pkgs/Commissioning (NOvA offline)

The commissioning package currently contains several job modules. The original job module was "Cana.h/cxx/xml". This searches for sets of in-time hits inside an event and fits them to a straight line using the RLFit fitter (from the Tracking package). The module produces an ntuple and provides a root macro Cana.C to make several plots from this ntuple. This module is used to find neutrinos that occur in-time with the NuMI spill and make plots related to cosmic rays.

Technical description

In docdb, please see the following two talks: 5466: Commissioning Tools and 5452 Are we seeing neutrinos?

The Cana module uses several utilities from the Tracking package including the TimeSlice and RLFit routines. Those are described in the documents listed.
