5 ;general
6
7 * fixed GroupBy options in plot*.C macros
8
9 * only display KVA points (not the Tuorla points) in plotoptical.C
10
11 * all programs now allow to add resources to the ones from the resource
12 file or overwrite them from the command line. This can be done like this
13 ganymed --config=ganymed.rc --rc=Cut1.Param1:0.25 --rc=Cut1.Param3:5.5
14 if something seems to be wrong you can debug what the program is doing
15 using the option --debug-env=3
16
17 * increased the diversity of debug levels. That also means that with -v3
18 you get now less output, i.e. only the output which is important for
19 an analysis. To get more output which helps for debugging try 4, 5 and 6.
20
21 * fixed a problem in the task synchronizing the reading of the reports
22 and the data stream. The effect was that in some circumstances the last
23 events of some trees could have been skipped. Since this is only a
24 very tiny part of the data no severe effect to your analysis results
25 is expected (an exception might be very short, i.e. singel runs,
26 datasets).
27
28 * Dataset file now allow to include the sequence file directly within
29 the dataset file and also allow to exclude single runs from the dataset.
30 (for more details see Class reference of MDataSet)
31
32 * Sequence files now allow for excluding runs from the analysis
33 (for more details see Class reference of MSequence)
34
35 * added code to process the sum-trigger flag
36
37 * the histogram classes MH3 and MHn now support profile histograms
38
39 * the histogram classes MH3 and MHn now support labels at the axis
40
41 * the Random Forest Train-classes (MJTRain*) now store the used datasets
42 in the output file
43
44 * the MFMagicCuts have a new option to allow a linear area cut (for
45 special studies)
46
47 ;merpp
48
49 * Implemented cc file version 2008-20-02/0
50
51 ;callisto
52
53 * in the pedestal processing now at least 50 processed events are
54 required for succeeding.
55
56 * the signal and calib files now contain also the sequence information
57
58 * the two MPedestalCam in the calib file now have proper names
59 to distinguish them from each other (MPedestalCam, MPedestalExtracted)
60
61 * Both pedestal cams now conatain the number of events processed
62
63 * In Mars V2.0 the extraction of the fundamental pedestal was broken,
64 i.e. for the extraction of the calibration pulses basically the average
65 over all events of the first slice instead of all slices was used.
66 Since pedestal and calibration constants are continously recalculated
67 this only effected the very first events of every sequence.
68
69 * For the extraction of the position of the maximum sample now the
70 extraction range is set automatically to the extraction window,
71 before the whole accessible range was used.
72
73 * If the number of samples in the events and the number of samples
74 in the run-header disagrees now an error is raised (this can
75 happen in not well simulated Monte Carlo files)
76
77 * In the case of MUX-data pedestal events with the lvl1 trigger flag
78 could survive into the pedestal calculation -- fixed.
79
80 * Tab "TrigPat" added showing the distribution of the trigger pattern
81 as found in the run-files (normalized with the run length)
82
83 ;star
84
85 * the star file now contains also the sequence information
86
87 ;ganymed/sponde
88
89 * Now data points are even shown correctly if they have error bars larger
90 than one sigma. Points with null or negative significances are omitted.
91
92 * DrawNicePlot now allows to set a projection range
93
94 ;sponde
95
96 * fixed resource files ('''Spectrum''' instead of '''MJSpectrum''')
97
98 * a new option "--force-runtime" is available. In case of very short
99 datasets (for light-curves) which are in the order of a few
100 minutes the calculated effective on-time is not very acurate because
101 it is quantizised in th eorder of a minute. Therefore you can switch
102 to using the real run-time instead (remakrt: this ignores any
103 dead-time!)
104
105 * a more analytical way is used to "fill" Monte Carlos into regions
106 of impact parameters which have not been simulated because the
107 trigger efficiency is assumed to be 0.
108
109 * estimated sensitivity curves for hi and lo zenith angles are shown
110 scaled to the correct observation time and collection area
111
112 * the Monte Carlo events after cuts are now written to the output file
113 if an output file given
114

117 *** Version 2.0 (2007/09/03)
118
119 - database: the position used for the pulse pos check was missing
120 in the callisto output and could thus not be filled into the DB.
121 Also the old values seemed not exactly the PulsePos used for
122 teh check.
123
124 - general: Resource file now allow an Include-Resource, i.e. you can
125 read a resource file with default settings, include it in your
126 resource file and overwrite the settings in your file. More than
127 one include file is allowed. Inclusions can be iterative.
128 Include: mydefaults.rc yourdefaults.rc
129 The resources in the first file have higher priority than the
130 second file.
131
132 - general: Now the output files (calib*.root, etc) also contain the
133 resource file (to check it open it in the TBrowser and choose Print()
134 from the context menu)
135
136 - general: Dataset files now allow to overwrite the default path
137 to search for sequence and data files. Note, that the program
138 option and individual resources will overwrite it. For example:
139 SequencePath: /magic/montecarlo/sequences
140 DataPath: /magic/montecarlo/star
141
142 - general: Fixed a problem with variables in MDataPhrase. It seems
143 that only optimdisp (didn't work) was effected.
144
145 - general: Some improvements to the optim and train processing. For
146 example the ststud window now got a proper title.
147
148 - general: The "Status Display: " was removed from the window title
149 within an Eventloop.
150
151 - general: added a new flexible histogram-class (MHn) which can be used
152 for example in testing after optimizations or training to produce
153 user defined histograms.
154
155 - general: The Random Forest now allows attaching an evaluation
156 function which is applied to its output. This allows to train
157 on whatever you like (eg. train on log10(energy), but return
158 energy)
159
160 - general: The Random Forest training of energy (trainenergy.c) and
161 disp (traindisp.C) has been improved by more graphical output to
162 judge the result.
163
164 - general: The training of energy (trainenergy.C) has been improved
165 a lot by training on a different quantity than energy. It gives
166 a result which is highly independant of the source spectrum
167 and shows lower bias than all other options.
168
169 - general: Dataset files are allowed to contain collections of
170 datasets. For more details see the class reference of MDataSet.
171
172 - general: The default WobbleMode in a datset file now (if not
173 overwritten) is "auto", i.e. wobble mode is set if the dataset
174 doesn't contain off-sequences.
175
176 - merpp: Merpp can read file format version 9 now. Please realize
177 that for file format version 9 the extraction range is different
178 and must be set to 0/49 instead of 15/64 in callisto_mux.rc until
179 the first and last 15 slices have been removed from all MUX data.
180
181 - mars: Similar to writing movies you can now select events which
182 should be displayed in your display. Therefore add the following
183 lines to your mars.rc:
184 MFEvtNumber.FileName: ganymed00223552.root
185 MFEvtNumber.Selector: ThetaSquared.fVal<0.04 && DataType.fVal>0.5
186 The input file can be a ganymed-file after (ganymed*.root) or
187 before (ganymed*-summary.root) file. For example to select all events
188 from your on sample after cuts (excluding the ThetaSq cut) use
189 MFEvtNumber.Selector: DataType.fVal>0.5
190 To show all events from your on-sample after quality cuts
191 use the summary file instead.
192
193 - mars: new ways to call mars are implemented. Instead
194 of calling
195 mars filename.root
196 you can now also use
197 mars sequence.txt
198 or
199 mars sequence.txt inputpath
200 or replace sequence.txt by the sequence number if the default
201 sequence file should be used.
202
203 - mars: The default size has been increased
204
205 - mars: There are two new heckboxes which allow to switch off
206 the calculated image parameters
207
208 - callisto: was broken for MCs... fixed.
209
210 - callisto: improved calculation of spline coefficients a lot. This
211 leads to a further improvement of the event rate calibrating MUX
212 data of about 15% (175evt/s instead of 150evt/s)
213
214 - callisto: finally the raw data we read is now real 16bit (with
215 10bit precision) for MUX data and not a stripped 8bit number
216 anymore. Due to scaling of the numbers (without precision loss
217 into an [0-256[ range, the final numbers for pedestal, pedestalrms
218 and extacted signal don't change. However, at all places where
219 raw data is directly accessed (eg. saturation and variation
220 limits in the signal- and pedestal-extraction) the numbers
221 refer still to the data's 16bit range.
222
223 - callisto: The maximum arrival time difference used in the bad
224 pixel treatment is now in units of nanoseconds, which leads to 3.0ns
225 for both, old FADC and MUX-FADC, data.
226
227 - callisto: Be aware that callisto is now calibrating the arrival time
228 in nanoseconds rather than time slices. Also all following tasks
229 have been changed to assume ns units now. If you star data
230 calibrated with an older version it might be necessary to adapt
231 some timimng parameters (Muon Analysis and MFSoftwareTrigger)
232 to obtain optimal results. The plot in the PulsePos tab
233 will now be in ns, too. This might also mean that the Muon
234 analysis in star might not work as perfect as expected as long
235 as old files read in.
236
237 - callisto: The calibration constants of earlier updates got lost
238 somehow. All constants have been updated.
239
240 - star: The PSF is now determined from the profile of the ArcWidth
241 instead of arcwidth/radius. The old way gave to much weight
242 to the bins with low statistics. The reference lines have been
243 updated.
244
245 - star: For speed reasons events suitable for the muon analysis
246 are now also preselected by fConcCOG<0.1 which seems to be a very
247 good preselector for muons.
248
249 - star: is now calculating a new timing parameter the Slope along
250 the major and minor axis of the shower. Therefore a numerical
251 solution of a line-fit is used. To use MHillasExt.fSlopeLong
252 and MHillasExt.fSlopeTrans don't forget to multiply it with
253 the sign stored in MHillasSrc.fCosDeltaAlpha as usual.
254
255 - star: The parameters fInnerSize, fInnerLeakage1 and fInnerLeakage2
256 have been removed from MNewImagePar. They have never been good for
257 anything.
258
259 - star: Implemented a new recursive algorithm which is supposed to be
260 faster. Also implemented new cleaning oiptions, which are:
261 + CleanLevel0:
262 The cleaning level above single core pixels can be kept
263 + KeepIsolatedPixels:
264 Define whether single core pixels should be kept
265 + TimeLevel1:
266 The coincidence window in nanoseconds to single used neighbors
267 + TimeLevel2:
268 The coincidence window in nanoseconds to two used neighbors
269 + PostCleanType:
270 MOde in which a time dependent post cleaning should be applied
271 0: No post cleaning
272 1: Require for each used pixels at least one used neighbor
273 within a time-window of CleanLevel1
274 2: Require for each used pixels at least two used neighbor
275 within a time-window of CleanLevel2
276 3: Require first two and second one used neighbor
277 within a time-window of CleanLevel1 and fCleanLevel2
278 respectively
279 + RecoverIsolatedPixels:
280 - recoveres isolated core pixels if they have a used neighbor
281
282 - mars/star: The new default cleaning is:
283 + CleanLevel1: 6.0
284 + CleanLevel2: 3.0
285 + CleanTime1: 1.75
286 + CleanTime2: 1.75
287 + PostCleanType: 3
288
289 - star/ganymed: The old spark-cuts have been replaced by new ones.
290 These new spark cuts have been cross checked with the sequences
291 84720 (before splitter), 101041 (after splitter) and 223539 (new
292 FADCs). In all cases they seperate pretty well, but of course not
293 perfect. Monte Carlos have suggested to tighten the cuts a little
294 bit further at low sizes. This has been done.
295
296 - ganymed: IMPORTANT - The spark cuts have been changed to match
297 all available data more or less well. This might mean that for
298 YOUR data there are still sparks visible.
299 Whenever you do an analysis you have to make sure that NO sparks
300 survive your cuts!
301
302 - ganymed: The old hadronness and size cuts have gotten new indices
303 (10, 11). The old indices 8 and 9 now mean an additional condition
304 for ghostbusting based on the formula (dist-c[9])*c[8]-slope.
305 If you want to switch off this cut just move the line far away enough,
306 e.g. by setting c[9] to -500. Please update your ganymed.rc files
307 accordingly!
308 The unit of c[9] is deg. It is the dist at which your cut will
309 cross the slope==0. The unit of the slope is ns/deg. So if
310 you readin files calibrated with an older Mars-version you
311 have to adapt the default value for c[9] to the FADCs:
312 - Multiply by two for the MUX FADCs (run number > 200.000)
313 - Multiply by 0.3 for the Siegen FADCs (run number < 200.000)
314 - Multiply by 42 for the meaning of life (run number = 200.000)
315
316 - ganymed: The old Cut0 is now called CutQ and is calculated before
317 the source position is caluclated. If you need a quality cut
318 including source dependant data (be very carefull with this!)
319 you have to use Cut0 instead.
320
321 - ganymed: now properly supports three off regions in wobble mode.
322 It will be the default from now on in ganymed_wobble.rc. To change
323 the number of off-regions use
324 NumOffSourcePositions: 1
325 in your ganymed.rc. Also by default no off-theta cut will be done
326 anymore so that you will get a background level higher than the
327 signal level in your ThetaSq plot for ThetaSq>0.2.
328 Due to this be carefull changing the scaling mode away from
329 "None". You will underestimate your signal if your scale interval
330 is not properly set.
331 (Rem: ThetaSqN is no longer needed)
332
333 - ganymed: is now storing the events of all (on- and off-)
334 source positions even in the case of more than one off-source
335 position. This should allow sponde to work properly and the
336 energy estimation is done correctly in all cases (without any
337 "nearest position" trick)
338
339 - ganymed: From 85340 (19.3.2006) on a real starguider calibration
340 with a real pointing model for the starguider is done, calibrated
341 with more than thousand tpoints taken from this date on.
342
343 - ganymed: was broken for Wobble-MCs... fixed.
344
345 - ganymed: The default cuts (MFMagicCuts) and the disp-parametrization
346 has changed. Note that your old ganymed.rc will be incompatible
347 with the new algorithms! Please check the ganymed.rc files and
348 the class description of MFMagicCuts for more information.
349 It is recommended at the moment to use identical Disp-Parametrizations
350 for on/off- and wobble-mode. If cuts are optimized only
351 the Area-Cut (parameters 2,3,4) and the theta-sq cut (parameter 1)
352 should be optimized. All other values should be kept as they are.
353 If you want to do an anylsis without timing a parameters, you can
354 switch off the timing cuts by seeting parameter 7 to a very small
355 value (eg. -99). To remove the slope parameter from the disp
356 paremtrization set parameter 8 to 0.
357
358 - ganymed: The distribution of observation time versus zenith
359 angle is now shown for off- AND on-data.
360
361 - ganymed: The contents of the source position plot are no longer
362 averaged, thus a lot of (fake) events between the two wobble
363 positions have disappeared.
364
365 - ganymed: There is a new tab "CutT" it contains the VsSize plots
366 with the CutT, whihc is defined in ganymed.rc, applied. It
367 is resonable to use your theta-cut for it, to see if there is
368 something strange (sparks!) in your signal-region.
369
370 - ganymed: To choose a dataset from a collection in a dataset file
371 use the new command line option "--dataset=12345"
372
373 - optim, sponde: should now properly support three off-regions.
374 Just produce your ganymed summary files with three off-regions.
375 optim and sponde will automatically get all off events from
376 all off-regions from this file. Please do not forget to
377 set the scaling in optimwobble.C properly:
378 fit.SetScaleUser(1./3);
379 it is not yet read in automatically (will follow soon).
380 In the case of fixed Scale you can also use
381 cuts.SetThetaCut(MFMagicCuts::kOn);
382 no off-cut needed.
383 Be carefull in case of three off-regions when switching on
384 scale mode. Make sure that the scale interval is set correctly.
385
386 - sponde: sponde.rc and sponde_onoff.rc are now idetical
387
388 - sponde: the resouce files have been rewritten with a lot of
389 comments and a well working parametrization for an energy estimator
390
391 - sponde: In the estimated energy versus monte carlo energy plot the
392 contents where exchanged.... fixed.
393
394 - sponde: the so called "accurate"-mode has been removed. It didn't
395 give any improvement in accuracy, only decreased execution speed.
396
397 - sponde: the so called "simple"-mode has been removed. It didn't
398 give any improvement in simple.
399
400 - sponde: the so called "refill"-mode has been removed. It was anyhow
401 not implemented.
402
403 - sponde: now checks whether the theta distribution of your on-data
404 and the theta-distribution of your Monte Carlo sample (after
405 weighting) fits. If it doesn't fit properly (eg. the Monte Carlo
406 sample is incomplete) execution is stopped. Execution can be forced
407 using the new option --force-theta. Use this option with care!
408
409 - sponde: Proper collection areas can now be constructed also from
410 Monte Carlo samples generated with different maximum impact
411 parameters. Note that in previous version you neither got
412 a warning or failure, nor was there any obvious sign that the
413 collection area was overestimated due to usage of files with
414 different maximum impact parameters.
415
416 - sponde: If MC files with different lower energy limits are used
417 the primary MC spectrum is artificially completed down to the
418 lowest energy used at all. WARNING: that this gives correct
419 collection areas ONLY if none of the events in this region would
420 survive your cuts at all.
421
422 - sponde: the output file now contains more information about
423 the spectrum (eg. the full 2D collection area histogram).
424 Note, that this information can only be written to the file
425 if it is stored automatically via command line argument.
426 If you only store the status display from within the display
427 the information is lost.
428
429 - sponde: added a new tab "Disp". It shows the residual of the disp
430 (Disp-Dist) versus several parameters and it is meant to judge the
431 quality of the disp estimator. In the ideal case the residual is zero
432 and doesn't depend on any variable. The tab is displayed after
433 CutQ and Cut0.
434
435 - sponde: added a new tab "Energy". It shows the residual of the
436 energy (lg(estimated energy)-lg(monte carlo energy)) versus
437 several parameters and it is meant to judge the quality of the
438 energy estimator. In the ideal case the residual is zero
439 and doesn't depend on any variable. In reality even a good estimator
440 can show residuals versus Monte Carlo energy. The tab is displayed
441 after all cuts.
442
443 - sponde: added a new tab "EventDist" showing the unweighted real
444 absolute number of events of your sample after cuts. This tells
445 you how many events with this energy you had in your MC files.
446 The same information you get from the error bars of the weighted
447 histograms, but this is less intuitive.
448
449 - sponde: The spectrum plots now show the crab- and 1553-spectrum
450 for comparison. It is not meant to show these curves in
451 publications, they are only for production.
452
453 - sponde: The OriginalMC tree with the events produced by corsika
454 is now processed only once
455
456 - sponde: Finally fixed most annoying bug, which has effected the
457 last bin of the collection area. It was the problem that binnings
458 of root histograms are from 1 to n (included) but there was a C-like
459 loop in sponde from 0 to n (excluded). Now the loop also includes
460 correctly under- and overflow-bins. The worse thing with this is,
461 that for the events in the highest bin not only the bin-content
462 was wrong, but also the weights applied to these events, which could
463 in pricipal effect also other parts of the distribution (eg. due
464 to energy estimation). Fortunately it effected only a few events
465 in most cases.
466
467
468
469 *** Version 1.2 (2007/05/14)
470
471 - database: The database now has two new values Unsuitable50 and
472 Unsuitable01. They express the number of pixels which are
473 unsuitable for more than 50%, respectively more than 1%, of
474 all calibrated event. It is a more accurate number than the
475 previously used numbers, because they only take the first
476 calibration (ignoring the interleaved calibrations) into account.
477
478 - database: The database now has two other new values UnsuitableMax and
479 DeadMax. They express the maximum number of pixels which were
480 unsuitable, respectively dead, during the sequence. Because
481 of high pedestal rms (cars passing) a few events with very high
482 numbers of unsuitable pixels can happen. Not to suffer from this
483 effect we don't take the highest 0.1% of the numbers into account.
484
485 - general: fixed a bug which caused callisto and star to stop working
486 properly because the callisto output was currupted
487
488 - general: a script called scripts/makemovie has been added which
489 simplified the process of producing several movies from a single
490 sequence with different setup.
491
492 - callisto: Some more code cleanup. Started to remove old obsolete
493 code from cvs.
494
495 - callisto: The extraction of the pedestal with the extractor was
496 not random. It seems that extracting at one position is still biased
497 (for example in the first or last slices we could still suffer from
498 switching noise) Now it is completely random.
499
500 - callisto: In MPedCalcPedRun (which is the pedestal extraction from
501 pedestal files) individual pixels could be skipped due to high
502 variations. This was already the case for the pedestal extraction
503 from the lo-gains since the beginning and properly handled
504 there, but was introduced in the extraction from the pedestal files
505 a while ago. To calculate the average value it was still divided
506 by the number of events procesed not by the number of summands
507 really summed. This let to a pedestal which was a tiny amount too
508 small (for a few piels in the order of 0.1%). This led to an slightly
509 positive offset of the randomly extracted pedestal for a few pixels.
510 I doubt that this has a big effect on the result, because the effect
511 on the individual numbers is quite small. Due to this it is suggested
512 that you rerun your calibration to make sure you are without any
513 avoidable bias.
514
515 - callisto: the ArrTimeRmsLimit is now is a check of the deviation from
516 the median rms of the absolute arrival time and expressed in significance
517 levels. This replaces the old meaning of an abolute upper limit. An
518 absolute upper limit doesn't make much sense, because in our data
519 all arrival times are shifted at the same time (in fact it might be
520 a shift of the artificial trigger w.r.t. to the light flash).
521
522 - callisto: Added a new tab "BadPixTm" which shows the time evolution
523 of the number of unsuitable pixels over the whole sequence. This
524 is usefull mainly to judge if an intermediate calibration had
525 problems.
526
527 - callisto: Added a new tab "DeadPixTm" which shows the time evolution
528 of the number of dead pixels over the whole sequence. Dead pixels
529 in this context are unmapped pixels, i.e. pixels which could not
530 be interpolated, and thus are ignored in the further analysis.
531
532 - callisto: It is now possible to use the position of the maximum
533 of the spline as arrival time instead of the leading edge even
534 when using the integral for the signal. Therefor set the extraction
535 type to kIntegralRel ("IntegralRelative") and the relative height
536 ("HeightTm") to -1:
537 MJPedestalC1.ExtractSignal.ExtractionType: IntegralRelative
538 MJPedestalC1.ExtractSignal.HeightTm: -1
539
540
541
542
543 *** Version 1.1 (2007/04/27)
544
545 - general: The new class MGeomCamDwarf contains the camera geometry
546 for our prefered Dwarf camera and can be used to create general
547 geometries of roundish or hexagonal cameras.
548
549 - mars: The default cleaning is now abolute 8.5/4.0.
550
551 - mars: The resource file mars.rc now contains examples for MUX data
552
553 - merpp: Implemented file format version 8 (MUX FADC data). The 16-bit
554 data containing only 10-bit information is still cooked down to
555 8-bit, by cutting away the lowest 8-bit.
556
557 - merpp: When reading raw data the data is now stored in a single
558 array. The lo-gain array is obsolete. The interface stays the same.
559
560 - callisto: To process the new MUX data use the resource file
561 callisto_mux.rc
562
563 - callisto: The -root and -raw options to read merpped raw data have
564 been removed
565
566 - callisto: If the -mc option is given the sequence-name can now be
567 replaced by the MC sequence number
568
569 - callisto: If the sequence file contains "MonteCarlo: Yes" the
570 -mc option can now be omitted
571
572 - callisto: Started further simplification by removing obsolete
573 dependancies on MCalibIntensity*Cams.
574
575 - callisto: removed unsused intensity calibration from MJCalibration
576 for further simplification
577
578 - callisto: for simplification removed references to
579 MBadPixelsIntensityCam, MCalibrationIntensityQECam,
580 MCalibrationIntensityRelTimeCam, MCalibrationIntensityTestCam,
581 MCalibrationIntensityChargeCam, and MCalibrationIntensityBlindCam
582 (this should at minimum change nothing at all, and at maximum
583 improve thing if these containers where somewhere not handled
584 properly)
585
586 - callisto: Added the option to write an event movie. Please use
587 this option with care (huge files) but exessively to understand
588 our events. For further documentation please refer to the
589 IACT wiki
590 (currently at http://www.astro.uni.wuerzburg.de/mediawiki-1.9.0)
591
592 - callisto: Improved binning for the pulse position check histogram
593
594 - callisto: The code calculating the pulse position checknow takes
595 the pedestal into account
596
597 - callisto: The arrival time is now stored with full precision this
598 helps to get rid of artefacts in histograms. For the signal this
599 is not necessray because it is displayed in log-scale anyhow
600
601 - callisto: Fixed a problem with internal exclusions. Pixels which
602 have once been marked as unsuitable didn't get the necessary
603 histograms filled anymore to be rechecked with each interleaved
604 calibration.
605
606 - callisto: The relative arrival time resolution (the rms of the
607 relative arrival time offset) is now checked against its
608 median and the median deviation, instead of the average
609 plus an absolute offset.
610
611 - callisto: The relative arrival time offset is now calculated
612 w.r.t. its median not w.r.t. to an artificial reference pixel.
613
614 - callisto: The relative time calibration now marks pixels with
615 outlaying offset as unsuitable
616
617 - callisto: The interleaved relative time calibration has been switched
618 on. The advantage is that pixels which are marked as outliers
619 now can recover. An improvement over time is not expected, because
620 the relative time calibration seems stable.
621
622 - ganymed: If the dataset file containes "MonteCarlo: Yes" the "-mc"
623 option can now be omitted.
624
625 - ganymed: If either the dataset file containes "MonteCarlo: Yes"
626 or the option "-mc" is specified as default the monte carlo datacenter
627 paths (/magic/montecarlo/...) are used if not overwritten in the
628 dataset file.
629
630 - ganymed: The output files now contain run- and event-number for all
631 events, accessible as RunNumber.fVal and EvtNumber.fVal
632
633 - ganymed: Added a plot showing the source position in the camera also
634 for wobble mode
635
636 - ganymed: In addition to the existing task which can be setup to
637 be executed after Cut1 a final task called "EstimateEnergy"
638 has been added, executed before writing the final output
639 (ganymed00000000.root). The task setup in all three cases
640 can be choosen individually. (For all three(!) cases you
641 can for example choose MRanForestCalc. For examples see all
642 sponde*.rc and all ganymed*rc)
643
644 - ganymed: If a container "MEstimatedEnergy" is found in the
645 parameter list (eg. because it was setup by MEstimateEnergy)
646 it will be written to the output file.
647
648
649
650 *** Version 1.0 (2007/02/16)
651
652 - database: Website to plot values from the database has been added.
653
654 - database: The rate of spark events as found by star is now kept
655 and the rate after cleaning is now with spark events subtracted
656
657 - general: The changes to the interpretation of phrases lead to
658 a problem with the access of MHMatrix objects (eg. "M[0]")... fixed.
659
660 - general: Added example files how you can create your own calendar
661 (eg. as christmas present) with Mars. Just run
662 root macros/tutorials/calendar.C
663
664 - general: Added a possibility to display grouped data in the plotdb.C
665 macro (and similar macros). This allows to plot hourly, nightly,
666 weekly, monthly and yearly averages.
667 For more details see the plotall function of the macro
668
669 - general: fixed the error display of the camera display. It showed
670 wrong results.
671
672 - general: fixed a memory leak when reading many MStatusDisplays
673
674 - general: added a macro (macros/tutorials/mirrordelay.C) plotting the delay
675 between a spherical and a parabolic mirror
676
677 - callisto: We have a new pulse position check which takes the properties
678 of the extractor automatically into account. So no need to set
679 ExtractWinLeft/Right anymore. Again a check for pulses too much to the
680 left is done. If possible the lo-gain extraction start and hi-gain
681 extraction end is changed accordingly. If no proper extraction range
682 can be set (hi-gain too much to the left) an error is raised.
683
684 - callisto: New swapped pixels have been found and corrected
685
686 - callisto: Redone the signal extraction this includes:
687 + Unified the algorithms to extract the pedestal for all pedestal
688 extractions done
689 + Unification of hi- and lo-gain into one array
690 + Unification of hi- and lo-gain extraction for Spline and
691 Digital Filter (means now exactly the same algorithm is used,
692 not a copy-and-pasted one)
693 + Store pedestal subtracted data in a common place
694 + Improved extraction algorithms. If the algorithms search a
695 maximum but don't find one they don't return the maximum anymore
696 + Improved the extraction such that a information for signal
697 and time which is consistent is returned
698 + replaced the numerical spline with a (not slower) analytical
699 solution
700 + Lowered the saturation limit from 250 to 245 to make sure that
701 we are far away in all pixels from problems with the clock-noise
702 + The start of the lo-gain extraction is calculated from the hi-gain
703 arrival time. In case of saturation an estimation is used.
704 + the hi-gain window was extended to slice 16. This allows extraction
705 of very late pulses in single pixels or of huge hadron showers.
706 + Now uses the lo-gain extraction range for pedestal extraction,
707 not the hi-gain range in the lo-gain
708
709 - callisto: New hi-/lo-gain calibration constants have been produced
710 for all periods from the statistic of the whole period. They are
711 now used automatically depending on the periods. The old constants
712 where deviation in avarega about 2%-3%. The constants are very
713 stable from period to period (<<1%) except for exchanged channels.
714 In a few cases the constants used so far were off by 1%-2% (maybe
715 temperature effects?)
716
717 - callisto: To gain obsolete space we do not write the
718 MPedestalFundamental anymore. Also calibration and bad pixel
719 treatment is not done for it anymore because it has never been used.
720
721 - callisto: Fixed a bug in the seuqence handling which caused the
722 light condition to be ignored
723
724 - star: Added two new tabs "Sparkless" and "Sparks" these tabs show
725 basically the same as "Cleaned" but the distribution devided into
726 the events fullfilling a spark cut or being rejected by it.
727 This cut can be changed from star.rc (see example inside) by
728 the "SparkCut" directive
729
730 - star: Star displays now the average individual pixel-rate (IPR) versus
731 time and the average discriminator threshold (DT) of all pixels.
732
733 - optim: fixed a problem with the optim-macros which was due to a bug
734 in the new phrase parsing
735
736 - ganymed: To get a nice FalseSource plot (instead of the all-information
737 debug plot displayed as a standard plot) use the context menu
738 somewhere between the two upper plots, click on "DrawNicePlot"
739 and enjoy the result. (It is the same context menu which contains
740 the other options)
741 PLEASE ALWAYS USE THIS PLOT FOR ANY KIND OF PRESENTATION!
742
743 - ganymed/optim/train: The cut program, trainings- and optimization
744 macros could run with less files found than expected from the
745 sequence-files. No the execution is stopped in this case.
746
747 - ganymed: now stores the dataset in the output file with all information
748 contained (as sequence number, sequence path, data path) so that the
749 used dataset file can be recreated complete from the output
750
751 - sponde: now also allows the uasge of random forest
752
753 - sponde: added a plot showing the cut efficiency
754
755 - sponde: Using root versions < 5.13/04 still resulted in wrong binomial
756 errors (eg. effecting the collection area) because the errors of the
757 two histograms were swapped in the calculation, which makes a difference
758 in the case the histograms contains weighted events. Aditionally the
759 totalarea was incorrectly taken into account, which results in too small
760 errors, which makes a difference at low statistics were the errors
761 or the collection area dominate.
762
763
764
765 *** Version 0.10.3 (2006/10/23)
766
767 - database: Implemented ObservationMode flag in websites.
768
769 - database: For sequences there is now also the stoptime available on the
770 websites.
771
772 - database: Removed ManuallyChanged flag from sequence-info websites,
773 as it is not needed anymore with the new sequence building algorithm.
774
775 - general: MRolke.[cc,h]: Modification of TRolke from root_v5.12.00b.
776 Class for calculation of confidence intervals (upper limits).
777 Use model 3 or 4 for upper limit calculation for MAGIC observations.
778 Please read the class instruction of TRolke for more information.
779
780 - general: The programs now return 0xfe if the requested resource file
781 doesn't exist.
782
783 - general: Errors comming from root itself are now not output to
784 stderr anymore but to our default (colored) log-stream.
785
786 - general: Changed the interface to TFormula such that now everything
787 is parsed by TFormula, which should allow to use phrases even
788 without paranthesis correctly parsed.
789
790 - callisto: replaced the AdHoc number of effective integration slices
791 in the digital filter by an average of the correct number, averaged
792 over all possible set of weights. This also gives correct numbers
793 for the lo-gains which were totally wrong before.
794
795 - callisto: drastically reduced memory consumption by not storing
796 all intermediate calibration results in memory anymore (we might
797 write them into a file in the future)
798
799 - ganymed: To get a nice Theta-Sq plot (instead of the all-information
800 debug plot displayed as a standard plot) use the context menu
801 somewhere between the two upper plots, click on "DrawNicePlot"
802 and enjoy the result. (It is the same context menu which contains
803 the "DrawAll" option)
804 PLEASE ALWAYS USE THIS PLOT FOR ANY KIND OF PRESENTATION!
805
806
807
808 *** Version 0.10.2 (2006/10/15)
809
810 - general: changed the building of the sequence files such, that
811 the source-/project name in case of wobble-sources is not the
812 source/project of the first data run anymore but the new generalized
813 wobble source/project
814
815 - general: Added some functions to MAstro to calculate sun and
816 moon properties
817
818 - general: Added two new macros (starvisday.C and starvisyear.C)
819 which allow to plot the visibility of several stars in one day
820 or of one star along one year
821
822
823
824 *** Version 0.10.1 (2006/10/11)
825
826 - general: HTML logging output was distorted... fixed.
827
828 - general: Changed the writing of the sequencefiles such that only
829 as many pedestal files as giving at least 1000 pedestal events which
830 are nearby the first calibration run are used as pedestal runs
831
832 - sponde: In the calculation of the collection area(s) and the
833 distribution for MOnte Carlo and estimated energy the error
834 calculation was wrong because root didn't take the errors
835 properly into account... fixed.
836
837
838
839 *** Version 0.10 (2006/10/10)
840
841 - general: all executables now check consistency of the root version
842 installed with the root version used for compilation. The return
843 code in this case is 255.
844
845 - general: The algorithm to build seqeunces has been redesigned
846 completly. It is now more flexible in terms of a resource file
847 resources/sequences.rc which can be used to partly overwrite
848 the default algorithm and defined the important part of the
849 algorithm. It also takes correctly into account several ways
850 of taking wobble-data. Currently the new algorithm doesn't take
851 the number of pedestal events anymore into account (so a sequence
852 could have much less than 1000 pedestal events and data runs are
853 no-more used instead)
854
855 - general: a lot of small changes to make the code compatible with
856 root 5.12/00 and gcc 4.1
857
858 - general: Fixed some warnings thrown if more warnings are switched
859 on in the compiler
860
861 - general: Added a function to MMath which returns the Median of
862 the distribution abs(y[i]-median) but at 68:32 division instead
863 of 50:50, which is somehow the median counterpart of the rms.
864
865 - general: MAstroCatalog allows now to read calatog files (as bsc5)
866 even if they are compressed with gzip (recommended compression
867 is with "-1")
868
869 - showplot:
870 + batch mode creation of image files now works with root 5.12/00
871 + added support for writing bmp (though it never produces
872 bmp which can be read by programs like xv or gimp)
873 + added support for xml
874 + added new option to start the display with a different size, by
875 --display-width=nnn or --display-height=nnn
876 + added options to define the canvas size when the display is started
877 --canvas-width=nnn or --canvas-height=nnn
878 the option can also be used for batch-mode conversion
879 + added an option which automatically fits the display size to the
880 desktop-size: --auto-size
881
882 - merpp: didn't recognize files with the extension .raw.gz - fixed.
883
884 - merpp: allow the reports to have 1000ms due to a bug in the camera
885 program.
886
887 - callisto: New swapped pixels have been found and corrected. For
888 details see MRawRunHeader::FixAssignment()
889
890 - callisto: Callisto now raises an error if one of the input files could
891 not be opened.
892
893 - callisto: In some rare cases it could happen that in the signal
894 extraction of the digital filter the extractor returned nonsense
895 results due a wrong initializion of a variable (this happens in
896 cases in which the extracted signal is exactly zero or the
897 digital filter couldn't slide because of a too small extraction
898 window, which could happen in the lo-gain extraction)
899
900 - callisto: The lo-gains have been marked as valid in some cases
901 when they got not extracted at all (deltsumlo=deltatimelo=0) because
902 the allowed extraction range (fLoGainLast-fLoGainFirst) was
903 smaller than the number of slices (fLoGainWindowSize) needed
904 by the lo-gain extractor
905
906 - callisto: Updated absolute calibration constants (muon calibration)
907
908 - callisto: fixed a bug which caused the hi-gain saturation not
909 to be handled properly in the spline (the position of the
910 saturation was calculated incorrectly)
911
912 - callisto: fixed a bug which gave weird results if hi- _and_
913 lo-gain could not be extracted properly. In some cases hi-
914 and lo-gain have not been extracted at all and the random result
915 got calibrated. In other cases the hi-gain was saturating and the
916 lo-gain has not been extracted. For this a completly arbitraty
917 scale factor was applied to the result from extracting the
918 charge of the saturating hi-gain.
919
920 - callisto: improves handling of extracted signal if lo- and/or
921 hi-gain could not be extracted properly. If no appropriate
922 calibration of either the signal or the arrival time is possible
923 the pixel is now markes as unsuitable instead of estimated.
924
925 - callisto: Fixed a problem in the spline extraction which gave
926 weird results if the signal was extracted from the first (and
927 highest) slice (as a workaround extraction from the first
928 slice has been forbidden)
929
930 - callisto: Fixed a bug regarding the use of the QE which doesn't
931 effect the result because the default is used anyhow.
932 (The bug was there since 14/07/2005)
933
934 - callisto: Changed the default for fgLoGainStartShift to -2.4
935
936 - callisto: Fixed a bug which caused all hi-/lo-gain calibration
937 factors to be always 10 for all pixels as soon as the first
938 calibration update has happend.
939
940 - callisto: Fixed the hi-/lo-gain offset for the Digital Filter. It
941 was off by more than one slice (which gives wrong values for
942 pixels which have saturated the hi-gain) This was a problem
943 mainly for timing studies, not so much for the automatic standard
944 analysis. Also the values for the Spline have been changed slightly:
945 + Digital Filter from 1.70 to 0.95
946 + Spline from 1.39 to 1.30
947 The numbers were sorted out by an extensive test in the
948 test-database.
949
950 - callisto: Removed the tab showing the average calibrated arrival
951 time. It never gave useful information.
952
953 - callisto: Now tab "HiLoCal" which shows the ratio between hi- and
954 lo-gain pulse for data pulses if hi- and lo-gain have saturated
955 and both were extracted because the hi-gain was above the
956 LoGainSwitch.
957
958 - callisto: Now tab "HiLoOff" which shows the offset between hi- and
959 lo-gain pulse position (after application of LoGainOffset, which
960 means in the ideal case it is 0) for data pulses if hi- and lo-gain
961 have saturated and both were extracted because the hi-gain was above
962 the LoGainSwitch.
963
964 - callisto: After extensive tests a new threshold level for determination
965 of the pulse position has been found at 50phe. This is due to the
966 fact that for lower pulses the arrival time changes its average
967 behaviour dramatically. It tends to the average of the extraction
968 range and starts sticking to non-floating point numbers (5, 6, 7, ...)
969
970 - callisto: Added two more plots to the calibration part. The average
971 extracted signal and the average extracted arrival time as
972 extracted by the signal extractor (This can help debugging problems
973 because it doesn't involve a fit)
974
975 - star: changed the fit for the effective on time such that initial
976 values are calculated automatically now instead of using build
977 in values. This makes the fit more indepedant of the underlaying
978 rates. With a test of ~350 sequences in the test database it could
979 be shown that the new fit gives the same result +/-1sek.
980 The highest deviation was +5s the lowest -10s. You can now control
981 the bahaviour with two resource values:
982 MHEffectiveOnTime.FistBin: 3
983 MHEffectiveOnTime.NumEvents: 12000
984 Use FirstBin=1 and NumEvents=120 to fit the effective on time
985 from the resulting gamma candidates
986
987 - star: The Center histogram in MHHillas is now by default displayed
988 with the colz draw-option
989
990 - ganymed: now produces valid error codes if failed
991
992 - ganymed: MFMagicCuts now supports a hadronness cut. Switch it on
993 with the option "hadronness" instead of "area" or "both" if
994 you want to use both cuts. The hadronness cut includes a fixed
995 cut in hadronness (index 8) and a fixed cut in size (index 9).
996
997 - ganymed: MFMagicCuts: fixed abug introduced 2005/7/14 which caused
998 the M3Long of the anti source to be not properly evaluated
999 (actually is was evaluated as a unique random number) in case
1000 of optimization with anti-theta cut switched on. This might have
1001 lead to improper, but not necessarily wrong, optimization results.
1002
1003 - ganymed: ganymed_onoff.rc, ganymed_wobble.rc - updated with comments
1004 how to use random forest
1005
1006 - ganymed: use the same spark cuts as in ganymed_wobble.rc as in
1007 ganymed_onoff.rc. Seems to be unintentional that they were different.
1008
1009 - sponde: Since the introduction of the possibility to define a
1010 normalization energy instead of using the integral the default
1011 was not using the integral anymore but a normalization energy of
1012 1GeV. It is now the integral again.
1013
1014 - sponde: Fixed a problem in the weighting which did not allow
1015 a MC slope of -1.
1016
1017
1018
1019 *** Version 0.9.6 (2006/05/24)
1020
1021 - general: changed the binning of the azimuthal profile of the camera
1022 such that it is aligned with the 60deg boundaries.
1023
1024 - merpp: better handling of problems with the TH, TD part of the
1025 CC-REPORT for files older than 200507190 and 200412210
1026 respectively
1027
1028 - merpp: improved handling of RECEIVERS-COM-ERROR in CC-REPORT
1029
1030 - merpp: implementd latest changes in starguider reports (sinc 9th May)
1031
1032 - callisto: if an arrival time is extracted outside the fadc range is
1033 was set to the boundary before. Now a random number is assigned
1034 instead to avoid unfortunate coincidences of arrival times just
1035 by this arbitrary value.
1036
1037 - callisto: added a new option to callisto.rc which allows
1038 to set the maximum arrival time difference allowed for the
1039 badpixel algorithm to determin whether a pixels belongs to a shower:
1040 MJCalibrateSignal.MBadPixelsTreat.MaxArrivalTimeDiff: 0.9
1041
1042 - callisto: changed the old value (0.5) for MaxArrivalTimeDiff
1043 to 0.9 as suggested by Stefan due to a recent study on the fraction
1044 of pixels surviving the image cleaning
1045
1046 - callisto: switched off error in case of "pulse is too much to the left"
1047
1048 - callisto: The extraction window is not adapted anymore. This means that
1049 the pulse is extracted from the full range. The draw-back is that the
1050 background (pedestal) will become slightly higher. Switching on/off
1051 the PulsePosCheck in the callisto.rc only effects filling the
1052 histograms.
1053 WARNING: If the pulse is too much to the left data is calibrated!
1054 Check the PulsePosCheck-PulsePosition AND the Inhomogeneity parameter
1055 in the database to make sure that your data is valid!
1056
1057 - star: Show also the number of stars correlated correctly by the
1058 starguider
1059
1060 - ganymed: implemented a new class (MHThetaSqN) which allows to use more
1061 than one off-source region in wobble-mode. To use it add the following to
1062 your ganymed_wobble.rc:
1063 + MJCut.NameHist: MHThetaSqN (switch the new feature on)
1064 + MHThetaSqN.NumOffSourcePos: 3 (define number of off-regions)
1065 + MHThetaSqN.DoOffCut: Yes,No (switch on/off the off-cut)
1066 + Cut1.ThetaCut: None
1067 + MHThetaSqN.SignificanceCutLevel: 2.0 (increase off-cut by 2.0/1.7)
1068
1069 - ganymed: in the case the latest report is older than a default (currently
1070 one minute) and the current report will be skip the starguider
1071 correction and calibration will be reset. The maximum age can be
1072 setup from ganymed.rc by (minutes):
1073 MPointingDevCalc.MaxAge: 1.5
1074
1075 - ganymed: A first implementation showing all size-bins for the theta-sq
1076 resp. alpha-plots in a single tab automatically
1077
1078
1079
1080 *** Version 0.9.5.1 (2006/05/05)
1081
1082 - general: Added a new option "zdiff" to the Makefile which runs
1083 "cvs diff" as "make diff" would do, but with compression
1084
1085 - general: accelerated MTFillMatrix (used for eample in all training
1086 and optimization macros) by skipping some obsolete calles in the
1087 eventloop the first and second loop could be accelerated by ~20%
1088
1089 - general: Added a missing feature in the MFilterList class which
1090 prevented MFEnergySlope from working correctly in trainenergy.C
1091
1092 - general: Accelerated the random forest training and usage a bit
1093
1094 - merpp: Adapted to new raw data file format version 6
1095
1096 - merpp: fixed a problem with reading the starguider reports
1097 after 6.3.2006
1098
1099 - callisto: At some times six pixels had to be exchanged manually in the
1100 data. If the pixels to be swaped are both not found, an error was raised
1101 and calibration was stopped. Now it is assumed they are intentially not
1102 mapped and the Error has been changed to a Warning.
1103
1104 - star: Added new image cleaning based on the arrival time of the shower.
1105 The new cleaning can be accessed using the parameter "Time" instead of
1106 the the old one (like "Absolute) in the star.rc-file.
1107 Recommended parameters:
1108 + MImgCleanStd.CleanLevel1: 8.2
1109 + MImgCleanStd.CleanLevel2: 5
1110 + MImgCleanStd.CleanRings: 2
1111 + MImgCleanStd.KeepSinglePixels: No
1112
1113 - star: Simplified the calculation of the effective on time. By letting
1114 the fit start in the third bin the result should become more stable.
1115 The fit quality is now ignored for the theta-plot which is not used
1116 in the analysis later. Still better pre-cut which, for example,
1117 remove events triggered by car-light (rate changing on a short
1118 time-scale) are missing.
1119
1120 - macros: optimonoff.C, optimwobble.C: implemented a new strategy
1121 for optimization (kWeakSource) which is suggested by the Berlin
1122 people for weak sources.
1123
1124 - macros: plotdb.C:
1125 + if no dataset and no time-interval is given only sequences with
1126 an effective on-time above five minutes are plotted anymore
1127 + added a new tab "RelTime" displaying the relative on-time
1128 (effective on-time divided by the observation time)
1129
1130 - macros: optim*.C: by skipping some obsolete calles in the eventloop
1131 the optimization became a lot faster
1132
1133 - ganymed: In the second loop the MHNewImagePar histograms disapeared.
1134 To display them just delete the pads displayed on top.
1135
1136 - ganymed: fixed a bug which could cause strange behaviour in wobble
1137 mode if no starguider information was available due to an incorrect
1138 initialization of the starguider calibration
1139
1140 - ganymed: The scale region in the False Source Plot (MHDisp) can now
1141 be changed from within the plot. It can also be setup from the
1142 resource file using:
1143 + MHDisp.fScaleMin: 0.325
1144 + MHDisp.fScaleMax: 0.475
1145
1146 - ganymed, showplot: Fixed a problem with the fit to the off-data
1147 (HistOff) which could cause a time lag or an inifinite loop.
1148 The bug did not effect the results at all.
1149
1150 - sponde: Added a new tab showing the effective collection area after
1151 trigger (including the software trigger)
1152
1153 - sponde: MMcSpectrumWeight has a new option which allows to define
1154 the scaling factor not by the integral of the events but at
1155 a defined energy:
1156 e.g. MMcSpectrumWeight.NormEnergy: 200
1157
1158 - MTFillMatrix, sponde: by skipping some obsolete calles in the
1159 eventloops the loop could be accelerated by ~20%
1160
1161
1162
1163 *** Version 0.9.5 (2006/03/13)
1164
1165 - macros: fixed a typo optimwoble.C (SetThetaCut instead SetAlphaCut)
1166 and added the standard Disp-parametrization
1167
1168 - macros: added a new macro datacenter/macros/plotstat.C allowing
1169 to plot statistics about the data processing
1170
1171 - macros: added a new macro to plot the muon correction coefficients
1172 versus period (macros/plot/mucal.C)
1173
1174 - showplot: path inflation for ganymed files was broken
1175
1176 - callisto: Fixed an important bug. When the number of saturating pixels
1177 were calculated the bad pixel information already available from the
1178 calibration was ignored. This yields wrong values in case pixels
1179 are broken and saturate all the time or randomly.
1180
1181 - callisto: Updated Muon calibration constants. Spline data now also uses
1182 different values for different periods
1183
1184 - star: The time-evolution shown in the effective on-time plot now displays
1185 the axis range (if there are no holes it should be similar to the
1186 effective on-time)
1187
1188 - star: Added two new image parameters:
1189 + MNewImagePar.fConcCOG: The ratio of the equivalent signals of
1190 the three pixels next to the center of gravity and the size
1191 + MNewImagePar.fConcCore: The ratio of the signals of all
1192 pixels inside or touching the ellipse and the size
1193
1194 - ganymed: now stops in requested source isn't found in catalog file
1195
1196 - ganymed: Many improvements to the phi-plot in wobble mode:
1197 + with a template the ideal background is displayed
1198 + a possible camera inhomogeneity is taken into account
1199 + the anti theta cut is better supported
1200 + the phi cut is automatically calculated from the theta cut
1201 See the examples in ganymed_wobble.rc for more details.
1202
1203 - ganymed: fixed plot for E^2*dN/dE. The spectrum was multiplied with two
1204 times the bin-width instead of the absolute energy
1205
1206 - ganymed: New cuts for on/off and wobble mode
1207
1208 - ganymed: The smearing of the False Source plot has been increased
1209 to 0.06
1210
1211 - ganymed: The starguider calibration can now be changed from the
1212 resource file.
1213 See the examples in ganymed*.rc for more details.
1214
1215 - ganymed: added a new option for on-/off-observations
1216 MJCut.RandomSourcePosition
1217 If switched on the distribution of observation time of the source
1218 position in the camera is calculated from the on-data and randomly
1219 applied with this distrbution to the off-data.
1220
1221 - ganymed: by skipping some obsolete calles in the eventloop the
1222 first and second loop could be accelerated by ~20%
1223
1224 - ganymed: The default in ganymed_onoff.rc is now to determin the source
1225 position in the off-data randomly according to its distribution in the
1226 on-data.
1227
1228
1229
1230 *** Version 0.9.4.3 (2006/02/13)
1231
1232 - general: Fixed a bug in most of the programs which prevented the
1233 compile date in the startup message to be displayed
1234
1235 - general: Simplified program calls. The following abbreviations
1236 are now possible:
1237 showlog callisto 55599
1238 showplot signal 55599
1239 star 55599
1240 callisto 55999
1241 ganymed 2
1242 In this cases the corrsponding root-, log-, sequence- or dataset-
1243 filename is automatically compiled using the default datacenter
1244 paths ("/magic/*")
1245
1246 - general: Fixed a long outstanding bug which made axis tick marks
1247 disappear if MDataFormula was used (eg. abs(x))
1248
1249 - general: Updated MMath with new functions to calculate the results of
1250 a exponential, logarithmic and powerlaw fits analytically.
1251
1252 - general: Updated some macros with comments:
1253 + macros/optim/optimdisp.C
1254 + macros/optim/optimenergy.C
1255 + macros/optim/optimwobble.C:
1256
1257 - general: MTFillMatrix (the class to fill one or two MHMatrix from
1258 files) now allows adding a pre-cut like in the optimization. E.g. this
1259 is useful to perform g/h-separation cuts before training the random
1260 forest.
1261
1262 - general: Between the rund 53300 and 68754 the pixels 553-558 were not
1263 correctly assigned in the raw data assignement table. A fix to correct
1264 the assignment tabel have been implemented.
1265
1266 - general: MAstroCatalog now allows rotating of the sky-grid and stars
1267 by 90, 180 and 270 deg.
1268
1269 - general: the macro plotdb.C now allows to highlight sequences belonging
1270 to a datset. For more details see the descritions in the macro.
1271
1272 - StatusDisplay: Fixed the algorithm to calculate the size ratio
1273 of the display, it gave wrong results espacially for big sizes.
1274 Now the embedded canvas should always have a ratio width/height=3/2.
1275 The "Size" options have been updated with values fitting the 3/2
1276 size ratio.
1277
1278 - RanForest:
1279 + Updated the random forest classes to support also the
1280 regression method implemented by Thomas H.
1281 + added new tutorial macro how to train the random forest
1282 for energy estimation (macros/optim/rfenergyest.C)
1283 + new classes to train the random forest (still in development)
1284 mjtrain/MJTrainEnergy, mjtrain/MJTrainDisp, mjtrain/MJTrainSeparation
1285 + new tutorial macros for random forest training in macros/train
1286 trainenergy.C, traindisp.C, trainseparation.C
1287
1288 - mars: now allows to setup a cut in the resource file mars.rc to choose
1289 the events to be displayed, eg:
1290 Cut.Condition: {0} && {1}
1291 Cut.0: MHillas.fSize>100
1292 Cut.1: MHillas.fSize<900
1293
1294 - merpp: Made aware of the new .rep format 200510250. This includes
1295 interpretation of the Receiver Board Temperatures (MCameraRecTemp),
1296 the discriminator thresholds (MCameraTD) and the disciminator
1297 delays (MCameraTD). All of them come with the CC report and are therefor
1298 written to the CC tree.
1299
1300 - callisto: fixed a bug in the calculation of the arrival times in
1301 the Digital Filter. They were all shifted by the same amount
1302 fHiGainFirst. This caused an offset in the order of the position of
1303 the left border of the extraction window in the times calculated
1304 from high-gain and from low-gain. The bug effected only the absolute
1305 arrival times. The bug was there since 30.1.2005.
1306
1307 - callisto: Changed the ExtractionWindow for the pulse position check
1308 such that the camera inhomogeneity becomes as less as possible and
1309 comparable to the pulso position check switched off. More details
1310 on the study will be given at our result web-page.
1311
1312 - ganymed: ganymed.rc, ganymed_onoff.rc:
1313 changed to new cuts trained with 1ES1218 and Crab-data
1314 for maximum sigma*log10(excess)
1315
1316 - ganymed: In addition to the Hadronness calculator (CalcHadronness)
1317 a new option was implemented to estimate Disp (CalcDisp)
1318
1319 - ganymed: Implemented two new options which allow
1320 to overwrite the default path to search for the sequence files
1321 --ins=/magic/sequences
1322 and where to search for the image data
1323 --ind=/magic/data/star
1324
1325 - ganymed: MSrcPosCorrect now allows overwriting of the misfocussing
1326 dx/dy from the resource file by
1327 MSrcPosCorrect.Dx
1328 MSrcPosCorrect.Dy
1329
1330 - ganymed: fixed reading the source catalog. Only as many chars
1331 as the requested source name had were compared (If a source
1332 "1ES1218" and "1ES1218+304" were in the catalog and "1ES1218+304"
1333 were requested it could happen that the coordinates of
1334 "1ES1218" were read) The source coordinates are now printed
1335 in addition to its name to the logging output.
1336
1337 - ganymed: changed the background fit in the case of a ThetaSq function
1338 from a polynomial to a exponential, this should give a big improvement
1339 for on-only analysis'
1340
1341 - ganymed/sponde: Calculation of the error of single size-/energy-
1342 bins now uses Li/Ma (5) instead of LiMa (17)
1343
1344 - sponde: Added a plot E^2*dN/dE
1345
1346 - sponde: The energy estimator plot should now show values like
1347 they are commonly used.
1348
1349 - sponde: Now MMcSpectrumWeight also excepts formulas with two X
1350 (a powerlaw with cutoff didn't work before)
1351
1352
1353
1354 *** Version 0.9.4.2 (2005/10/01)
1355
1356 - general: added new tutorial macro macros/tutorials/threshold.C:
1357 how to calculate the threshold
1358
1359 - general: added a new game. Start it from the interpreter with
1360 MagicJam j; (other games are: MineSweeper, MagicSnake, MagicDomino
1361 and MagicReversi)
1362
1363 - general: neighbor pixels in MGeoms are now sorted clockwise
1364
1365 - merpp: made aware of new format 20050829-0
1366
1367 - callisto: New scale factors from muon analysis, stored in new
1368 resource file resources/calibration.rc
1369
1370 - callisto: MBadPixelsCalc now raises an error instead of simply stopping
1371 the eventloop if something went wrong. This is necessary for the
1372 automatic processing
1373
1374 - callisto: Implemented a new treatment for the time information
1375 developed by S.Ruegamer, this should give much better response than
1376 the old very primitive algorithm. This is especially important
1377 for bad pixels due to bright stars as Ceta-Tauri (btw: the old
1378 treatment was buggy! As neighbor pixels to interpolate the
1379 arrival times always the pixels 0 to 5 were taken)
1380
1381 - callisto: In addition to the new treatment of arrival times the
1382 decision of the treatment whether a pixel contains shower
1383 information or not is used to improve the signal interpolation
1384 further. Previously interpolated pixels showed a non-zero signal
1385 do the peak searching signal extractors. Having a signal pixel
1386 beside raised the signal above the cleaning level. Thus the
1387 pixel survived cleaning to often but with a too low mean signal.
1388 By replacing empty pixels with a gaus (mean and rms from the
1389 corresponding Area entries in MPedPhotCam) this effect can
1390 be supressed.
1391
1392 - callisto: The status "unmapped" (for pixel which cannot be interpolated)
1393 got lost when the events were stored by the calibration... fixed.
1394 (This was no problem for normal image cleaning because the pixel
1395 content was artificially set to 0 not surviving standard cleaning
1396 algorithm)
1397
1398 - callisto: Fixed a bug which caused the random and peak-search pedestal
1399 extracted with an extractor to be exchanged for the first (roughly)
1400 500 events (*Extractor and *ExtractorRndm).
1401 (They were simply exchanged in callisto.cc) This bug might have been
1402 introduced in Mars 0.9.4 when the order of calculation of the two
1403 types of pedestal in callisto got exchanged. The bug only effects
1404 the first seconds of data of each sequence.
1405
1406 - star: Taking the arrival time of Muons into account the calculation
1407 of the parameters could be made independant of the noise
1408 (pedestal rms). The dependance was due to the bias of the peak search
1409 extractor. Now only a ZA dependamcy is left which is not yet fully
1410 understood.
1411
1412 - ganymed: The sequences were still not sorted correctly in any case,
1413 because they were sorted by the full qualified path name. Now they
1414 are sorted by their sequence number.
1415
1416 - ganymed: new values for the spark-event-cut
1417
1418 - sponde: required missing MEnergyEst from ganymed.root... fixed.
1419
1420
1421
1422 *** Version 0.9.4.1 (2005/08/18)
1423
1424 - callisto: fixed some problems with the calibration in case of
1425 inteleaved events. Therefor the final and some intermediate
1426 fits are skipped which would take place on partly filled #
1427 histograms and gave wrong results or failed completely.
1428
1429 - callisto: If the intermediate finalization of the histograms
1430 calculating the mean charge of the calibration signal fails
1431 it is counted now and printed in PostProcess of MCalibCalcFromPast.
1432
1433 - ganymed: Fixed some bugs which caused problems in On-only mode.
1434 Still the false source plot doesn't give reasonable results.
1435
1436
1437
1438 *** Version 0.9.4 (2005/08/05)
1439
1440 - general: Fixed the ZA binning. It did not correctly fit the
1441 MC binning
1442
1443 - general: Added a class to correct for the missfocussing in
1444 April (MSrcPosCorrect)
1445
1446 - general: Random Forest energy estimator should now work properly
1447
1448 - general: MHCamera now displays the profiles in deg instead of mm
1449
1450 - general: MH::SetPalette offers a lot of new palettes
1451
1452 - general: MHillas - the case of CorrXY==0 is now handled properly
1453
1454 - general: implemented the possibility to change the line and
1455 marker style of a sky-grid drawn by MAstroCatalog
1456
1457 - general: Runs in sequences and datasets are now automatically
1458 ordered (it is assumed that the order of their filenames correctly
1459 represents the order of observations) to ensure correct reading
1460 of the subsystem data
1461
1462 - general: Runs cannot be added to a sequence twice anymore. Also
1463 Sequences cannot be added twice anymore to a dataset.
1464
1465 - general: fixed a bug in MAstro::Deg2Hms reported by Abelardo.
1466 It gave wrong results by 1./2pi
1467
1468 - showplot: got a new option to start a root interpreter, too
1469
1470 - mars: now displays a rough estimate of Disp and the third moment
1471
1472 - mars: now displays the event time MTime if available
1473
1474 - mars: show muon parameters graphically
1475
1476 - mars: now the file to open can be given as commandline
1477 argument
1478
1479 - merpp: Added support for new arehucas version >= 200507190
1480 implementing values for three temperature sensors in the
1481 counting house (MCameraAUX) and the name of the HV settings file
1482 (MCameraHV).
1483
1484 - merrp: Also fixed some problems with wrong versions numbers stated
1485 by arehucas and implemented some fixed for old versions (<200407070)
1486
1487 - callisto: MCalibrationHiLoCam can now be printed from its context
1488 menu, eg in the TBrowser
1489
1490 - callisto: fixed logain offset (fgOffsetLoGain) from 1.7 to
1491 - 1.39 (MExtractTimeAndChargeSpline)
1492 - 1.40 (MExtractTimeAndChargeDigitalFilter)
1493 This is important mainly for timing studies.
1494
1495 - callisto: Changed limits in MHCalibrationChargeCalc from
1496 - -100.125 to -98 (fgChargeHiGainFirst)
1497 - 1899.875 to 1902. (fgChargeHiGainLast)
1498 - -100.25 to -99 (fgChargeLoGainFirst)
1499 - 899.75 to 901. (fgChargeLoGainLast)
1500 Introduced new limits:
1501 - fgNumLoGainBlackoutLimit: 0.05
1502 - fgLoGainBlackoutLimit: 3.5
1503 - fgLoGainPickupLimit: 3.5
1504
1505 - callisto: The handling of automatic weights for the digital filter
1506 has been improved. There are now new calibration weights special
1507 for Monte Carlo calibrations.
1508
1509 - callisto: Updated Muon scale with latest results (1% difference
1510 for most data, 5% for Mar/Apr'05)
1511
1512 - callisto: use a new criterium to exclude bad pixels: If the high-gain
1513 was saturated and the blackout-events in the low-gain exceed the
1514 fNumLoGainBlackoutLimit, the pixel is declared unsuitable.
1515 This excludes those pixels which have a saturating high-gain
1516 channel, but the low-gain switch does not switch often enough
1517 to make the distribution reliable.
1518
1519 - callisto: fix a bug counting the number of saturated events. Up to now,
1520 the number of saturated slices was counted (which is one for a not too
1521 high number), but for some (pathological) pixels, many more slices
1522 saturated and produced wrong limits.
1523
1524 - callisto: New options in in callisto.rc for MCalibrationRelTimeCalc:
1525 + MCalibrationRelTimeCam.CheckFitResults: Yes
1526 + MCalibrationRelTimeCam.CheckDeviatingBehavior: Yes
1527 + MCalibrationRelTimeCam.CheckHistOverflow: Yes
1528 + MCalibrationRelTimeCam.CheckOscillations: Yes
1529
1530 - callisto: introduce max. number of events for intercalibration,
1531 the rest gets skipped. Default: 4096
1532 The calibration causes too many un-reliable pixels if more
1533 than about 5000 events are treated (@500 Hz) because of the
1534 mode hopping of the VCSels. However, in the past, some
1535 calibration runs have been taken (erroneously) with more
1536 than 5000 events, especially the intensity scans where
1537 a good precision is needed.
1538
1539 - callisto: Set UseExtractorRes to kTRUE, will raise the number of
1540 photo-electrons for the spline extractor by 1-2% (correctly).
1541
1542 - callisto: The intercalibration is now done using a full f-factor
1543 method instead of a simple update. This makes things slower but
1544 more reliable in terms of gain-fluctuations and sudden VCSEL gain
1545 changes.
1546
1547 - callisto: MPedestalY3 now uses the same extraction range as the data
1548 as calculated by MPedestalY2
1549
1550 - callisto: A check of the fraction of allowed unsuitable (10%) and
1551 unreliable (30%) pixels has been addded when the conversion is
1552 calculated from interleaved events
1553
1554 - star: fixed a bug which caused MEffectiveOnTime containers not to
1555 be written. In the worst case they were skipped almost all, in the
1556 best case they were all ok. It depends on how often the new value
1557 was assigned just with an event which was skipped later by another
1558 task
1559
1560 - star: new histograms MHPointing and MHRate
1561
1562 - star: New tab (Currents) displaying the time evolution of the mean
1563 DC currents
1564
1565 - star: New tab (MeanRms) displaying the time volution of the mean
1566 Pedestal Rms
1567
1568 - star: Output now contains MReportStarguider
1569
1570 - star: Improved muon analysis. Due to the absense of a constant
1571 for the gaus fit for arc width and the fact that the arcwidth
1572 plot was a histogram instead of a profile the resulting psf
1573 became pedestal rms dependant
1574
1575 - ganymed: added new plot (MHPhi) for wobble mode as described in
1576 http://www.astro.uni-wuerzburg.de/results/ringmethod/
1577
1578 - ganymed: corrects now (correctly?) for the misspointing in
1579 May/April 05
1580
1581 - ganymed: Two new default templates for ganymed.rc are avilable:
1582 ganymed_onoff.rc and ganymed_wobble.rc
1583
1584 - ganymed: The first version of MFMagicCuts has been released
1585
1586 - ganymed: the Conc1 plot was incorrectly scaled in MHVsSize
1587
1588 - ganymed, sponde: There are two new options to determin the number
1589 of bins for the signal region (NumBinsSignal) and the number of
1590 total bins (NumBinsTotal) in the MHThetaSq histogram
1591
1592 - ganymed: optimized palettes for MHDisp
1593
1594 - ganymed: Fixed an important bug when using ThetaSq as fit function:
1595 The result for the sigma of the gauss(sqrt(x)) fit was a factor
1596 sqrt(2) to large
1597
1598 - ganymed: The false source plot (MHDisp) is now based on Disp
1599 and a background model determined in the first loop is
1600 subtracted
1601
1602 - ganymed: MFMagicCuts are now available in the cvs. The correct
1603 solution for the disp ambiguity problem is now calculated using
1604 the third moment. The third moment cut therefor is skipped.
1605
1606 - ganymed: Output now contains "Disp [MParameterD]" which sign is
1607 already determined by the third moment along the major axis and
1608 so its actual sign is aligned along the major axis of the shower.
1609
1610 - ganymed: If starguider data is available it is taken into account
1611 when calculating the source position. This is especially important
1612 for wobble data at high zenith angles and culmination data.
1613
1614 - ganymed: If available the starguider data is taken into account as
1615 good as it is possible without a starguider calibration. To switch
1616 it off add
1617 MPointingDevCalc.MaxAbsDev: -1
1618 to your ganymed.rc
1619
1620 - sponde: the zenith angle distribution is now weighted instead of
1621 choosen by default. This gurantees higher statistics in the highest
1622 and lowest energy bins. To switch this behaviour off use...
1623
1624 - sponde: now automatically displays the energy threshold
1625
1626
1627
1628 *** Version 0.9.3 (2005/06/03)
1629
1630 - general: MMcEvt now derived from MMcEvtBasic which should
1631 have no influence on compatibility with older camera files
1632
1633 - general: Implemented a new option to MReadReports which allows
1634 to force reading of the first event of some trees (eg. Drive-tree)
1635 before any other tree.
1636
1637 - general: Made a fix to MPointingPosCalc which assumes that the
1638 run-type is real-data if Process is called before ReInit, such
1639 that also the very first Drive-events in a run are treated
1640 correctly.
1641
1642 - shoplot now displays the filename in the title bar of the window
1643
1644 - merpp: new options: --auto-time-start --auto-time-stop which
1645 allow to cut updating with slow-control at the start- or
1646 (previousle --auto-time only allowed: and) stop-time of
1647 the run stored in the runheader.
1648
1649 - callisto: changed default of fgFallTimeHiGain in
1650 MExtractTimeAndChargeSpline from 1.5 to 0.5. 0.5 was
1651 already set as default in callisto_Dec04Jan05.rc
1652
1653 - callisto: the digital filter (MExtractTimeAndChargeDigitalFilter)
1654 now changes the filename for new weights automatically for
1655 cosmics, MC and for different calibration colors.
1656
1657 - callisto: a problem with the order of some code cause the
1658 name of the weights file in MPedestalY2 to be ignored.
1659 Wrongly the calibration_UV weights were used instead
1660 of the cosmics weights set in callisto.rc.
1661
1662 - callisto: should allow ct1 pulser data when the color is
1663 explicitly set also for pretty new runs
1664
1665 - callisto: a new option (MCalibrateData.ScaleFactor) allows
1666 to introduce an additional scale factor (should be around 1)
1667 to adapt for slight deviations in different extractors from
1668 the MC calibration. For MC calibrations the scale factor
1669 is fixed to 1
1670
1671 - callisto: MFCosmics should handle very high signals a bit
1672 more accurate now
1673
1674 - callisto: when calculating the mean pedestal rms for different
1675 pixel sizes or sectors also kUnsuitableEvt is now taken into
1676 account - not only kUnsuitableRun
1677
1678 - callisto: '-raw' option is now the default
1679
1680 - callisto: A dead pixel check has been implemented in MJPedestalC2.
1681 This has the advantage that mean values in the calibration (eg
1682 arrival times) are calculated more accuratly.
1683
1684 - callisto: In the resource file callisto_Dec04Jan05.rc
1685 MJPedestalY2.ExtractWinRight has been reduced from 4.0 to 2.0
1686
1687 - callisto: new Hi-/Lo-Gain intercalibration constants
1688 hilocalib_sp1.root and hilocalib_sp1_mc.root
1689
1690 - callisto: changed default for MJPedestalY2.MaxEvents
1691 from 2000 to 5000 like in callisto_Dec04Jan05.txt
1692
1693 - callisto: in MCalibrationChargeCalc the limit fgPheErrLowerLimit
1694 has changed from 9.0 to 6.0. This is necessary to exclude two very
1695 ringing pixels in September which - when kept - destroy the image
1696 cleaning around them (Markus G.)
1697
1698 - callisto: (!) The Muon analysis of all data taken so far has
1699 suggested that different extractors give slightly different
1700 absolute results after calibration, due to there different
1701 handling of the calibration- and cosmics pulse shape. Although
1702 the over all calibration seems to be a bit to pesimistic (or
1703 the MC seems to be a little bit - 3-5% - too much attenuated).
1704 There for correction factors have been introduced which correct
1705 the calibration constants by
1706 0.956937799 for Digital Filter (callisto.rc)
1707 and
1708 0.904159132 for Spline (callisto_Dec04Jan05.rc)
1709 calibration. The main advantage is, that both data types can
1710 be easily analysed together and compared to the same MC sample.
1711 The factors are choosen such, that the reference is now a
1712 Monte Carlo sample calibrated with Digital Filter (callisto.rc)
1713
1714 - star: fixed a bug which caused the first bin of the histograms
1715 vs time to disapear in PostProcess. This gave wrong results
1716 on the screen. The output and all following programs not
1717 directly accessing the histograms haven't been affected
1718
1719 - star, ganymed: Made sure that always the first Drive-tree event
1720 is read and Processed before the first data event was read.
1721
1722 - ganymed: implemented the possibility to replace the standard
1723 false source plot with a different one. For example: If
1724 you want to use a Disp based FS plot use the resource:
1725 NameHistFS: MHDisp
1726 For details about the requirements of these plots look
1727 at the corresponding classes
1728
1729 - MJOptimize: For On/Off and Wobble optimization MJOptimize
1730 has been replaced by MJOptimizeCuts. To use MHThetaSq instead
1731 of MHAlpha call MJOptimizeCuts("MHThetaSq"). Make sure in this
1732 case MAlphaFitter is setup correctly. For On-Only optimization
1733 MJOptimize has been Replaced by MJOptimizeCuts, too. Call
1734 RunOn() instead of Run(). For energy estimation MJOptimize
1735 has been replaced by MJOptimizeEnergy
1736
1737 - sponde: The input MC spectrum can now be weighted to fake a
1738 different spectrum. This is done via MMcSpectrumWeight. For
1739 more details see the class description and sponde.rc
1740
1741 - sponde: The paremeter comparsion plots are not scaled by
1742 their entries anymore. Instead the MC plot is scaled by using
1743 the result spectrum of the analysis. If the input MC spectrum
1744 and the result spectrum has different slopes the absolut
1745 normalization is normally wrong.
1746
1747
1748
1749 *** Version 0.9.2 (2005/05/20)
1750
1751 - general: Changed the default paths for calibrated data and image
1752 files. (The implemented access to these files doesn't yet exist)
1753
1754 - general: support for MRunIter has been removed from the job classes
1755 (use the setter functions of MSeqeunce instead)
1756
1757 - general: ProcessFile has been renamed to Process in all job classes,
1758 because ProcessFile is missleading
1759
1760 - general: The storage of the palette in MHCamera is now possible
1761
1762 - general: new bits describing unsuitable and unreliable pixels have
1763 been introduced in MBadPixelsPix: kPreviouslyExcluded,
1764 kDeadPedestalRms, kFluctuatingArrivalTimes
1765
1766 - general: fixed reading of CC-REPORTS (weather data) for Arehucas file
1767 versions newer than V200404070
1768
1769 - general: support for cc file versions newer than V200504130. Added
1770 support for active loads (MCameraActiveLoad) and central pixel
1771 (MCameraCentralPixel)
1772
1773 - general: added new histograms for image parameters versus size
1774 (MHVsSize)
1775
1776 - general: The eventloop now automatically calls PrintStatistics
1777
1778 - Status Display: Improved support for printing:
1779 + A default can now be set in .rootrc (for more details see
1780 MStatusDisplay::PrintPS)
1781 + A print dialog is opened so that printer and command line
1782 can be canged
1783
1784 - showlog: improved such that it handles different verbosity levels
1785 more accurate now. This mean you can suppress output when
1786 using showlog.
1787
1788 - showplot: improved
1789 + The new graphics formats have been implemented
1790 (pdf, svg, png, jpg and xpm)
1791 + Implemented an interface for printing. Because you can change
1792 the printing command from the command line you can use all
1793 the nice postscript tool. To print a booklet for example call:
1794 showplot -b --print --print-cmd="cat %f" filename.root | lpr
1795 showplot -b --print --print-cmd="psbook %f | psnup -2 | lpr" filename.root
1796 showplot -b --null --print --print-cmd="psbook %f" filename.root > book.ps
1797
1798 - callisto: fixed a bug in the recognition of the calibration bit
1799 pattern. Concerns only intensity calibration. (The strength of the
1800 intensity has been updated in some cases)
1801
1802 - callisto: add a filter against PIN Diode events when running over
1803 calibration runs since some of the recent calibration runs have
1804 been taken with Pin Diode.
1805
1806 - callisto: added support for the runs 39942, 39944, 44834, 39941,
1807 39943, 44833 in the calibration (MCalibColorSet)
1808
1809 - callisto: MJCalibration.MHCalibrationChargeCam.ProbLimit has
1810 been set to 1e-18 in callisto_Dec04_Jan05.rc
1811
1812 - callisto: in callisto_Dec04Jan05.rc: set value for
1813 MJPedestalY2.MaxEvents from 2000 to 5000 to get better
1814 statistics for the calculation of the mean pulse time
1815 of the cosmisc
1816
1817 - callisto: the charge limit in the calibration has been raised
1818 from 2.5 to 4.5
1819
1820 - callisto: new setup read from callisto.rc
1821 + MCalibCalcFromPast.fNumEventsDump
1822 + MHCalibrationChargeCam.NumHiGainSaturationLimit
1823 + MHCalibrationChargeCam.NumLoGainSaturationLimit
1824
1825 - callisto: MExtractTimeAndChargeSpline extractor:
1826 + The integration ranges were shifted by 0.2 FADC slices to the right.
1827 + unreliable handling of floating point values caused different
1828 results on different platform or with different compiler options:
1829 The new algorithm is numerically exact and more accurate because
1830 it doesn't calculate the integration position by multiple times
1831 adding the step-size (which results in numerical uncertanties
1832 exspecially if multiplied with large numbers)
1833 + A lot of fixes have been introduced which effects integrating the
1834 spline at the edges of the valid range. In this case any memory
1835 was randomly accessed. This behaviour can be tested replacing
1836 all MArrayF by TArrayF which perform a range check (but of course
1837 they are a lot slower)
1838 ! No result obtained with the Spline before can be trusted! Due to
1839 random memory access it might by completely random!
1840
1841 - callisto: set new defaults in MExtractTimeAndChargeDigitalFilter:
1842 + extraction range in the high gain to 4.
1843 + weights file to cosmics_weights46.dat
1844
1845 - callisto:
1846 + introduce the check for fluctuating arrival times.
1847 + set charge limit to from 2.5 to 4.5
1848 + introduce asymmetric exclusion due to "deviating number of phes":
1849 Default: -9.0 +4.5
1850 + make deviating number of phes unsuitable (see David's findings).
1851
1852 - callisto: fixed the display of unsuitable pixels. The old change
1853 to a real profile in MHCamera broke it.
1854
1855 - callisto: The cosmics filter is used in MJCalibration now
1856 independant of the pulser color (formaly it was used only for
1857 CT1-pulser data). The threshold of number of max empty pixels
1858 has been raised from 2% to 5% in MJCalibration. The maximum
1859 fraction of rejected event is 50% otherwise the calibration has
1860 failed. The filter now ignores unsuitable pixels.
1861 Setup the filter from callisto.rc using "ContCosmics"
1862 (see MFCosmics::ReadEnv)
1863
1864 - callisto: changed default for fgOffsetFromLogain back
1865 from -2.8 to -1.8 in digital filter.
1866
1867 - callisto: for the common extractors
1868 + MExtractFixedWindow
1869 * MExtractTimeAndChargeSlidingWindow
1870 * MExtractTimeAndChargeSpline
1871 * MExtractTimeAndChargeDigitalFilter
1872 the hi- and lo-gain reolution is stored in fResolutionPerPheHiGain
1873 and fResolutionPerPheLoGain
1874
1875 - callisto: Updated the hi-/lo-gain intercalibration constants
1876 hilocalib_sp1.root, hilocalib_df46_mc.root, hilocalib_df4.root,
1877 hilocalib_df6.root
1878
1879 - callisto: The default lo-gain extraction window for the
1880 MExtractTimeAndChargeSlidingWindow extractor has been increased
1881 from 6 to 8 to take the stretch of the pusle into account
1882
1883 - callisto (!!!): fixed an important bug in the setting of the
1884 incoming pedestal pointer to the signal extractor extracting
1885 pedestals. This bug caused the pedestals not to be subtracted
1886 correctly in the calibration afterwards. The effect was about 10%
1887 too high conversion factors for the digital filter and the spline
1888 and more than 40% for the sliding window.
1889 The bug existed since end of February! (Markus G.)
1890
1891 - star: added muon support to star. A new tab "MHMuonPar" is
1892 displayed. The lower right plot is an estimate of the point spread
1893 function. A reference value is displayed. To get the real PSF
1894 you must compare with MC. The setup for the muon analysis
1895 is done in star.rc. More informations can be found in
1896 MHSingleMuon and MHCalibParCalc
1897
1898 - star: The weather data is now displayed in star
1899
1900 - star: MEventRateCalc handles the calculation of the event rate more
1901 accurate now in case of the start of a new run inside a sequence
1902
1903 - ganymed: a bug in MSrcPosCalc has been fixed (The changes were taken
1904 from a bugfix of Wolfgang to Loc0LocToCam; Wolfgang: the results are
1905 changed only minimally
1906
1907 - ganymed: (MJCut and MJOptimize) now displayes the number of
1908 excess events versus size. The energy estimation is done in
1909 MJSpectrum (sponde)
1910
1911 - ganymed: got support for using other variables than Alpha, eg. Theta.
1912 Therefor you need a class deriving from MHAlpha which supports
1913 this variable (one is already existing: MHTheta, which is now the
1914 default in ganymed). It is setup through ganymed.rc
1915
1916 - added a full featured spectrum program (sponde) which reads
1917 ganymed output and monte carlos and compiles a spectrum
1918
1919
1920
1921 *** Version 0.9.1 (2005/04/14)
1922
1923 - Fix bug on the arrival time reconstruction when using Digital
1924 Filter (in some marginal cases (10%) times were reconstructed shifted
1925 by 0.2 slices)
1926
1927 - all executables now return 2 where in previous versions -1 has
1928 been returned (gave problems with shell-scripts)
1929
1930 - the Hi-/Lo-Gain intercalibration for monte carlo files is now
1931 also done with a intercalibration input file
1932
1933 - a bug in the time fine adjustment of the digital filter has been fixed
1934
1935 - a lot of small fixes to calling TPad::Divide with a margin==0
1936
1937 - MStatusDisplay now shows the memory usage
1938
1939 - added a memory leak statistic after the eventloop
1940
1941 - MHadronness replaced by MParameterD
1942
1943 - MEnergyEst replaced by MParameterD
1944
1945 - wobble mode can now be switched on from the data-set
1946
1947 - switched on bad pixel detection for a pedestal level
1948 which is more than 5 times the variance
1949
1950 - Fixed default paths to be correct for the new data center
1951
1952 - Fixed handling of drive data. The pointing position in now
1953 copied to MPointingPos inside star for real and MC events
1954
1955 - made sure, that the sequences in a dataset are sorted by
1956 their number to ensure the correct synchronization
1957
1958 - added all resource files necessary to handle spline extraction
1959 of signal for the late 2004 and the early 2005 data
1960
1961 - update the reference lines for the december data
1962
1963 - changed default for fgHiGainFirst from 2 to 0 in spline extractor
1964 This is important for the Dec. and Jan. data where the calibration
1965 pulse position changes much.
1966
1967 - changed default for fgOffsetFromLogain from -1.8 to -2.8 in digital
1968 filter. This corrects only an defective extraction of the MC at
1969 low-gain signals lower than 90 phes.
1970
1971 - fixed some slowdown in calibrating data with interleaved events from
1972 Jan and Dec. As a workaround made the pretty palette the default.
1973 The inverse Deep Blue Sea has a bug which slows down long calibration
1974 runs a lot.
1975
1976 - implemented new values from new starguider report as defined
1977 in TDAS00-07 V7.1 (eg SkyBrighness)
1978
1979 - Fixed the formerly wrong unit of azimuth and zenith angle deviation
1980 in starguider report (If you merpp the same reports with this version
1981 you'll get the correct units (arcmin) but a different result
1982 than with old versions (wrong units))
1983
1984 - Now the status display can also write PNG, JPEG and XPM (other file
1985 formats are still unsupported by root)
1986
1987 - added a lot of scripts and macros in directory datacenter used
1988 for automatic processing
1989
1990
1991
1992 *** Version 0.9 (2005/03/23)
1993
1994 - Calibration is now done autmatically into photo-electrons like
1995 decided by the Collaboration Board
1996
1997 - Reference lines in the display can be read from resource file
1998
1999 - Interlaced calibration events can be handled by callisto
2000
2001 - Hi-Gain vs. Lo-Gain calibration constants can be calculated
2002 and applied in callisto.
2003
2004 - class MJCalibTest can be called by callisto
2005
2006 - callisto can now run with three data types: rawdata, rootdata, MC
2007
2008 - added two classes mreport/MReportStarguider.cc and
2009 mreport/MReportStarguider.h for implementing starguider-data
2010
2011 - the output of merpp-update now contains starguider information:
2012 MReportStarguider and MTimeStarguider
2013
2014 - Fixed bug in MHHadronness.cc which made that the displayed Q-factor
2015 values were lower than they should. This was more visible for high
2016 energy (Size) events.
2017
2018 - Made MExtractTimeAndChargeDigitalFilter the default for callisto
2019
2020 - added a new loop to callisto to support the correct extraction of
2021 the pedestal and pedestal rms through the signal extractor
2022
2023 - added class to perform fourier tranformation of a hexagonal structure
2024 (MHexagonalFT)
2025
2026 - added class to perform fourier tranformation of a hexagonal structure
2027 in a tasklist (MHexagonalFTCalc) example: hft.C
2028
2029 - added class to enhance the MCerPhotEvt from the Magic camera geometry
2030 MGeomCamMagic to a enhanced geometry MGeomCamMagicXT having only
2031 small pixels, example: extendcam.C
2032
2033 - added possibility to write data to memory (TTree) using MWriteRootFile
2034

2045 + pedestal from extractor (MPedPhotFromExtractor): extracted with the
2046 signal extractor without randomization
2047 + random pedestal from extractor (MPedPhotFromExtractorRndm): extracted
2048 with the signal extractor with randomization (extraction window is
2049 randomly fixed)

2052 + pedestal from extractor with randomizatiuon (MPedPhotFromExtractorRndm):
2053 extracted with the signal extractor with randomization
2054
2055 - callisto now finds the pulse position in the data automatically

2547 - MTaskList::PrintStatistics can now be instructud to print also the
2548 title, too: use PrintStatistics(0, kTRUE)
2549
2550 - Changed the image cleaning so that pixels with to many 'used'
2551 neighbors are left used (to get rid of 'holes' in events)

2583 doesn't overload MParCointainer::AsciiWrite
2584
2585 - The Ascii Output is now also capable of writing single data members
2586 of one container
2587
2588 - You are now able to change the order of the values written to the
2589 ascii file
2590
2591 - You can now specify a conversion factor for each data member written
2592 to an ascii file. This may be usefull to change the units of the
2593 data member (eg. degrees instead of millimeters in case of the
2594 hillas parameters)
2595
2596 - Replaced old MHillas by a new structure which allows you to extend
2597 the parameters stored in MHillas very easily:
2598 see MHillas and MHillasExt
2599
2600 - Added classes to handle source dependancy of image parameters:
2601 see MHillasSrc
2602
2603 - Added container (MBinning) to have a standard input for the binning
2604 in different histograms (eg. the Energy bins should be the same in
2605 all histograms)
2606
2607 - Changed Hillas histograms from mm to deg
2608
2609 - Added the flexible binning to the hillas histograms
2610
2611 - Added a filter for the alpha parameter (MFAlpha)
2612
2613 - It is now possible to write single data members of a class object to
2614 an output stream instead of the whole container only
2615
2616 - Added a generalized filter for a data member:
2617 MFDataMember filter("MHillas.fWidth", '<', 0.5);
2618
2619 - Added a generalized Filter parser for more difficult filter rules
2620 MF filter("MHillas.fWidth<0.5 && MHillas.fLength>0.5");
2621
2622 - Added new Monte Carlo histograms:
2623 MHMcEnergyImpact and MHMcEfficiency
2624
2625 - Added many new histograms needed for the flux calculation.
2626
2627 - Added a generalized histograms which can fill and show up to three
2628 data members in either a one-, two- or three-dimensional histogram, eg:
2629 MH3 mh3("MHillas.fWidth", "MHillas.fLength");
2630
2631 - Added:
2632 * calculation of <Theta> as a function of Theta (MHThetabarTheta)
2633 * calculation of <Theta> as a function of time (MHThetabarTime)
2634 they are needed in the flux calculation in
2635 order to select for a given bin in Theta (or time) the appropriate
2636 effective collection area, which is assumed to be given as a function
2637 of Theta and the true energy
2638
2639 - Added calculation of the migration matrix in the energy
2640 (MHMcEnergyMigration):
2641 the migration matrix describes the migration from the true (E_true)
2642 to the estimated energy (E_est); it is needed to determine the
2643 distribution of E_true from the measured distribution of E_est
2644 by unfolding
2645
2646 - changed the color palette in the camera display to DeapSea.
2647
2648
2649

2652 - Introduce the option of disable pixels (MBlindPixels and
2653 MBlindPixelCalc) for the analysis (eg MHillasCalc) to be
2654 able to deal with Star Field NSB.
2655
2656 - Fixed a bug in the pedestals substraction
2657
2658 - Introduced verbosity levels
2659

2664
2665 - Introduced correct treatment of the diffuse Night Sky Background
2666 and NSB (MMcPedestalNSB)
2667
2668 - Corrected treatment of the electronic noise (MMcPedestalCopy)
2669
2670 - Introduced MMcRunHeaders which contains monte carlo run informations
2671
2672 - Added a 'Print'-Task (MPrint) which calls the Print function
2673 of a parameter container for each event
2674
2675 - Removed MHtml (was replaced by THtml of root 3.02) in dohtml.C
2676
2677 - changes to be more efficient with root 3.02/06
2678
2679 - root 3.02/06 fixes:
2680 + the memory leak when reading MRawEvtData
2681 + loosing more time than necessary to update the progress bar
2682
2683 - MWriteAsciiFile is now capable of writing more than one container
2684 in a line. For example: To be able to write Monte Carlo and
2685 Hillas values (energy and alpha) in one line.

2709 be written to a file by MWriteRootFile without request
2710
2711 - changed the object I/O from the old stylish root I/O to the new
2712 'auto evolution scheme' This was done only for classes which are not
2713 yet used in Monte Carlo files, so that these files are still readable.
2714
2715 - Added support for a progress bar in MEvtLoop and MReadTree
2716 (see the Analysis Window in Mars for an example)
