Hi,

I've just read Neasan and Alex's report of Werner Herr's statementa bout LHC@H past and future role in commissioning of the LHC (by the way, many thanks to Neasn and Alex for getting this and having it published on LHC@H newsfeed!).

In Mr. Herr's words (or is it Mr. Werner, Herr means Mr. in German..) LHC@H will be devoted to the study of the effects of focusing magnets on beam properties next.
Will Sixtrack be used for this study as well?

What about the porting of other applicatiosn used within the LHC project to the BOINC environemnt (I read about GARFIELD and ATLAS being ported to BOINC in the past)?

bye

First the Herr thing confused me for a while too, but his surname is Herr.

Secondly it will still be sixtrack which will be used for the new study and the current jobs are a lead up to a more robust study.

Thirdly as regards other applications, I have said this dotted around the place, we are investigating them at the moment. Porting the software the LHC experiments(ATLAS, CMS, LHCb, LHCf, Totem and Alice) use is not easily done so we have people looking into that. Garfield we hope to be discussing in the nearer future it is closer than running actual science from the LHC but still in discussion stages.

Neasan,

thanks for the update.

Sorry for bothering you regarding other applications, and GARFIELD in particular, but I guess most of us crunchers had expectations about that since one of the last news we got before moving LHC@H to QMC mentoned that GARFIELD would have been put aside to SIXTRACK on LHC@H.

Thanks anyway.

Thanks! It is always nice to get news "from the horse's mouth", and this is very good news! ;)
