1 Sabah Salih The School of Physics & Astronomy The University of Manchester Manchester M13 9PL OS X within Particle Physics

2

3 OS X platform is increasing in popularity amongst developers and users on both the LHC experiments at CERN and the Tevatron at Fermilab Familiar Unix OS, no dual-booting, robust, stable Easy to manage OS X at a glance

4 Open source and Commercial applications used by Particle Physicists 1- AFS 2- Mathematica 3- GNU compilers: gcc 3.3 ( as options), others available (g from Fink, g95 available) 5- Ichat 8-Major language C, C++, Objective-C, Objective-C++, Java, Perl, Tcl, PHP, Python & Ruby 7- RPM

5 AFS

6 xmgrace (Graph plotting program) Latex and Lyx Fugu (sftp/scp client with graphical interface) Emacs both native to Aqua (the Mac windowing system) and X11 ImageMagick (not really physics, but useful for converting diagrams between.ps and.jpg etc) Other general scientific software

7 1- General a- CERN Library b- Root d- Geant4 e- LHAPDF Les Houches Accord Parton Density Function f- Hdcay g- Pythia h- ktjet (Code by Manchester) i- ExHuME (Monte Carlo Generator Code by Manchester) j-CPX+ (CPX SUSY code by Manchester) k-pomwig (Monte Carlo Generator Code by Manchester) l- HERWIG 2- Experiment specific See next page HEP Software:

8 LHC experiments and LCG show recent development activities on OS X Little effort by single individuals (even on spare time) ALICE: the whole offline software runs on OS X CMS: Iguana, Orca, initial port of external libraries ATLAS: CMT, Atlantis, Atlas distribution kit (based on CMT & Pacman), single packages of the Athena framework LHCb: Gaudi, Panoramix, Da Vinci LCG: SEAL, PI, externals libraries on Xserve OS X and the experiments

9 CLHEP, CERNLIB On Fink - (OpenSource) Geant4 From SLAC and on Fink WorkshopExercises/Prerequisities/MacOSX.html ROOT From ROOT (since long time) and on Fink

10 Used to simulate particle interactions through matter Written in C++ Software ported and tested on MacOS 10.3 with gcc 3.3 compiler –First-level porting for shared libraries in the last release 6.2 of the toolkit Binary libraries distributed on CD (created and maintained by SLAC Geant4 developers) –Libraries also available on FINK (maintained by user community) Fairly large (and growing) user community The platform will become soon officially supported Geant4 simulation toolkit
