Benchmark data / MC with stopping muons
I would like to see a study where many stopping muons at the FD are selected spread over a wide range of angles. Fit them, feed the kinematics into the MC and fit again. Then look at distributions of position chi^2, scattering chi^2, dEdx and see how well the data and MC match. Could in principle be repeated at the ND.

I've been working with a student on this. Will give update soon, but we have a module that creates a "Cosimic ray vertex" (point on wall at highest y based on Window Tracker) which can be used to seed clustering and BPF. We've also exercises a set of modules with find and fit stopped muons and then inputs those kinematics directly to the MC.
