Major Categories of Systematic Error for Interference Paper:

(as per SK suggestions)
  1. Theory which SK will estimate (currently two papers out regarding theory)
  2. Fitting(i.e. polynomial vs. 1/t fit)
  3. Cuts
  4. Check out SK QM writeup for further discussion of systematics.
Another suggestion about systematics was to scale the error bars by a factor of [sqrt(2)/(chisq/dof)] to get a better overall fit, as per particle data group procedure. Though this is not ideal, since they take a bunch of independent measurements and perform a fit. Obviously this is not what we're doing.

Setting Up StarClassLibrary on Nuclear

As per Manuel's request I attempted to setup StarClassLibrary on nuclear.
  1. Checkout the Library on RCF
  2. Put it on Nuclear.
  3. Need to complile the library...or do we?
  4. Currently the Library is sitting there, uncompiled. Not sure if anyone else can 'see' it.

FYI useful info about Nuclear
