The HepMCAnalysis Tool is a tool for generator validation and
The main idea is to have a stable, easy-to-use and extendable
framework to provide a fast access point to generator level
A class library with benchmark physics processes has been written
to analyse HepMC generator output and fill root histograms.
A web-interface is provided to display all or selected
histograms, compare to references and validate the results based
on Kolmogorov Tests.
Steerable example programs can be used for event generation and
conversion to HepMC format.
The HepMCAnalysis Tool is supported on the same platforms as the
It links against the GENSER installation. and it will
automatically detect the CERN or the DESY mirror of the GENSER
The HepMCAnalysis Tool was developed by Cano Ay, Wolfgang
Ehrenfeld, Sebastian Johnert, Judith Katzy and Zhonghua Qin.
