Hadronic physics: calorimetry

Goals of WP-3a: Hadronic physics: calorimetry

  • Compare pion test-beam data collected with LHC calorimeters with G4/FLUKA/(G3).
  • Interact and iterate with G4 and FLUKA physics experts until required precision is achieved (see WP-1).
  • Return uncertainties and discrepancies to WP-1.
  • Understand strengths and weaknesses of G4 vs FLUKA.
  • Define one or more "optmised and recommended" physics lists and parameters (e.g. range cuts, etc.) for the various LHC detector types , as a result of technical performance vs physics performance.
  • Compare G4/FLUKA for simple benchmark geometries and materials and single incident particles of various energies.
