Robert Michaels HAMC Hall A Analysis Workshop 09 C HAMC = Hall A Monte Carlo ROOT / C++ Design Somewhat like SAMC & genercone For HRS only. Uses LeRose transfer functions. Abstract classes: Experiment, Physics, Target Used by HAPPEX-3, PVDIS, and PREX. A. Deur, V. SulkosyD. Lhuillier, K. Paschke, B. Moffit Contributors: Dustin McNulty, Diancheng Wang or matrices, or Guido fcn.

Robert Michaels HAMC Hall A Analysis Workshop 09 C Applications of HAMC Estimate Rates, Asymmetry, Sensitivity to Physics Design Collimator, Sieve, A_T detector. Design integrating detector & focus at detector Estimate sensitivities to beam parameters. Effects of radiative corrections, acceptance.

3
Robert Michaels HAMC Hall A Analysis Workshop 09 HAMC Events Generate beam Target position uniformly sampled (raster option) Fill solid angle uniformly Cross-section computed for rates and weighting Asymmetry computed (for Parity Expts) Energy losses (Brehms and dE/dX) with MC methods Multiple Scattering Transport to various points in HRS and Septum Acceptance cuts applied at apertures Event Analysis on accepted events.

Robert Michaels HAMC Hall A Analysis Workshop 09 Transport Polynomials from John LeRose (same)

5
Robert Michaels HAMC Hall A Analysis Workshop 09 Transport Polynomials (part 2) thanks, John LeRose Was used to check where electrons scrape; e.g. not in iron of dipole ?

7
Robert Michaels HAMC Hall A Analysis Workshop 09 Does HAMC work ? Yes, well enough for our goals. A problem: Radiative tail out to high loss is underestimated. Use effective target size to adjust (reduce) predicted rates.

8
Robert Michaels HAMC Hall A Analysis Workshop 09 Comparing HAMC to Real Data This was done for HAPPEX-1, HAPPEX-2, and a Lead test run

17
Robert Michaels HAMC Hall A Analysis Workshop 09 C Conclusions re: HAMC Reproduces data -- well enough. Has aided in several estimates and design efforts. Underestimates radiative losses -- maybe another MC better ? Restricted to HRS and single-arm at the moment. Might be easy to make a coincidence base class. The GOOD The BAD
