h2. Objectives Proposed during last meeting
6 1 Nicolas Ponieman
7 2 Nicolas Ponieman
# (P0) Check the values and precision of the parameters involved in Geant4, QSS and analytical solution are exactly the same. 
8 2 Nicolas Ponieman
# (P0) Plot the difference between the simulated velocity and the expected value (which is a parameter in the model).
9 2 Nicolas Ponieman
# (P1) For each simulation with a certain number of planes, calculate the error of the simulation.
10 2 Nicolas Ponieman
# (P3) Improve last meeting plots which compare Geant4, QSS3 and DOPRI5 performance.
11 1 Nicolas Ponieman
12 1 Nicolas Ponieman
  * Format issues (scales, line colors, etc.)
13 1 Nicolas Ponieman
  * Make statistic on many (10?) simulations for the points and add {simulationTime, simulationTimeError} for each number of planes.
14 1 Nicolas Ponieman
  * How does DOPRI5 find the intersection with the planes?
15 2 Nicolas Ponieman
# (P1) New Experiment: varying stepMax (from 0.1mm to 100mm) calculate the error in the first steps (in the position and in the velocity, also the error which is compared to epsilon in Geant4)
16 2 Nicolas Ponieman
# (P1) Repeat Experiment 1: debug what is the error in Geant4 stepper, which is to be compared with epsilon.
17 2 Nicolas Ponieman
# (P2) New Experiment: study impact of deltaInt parameter in Geant4 when changing the number of planes.
18 2 Nicolas Ponieman
# (P3) Make some experiments with a different magnetic field:
19 1 Nicolas Ponieman
B(x,y) = (B/R) sqrt( x*x + (y+R)*(y+R)) zhat    (where B= constant, zhat is the directional vector along the z axis, R is the radius of the circle)
20 1 Nicolas Ponieman
This field will keep the problem same as it is, but will give a deviation if the particle is off the circle
21 1 Nicolas Ponieman
(due to the error of the stepper).
22 2 Nicolas Ponieman
# (P3) Introduce discrete stochastic events simulating an artificial decay.
23 1 Nicolas Ponieman
# Introduce a different graphical representation (such as changing the color of the scatter points) for each different type of errors.
24 1 Nicolas Ponieman
25 1 Nicolas Ponieman
  * What are the different possible kind of errors?
26 2 Nicolas Ponieman
# (P1) Summarize all the information Nico learnt with Soon about the transportation chain in a slide, or a handwritten sketch.
