Marlin and MarlinReco, a status report on recent software developments
Presented by Dr. Oliver WENDT on 11 Mar 2006 from 10:00 to 10:20
Session: Simulation and Reconstruction
Track: Simulation and Reconstruction
Marlin is a Modular Analysis and Reconstruction framework for detector simulation studies at the ILC. It is based on C++ and consists of software modules, called processors, which can be accessed and parametrised easily via a simple XML-based steering file. The native transient data format used for Marlin is LCIO. Marlin itself provides the framework only. All more specialised modules, for reconstruction in particular, are embedded in a package named MarlinReco. It includes a full set of modules, starting from processors for the digitisation of simulated data, full tracking as well as clustering, ending up with modules to create particle flow objects and perform simple analyses. This talk introduces the basic structure of Marlin and MarlinReco and reports on the status of the software, most recent developments and results.
