Purpose
- To discuss analysis tools, techniques, and results required as input for amplitude analyses and absolute cross section measurements.
- To actively work in groups on solving these problems, with well defined deliverables to come from the Workfest.
Workfest Tasks
The workfest tasks are split into two teams below. Team mascots and logos are up for debate... suggestions welcome.
R&D Team Tasks (Justin)
Comparison of track and shower efficiencies between data and MC (Simon, Alex A., Jon, Will M., Ahmed)
- Suggested studies: Missing particle in well-defined final states and measure efficiency of reconstruction
- Possible reactions for tracking effic.: Missing π or proton in γp → π^{+}π^{-}p, γp → π^{+}π^{-}π^{0}p, γp → π^{+}π^{-}π^{+}π^{-}p
- Possible reactions for shower effic.: Missing γ in γp → π^{+}π^{-}π^{0}p (FCAL), γp → π^{+}π^{-}π^{0}π^{0}p (BCAL?)
- Deliverable: Initial evaluation of efficiency vs kinematic variables (p, θ, φ) for data and MC
- Bonus points: Initial evaluation of resolution (measured - missing particle KinFit) for kinematic variables (p, θ, φ)
Comparison of kinematic fit χ^{2} between data and MC (Daniel, Alex B, Stuart, Mike M.)
- Suggested studies: Analysis of multiple final states with different constrains (P4, P4+vertex, P4+vertex with mass constraints)
- Possible reactions: γp → π^{+}π^{-}p (ρ and Δ^{++}), γp → K^{+}K^{-}p (φ and Λ(1520)), γp → π^{+}π^{-}π^{0}p (ω and η), γp → π^{0}γp (ω), γp → π^{+}π^{-}ηp (η'), γp → π^{0}π^{0}ηp (η')
- Previous studies: Alex Barnes [6]
- Deliverable: background subtracted χ^{2} and pull distributions for data and MC for charged, neutral, and mixed final states
- Bonus points: Prepare for tuning of MC parameters and/or covariance matrices to improve data/MC agreement
Validation Team Tasks (Sean)
Comparison of branching ratios between data and MC (Mark D., Tegan, Mahmoud)
- Suggested studies: Analysis of multiple decay modes for ω, η, and η' to measure ratio of branching ratios (with MC efficiency correction)
- Possible reactions: γp → γγp (η), γp → π^{+}π^{-}π^{0}p (ω and η), γp → π^{0}π^{0}π^{0}p (η), γp → π^{0}γp (ω), γp → π^{+}π^{-}ηp (η'), γp → π^{0}π^{0}ηp (η')
- Deliverable: background subtracted and efficiency corrected ω, η and η' yields
- Bonus points: investigate dependence on kinematic variables: E_{γ}, -t, etc.
Cross section evaluation for benchmark channel (Thomas, Simon)
- Suggested studies: Evaluate all ingredients of cross section: yield, efficiency, flux for benchmark channel
- Possible reactions: γp → π^{+}π^{-}p
- Deliverable: scripts to evaluate cross section for benchmark channel with a given version of software/calibrations
- Bonus points: implement in monitoring database
Event-by-event studies of benchmark channels (Sean, Ashley)
- Suggested studies: determine yields for pre-skimmed datasets of rare channels
- Possible reactions: J/ψ, Ξ, Δ^{++}
- Deliverable: scripts to monitor event yield and/or other observables with a given version of software/calibrations
- Bonus points: implement in monitoring database
Quantitative comparison of data and weighted phasespace MC for angular dependent analyses (Alex B., Elton, Matt, Carlos)
- Suggested studies: Fit vector meson SDME using current MC efficiency to compare weighted MC with data
- Possible reactions: γp → π^{+}π^{-}p (ρ), γp → K^{+}K^{-}p (φ)
- Deliverable: quantitative comparison (χ^{2}, Kolmogorov-Smirnov, etc.) of weighted phasespace MC angular distribution with data
- Bonus points: account for background (accidentals, etc.) in AmpTools, and statistical tests of fit parameters (toy MC, bootstrap, etc.)

Remote Participation
Remote participation will be possible, but the intention is to have a group of people actively working together at JLab. Thus remote participation will not be optimal.
