R3BRoot is a software framework developed at GSI, used for simulations and data analysis of R3B experiments. It inherits basic framework functionality from FairRoot, extending it with R3B-specific detectors and algorithms implementation. R3BRoot has a modular design with shared libraries, which are loaded on demand. The simulation part is based on the Virtual Monte Carlo (VMC) concept. For the description of detector geometry and input for the simulation, multiple formats are supported. It also includes parameter handling, event display, etc.
New stable version of R3BRoot is now available: "apr17". The release notes, compatibility issues and a download link can be found on the corresponding GitHub page. Note: master branch was updated as well.
Preparing the environment - Installing stuff required for FairSoft
In principle, you can skip this step and try to get things done. If nothing breaks and you get no errors, great. If you do run into problems, be prepared to do everything again.
Registration for the next R3BRoot Workshop is now open at https://indico.gsi.de/event/2nd-r3broot-ws. Please register until February 15-th. The event will take place from 7-th till 9-th of March at GSI in "IT Schulungsraum".
New releases of FairSoft and FairRoot are available. The source code of may16 and v-16.06 stable versions can be downloaded from GitHub - link is on the installation instructions page. Release notes can be also found on GitHub.
Third patch of FairRoot v-15.11c is released. It includes important features for R3BRoot users.
Currently, the work is ongoing on connecting UCESB and R3BRoot. The goal is to have mapped raw data saved to a tree as arrays of R3BRoot objects. A working prototype is available in the dev branch on GitHub, together with example readers for event header and NeuLAND.
New stable versions of FairSoft and FairRoot are available. The source code can be downloaded from GitHub page - link is in the "Distribution" section of installation instructions on this website.
Thanks to work of Pablo Cabanelas, the Development branch of R3BRoot is now compatible with ROOT version 6. If you want to test this branch before it will become a stable version, following steps are needed:
The source code of R3BRoot is now located on GitHub, URL is:
Starting from August 10-th, 2015, compiler with C++11 support is required for building of r3broot. Minimum version for gcc is 4.8, for clang is 3.4. Developers can now make use of C++11 features.
