Reviewed the current structure of the F3/F4 projects.
Share and write resources to fully establish the workflow within each PI's group and between F3 and F4. There have been some changes from the initial proposal, so this will help establish clear communication and organization.
Start the discussion regarding the extension proposal, to be started by the end of 2023, as well as the deliverables for the phase 1.
Discussed the hadronic interaction models and the air shower simulation codes for the F3/F4 projects.
Discussed the RIVET tasks for the F3/F4 projects.
Discussed the workshop with hadronic interaction model developers.
When? Between October and December 2023.
Agreed on planning a full day in TUD to continue today’s discussions.
Wolfgang Rhode’s group: Mirco Hünnefeld@IceCube (F3.1) Johannes Albrecht’s group: x@LHCb (F3.2)
Karl-Heinz Kampert’s group: Chloé Gaudu@Auger (F4.1) Johannes Albrecht’s group: Julian Boelhauve@LHCb, Lars Kolk@LHCb (F4.2/F4.3) Kevin Kröninger’s group: Michael Windau (F4.n)
📄 Work plan written by Kevin Kröninger (F4.n)
2022: Finalization of the Monte-Carlo-fitting/tuning framework (PhD 1: Salvatore La Cagnina). Advantage: full control over the statistical model and interpretation (fitting rather than tuning) and possibility to add further parameters, constraints.
2023: Development of interfaces to all important generators in particle and astroparticle physics to generate MC samples (PhD 2: Michael Windau).
2023: Interpolation for observables as a function of the tuning parameters.
2024: Global fit to collider and astroparticle datasets.
2024: Extension of the fit to include further parameters, e.g. mass composition of cosmic rays. Application to global fits.
2025: Improvement of the tool, on-the-fly-generation MC data and parameterization-free models.
Johannes Albrecht’s group?
F4 is hadronic cross section, F3 is leptonic cross section
6 people within the 2 projects
4 PhD student: Julian Boelhauve (@LHCb) Jan Ellbracht (Luminosity@LHCb) Lars Kolk (Cross sections@LHCb + RIVET analyses) Mirco Hünnefeld (Cross section@IceCube)
Per project, meet together and establish link between each individual work (not only the SFB-PhDs but also all those involved in the project). Draft a short slideshow to present the everyone’s work and how they are linked.
