The SctParSim package is being developed by the SCT Collaboration. Simple parametric response of the SCT detector is implemented in SctParSim. The main focus of this package are high performance and ease of use. The package is implemented with the python language and uses PODIO as interface for data.
Geometry: primitives and algorithms
The Geometry package contains
CylindricalLayer classes. Each detector subsystem is an inheritor of the
CylindricalLayer. It is assumed the inner and outer cylinders are oriented along the z axis and have common centre in the origin point.
Path is a trajectory of particle in the detector. Path of neutral particles (photons, neutrons), straight line, is described by the Line class. Path of charged particles (electron, muon, pion, kaon, proton), helix, is described by the Helix class. The
Helix are designed to have similar interfaces in order to be used in the same algorithms.
SCT detector is described in the SctDetector class.
