Tutorials

Tips for getting started on the Duke physics Linux machines.

If you are unfamiliar with programming (or Fortran), here is a Fortran tutorial it may be helpful to go through (check out these notes before trying it here at Duke.) Fortran is not the most modern language (I recommend next learning C++), but a lot of existing SK software is written in Fortran, and this tutorial will help develop some basic programming concepts.

A first superscan tutorial

A first Super-K code example

Super-K code example 2: making histograms

Super-K code example 3: making ntuples

Super-K Monte Carlo example: detector simulation

Super-K code exercise: making a Monte Carlo tuning sample
