Colliders of Tomorrow Kick-off - Muon Collider

Sunrise - FNAL

Sunrise - FNAL

Karri Folan Di Petrillo (University of Chicago), Murtaza Safdari (Fermi National Accelerator Lab. (US)), Sridhara Dasu (University of Wisconsin Madison (US))


We'll meet roughly twice a month on Thursday afternoons Central time. An invited speaker will start the meeting with a 30 min talk on a future collider related topic followed by a Q&A. In the second half the meeting, we'll plan for tutorials and give students an opportunity to present recent work.

      Discussion Notes



      • Projects
        • What are the most important things to work on?
        • What skills are needed?
          • How much time does the person have to work on the project something meaningful? 
            • What weekly %-time is sufficient and for what duration?
        • Who is available to supervise?
        • Who is willing to provide a tutorial to get going?
        • What resources are needed?
          • All projects at this point are likely computing projects. Can we get started with "personal" or "local" resources? 
            • Snowmass machine is setup with IMCC provided software - how long are the machines available? Can people still get accounts?
            • (02 ... as needed) are available with IMCC provided software - feel free to ask for an account if needed.
            • at Fermilab, similar setup
      • Current projects (in Americas) - who's doing what?
        • Simone Pagan Griso, et al, LBL: Tracker reconstruction code development
        • Patrick Meade et al, Stony Brook: Physics simulations including detector acceptance (PGS?)
        • Daniel Ally, Grad Student, Tennessee: Tracker BIB occupancy and mitigation studies using full simulation
        • Shivani Lomte, Grad Student, Wisconsin: Calorimeter BIB studies using full simulation
        • Kenny Jia, UG Student, Wisconsin: Delphes HH study done with no-BIB study + Adding BIB to Delphes
        • Sergo Jindariani et al Fermilab:  occupancy/bandwidth/power estimates and readout/TDAQ design
        • Max Swiatlowski, Kate Pachal, TRIUMF: jet/MET reconstruction
        • Karri DiPetrillo, Ben Rosser et al, UChicago: detector design/acceptance  
        • ...
      • Future projects - who's interested?
        • Madgraph-Pythia-Delphes generated data with uproot+numpy+mathpltlib for analysis
