Title: Animated CMS visualisation: a CERN summer student project
Speaker: Jonathan Prance (Birmingham)
The CMS preshower is made of two modules, each in front of one of the electromagnetic calorimeter endcaps. It's purpose is to stimulate showers and to help reduce backgound for the Higgs->two photons signal. A brief description of its design will be given. Also an overview of the CMS software chain will be presented with particular focus on 'IGUANA' (the visualisation package). A explanation of modifications made to IGUANA to produce animations will be given and the results shown.
