Description

NOvA would like to more accurately model the NUMI spill time structure. Currently, interaction times are chosen at random in GENIEHelper::PackMCTruth, at the line...
double spillTime = fGlobalTimeOffset + fHelperRandom->Uniform()*fRandomTimeOffset;
We would like to request that this be encapsulated in a class that could be overridden in NOvASoft.
