BEE-1-5 documentation page


General Information

Description: BEE is a data analysis framework for high-energy physics experiments. BEE has been developed for the HERA-B experiment, but due to its architecture it can also be used in other experiments, e.g. LHCb
The AFS location of the BEE software is under /afs/desy.de/group/hera-b/BEE
The official BEE homepage is http://www-hera-b.desy.de/subgroup/software/clue
BEE is currently maintained by: Wolfgang Gradl , Physikalisches Institut, U Heidelberg, Germany

BEE Project List

The BEE analysis software is due to its complexity organized in the following software-projects:
Project Version Description
arte /0-25 ArteTable / ArtePointer implementation.
cern /0-2 rudimentary CERN lib interface
clue /1-2 BEE event classes.
doc /0-38 Documentation for BEE compilation, gate, arte, geometry.
gate /0-26 STL compatible TClonesArray, TObjectArray.
gcombiner /1-15 A universal tool for combining objects.
geometry /0-19 Vector and LorentzVector classes (outdated)
grelation /1-27 A universal tool for object relations.
grover /0-3 Vertexing package, written by the MPI Munich group for ARTE
interfaces /0-23 All interfaces on which the BEE code is based.
pattern /0-31 Pattern based high-level analysis classes.
smatrix /0-21 High-performance Vector/Matrix/Vertex fit packages (based on template metaprogramming).
vt++ /1-35 C++ implementation of the FORTRAN package Vt from Th. Lohse. Now supplemented by the smatrix project.
