LArSoft Workflows

LArSoft Workflows

The following topics are all based on Erica Snider’s Introduction to LArSoft – source material which also discusses the operation of single-phase TPCs.

LArSoft workflow overview

LArSoft provides tools to carry out simulation, reconstruction and analysis of LArTPC data.

Simulation steps

The simulation is a chain or series of steps each modeling a specific physical process.

Reconstruction steps

Reconstruction extracts physical information provided by the wire output signals. The space coordinates and energy deposited by the different particles are used to build a picture of the event.
