Step 0: To start the MINERvA masterclass measurement, you need the following information:

  • Name of your institute (usually the city)
  • Date in the Fermilab time zone (U.S. Central Time)
  • Data Group letter
  • Data mergedTuple number

Here are some useful resources to help you:

 

Step 1: Find your Institute, Data Group, and Spreadsheet in this table:

Date/time CT Institute (Data Group) Institute (Data Group) Institute (Data) Spreadsheet
Tue 01 Jan/00:00 North Pole Practice Team (P)     FNAL-01Jan2019
Thu 14 Mar/11:45 Rochester (A) Syracuse (E)   FNAL-14Mar2019
Fri 29 Mar 15:00 Barranquilla (B) Lead (C)   FNAL-29Mar2019
Fri 29 Mar 21:00 Qingdao (D)     FNAL-29Mar2019
Sat 06 Apr/14:00 Fairfax (D) Mayaguez (F, G) Knoxville (E) FNAL-06Apr2019A
Sat 06 Apr/16:00 Minneapolis (G) Fort Collins (E)   FNAL-06Apr2019B
Thu 11 Apr/09:00 Valencia (CD)     FNAL-11Apr2019
Thu 11 Apr/15:00 Batavia (F)     FNAL-11Apr2019

Step 2: Open your Data Group by chooing the letter and find your mergedTuple by its number.

 

Step 3: Choose your mergedTuple to open the ARACHNE Simple event display. It will start with your first Gate (also called an Entry; ummm, think of each one as an "Entry Gate" to data in a specific time range). By the way, the first Entry Gate is marked Entry 0.

 

Notes:

  1. There is some "fake data" in the beginning of the first mergedTuple for each Data Group in the spreadsheet. It is simply a placeholder. You may (should) write over this when you put your own data in.
  2. Please enter data only in the space provided: under "Muon" and "Proton". All other space is needed for other purposes. Columns A and B are meant to guide you to the correct lines. Column O and beyond contain formulae and charts that depend on what you enter in Colums C-N.
  3. Never enter anything but data into the spreadsheet. It is an open sheet set up for numerical analysis. Addition of non-numerical data can ruin the calculations and plots. Putting the wrong or right things in the wrong places can do the same. Please be careful: you are entrusted with a spreadsheet that you share with many other students who depend on it.                

 

Survey - do at the end!

Please take this student survey online after the videoconference. Each student should take this individually.
