a narrow intense beam, using detector techniques from particle physics.

MAUS is the software framework used by the MICE collaboration to provide Monte Carlo simulation of the beam and detector responses (via GEANT4), both offline and online data reconstruction, and various data analysis tools. It also provides a framework for collaborators to build their own offline data-analysis tools. MAUS is described in: R. Asfandiyarov et al.: “MAUS: the MICE Analysis User Software” Journal of Instrumentation 14 (4) T04005 (2019).
