Analysis Support


Support for the detector performance and physics analysis activities of U.S. ATLAS is provided by three Analysis Support Centers (ASC), an Analysis Support Group (ASG) consisting of experts in the different areas of software required to perform a complete analysis and a series of Analysis Forums (AF) for discussion and interaction among physicists working in specific areas of detector performance and physics analysis.

Analysis Support Group

The ASG consists of a group of experts in the areas deemed important to enable US ATLAS physicists be successful in detector performance studies and physics analyses. These areas and contact persons are listed below.

If you have any question or problem with running or developing ATLAS software for your physics analysis or detector performance studies, please send email to the PhysicsAnalysisSupport HyperNews gateway. However, you will first need to become a member of the BNL HyperNews following the instructions at the RACF US ATLAS HyperNews page, then you will need to subscribe to the Physics Analysis Support forum.

Useful information about ATLAS software and computing in the US may be found via the US ATLAS Software Support wiki.

Analysis Forums

The AFs are an important part of the analysis support organization for US ATLAS. They are intended to provide a forum for informal discussions & assistance in areas of detector performance and physics analysis. These areas and AF conveners are listed below.

Analysis Support Centers

USAtlas analysis is supported by the L.A.B. composed of the three ASCs listed below:

  • L BNL for the Western region - LBLAsc
  • A NL for the Midwest region - ANLASC
  • B NL for the Eastern region - BnlAsc

These centers provide US ATLAS physicists with regional resources, tutorials, support, leadership and focal point for meetings. They provide infrastructure and analysis support in basic ATLAS software as well as expertise in certain areas of detector performance. More information about the role of the ASCs can be found in the following draft document: ASCrole_draft_14feb06.pdf.
