The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) is a proof-of-principle experiment designed to demonstrate muon ionization cooling for the first time. MICE is currently on Step IV of its data taking programme, where transverse emittance reduction will be demonstrated. The MICE Analysis User Software (MAUS) is the reconstruction, simulation and analysis framework for the MICE experiment. MAUS is used for both offline data analysis and fast online data reconstruction and visualisation to serve MICE data taking.
This paper provides an introduction to the MAUS framework, describing the central Python and C++ based framework, code management procedure, the current performance for detector reconstruction and results from real data analysis of the recent MICE Step IV data. The ongoing development goals will also be described, including introducing multithreaded processing for the online detector reconstruction.
