The course is intended for graduate students and starting postdocs who have programming experience but have not developed software within the framework of a large computing project. The course focuses on programing reconstruction software using tracking reconstruction in C++ as an example. The course is otherwise general and applies to programing problems in any large experimental particle physics project.

Course prerequisites:
  • Students should have introductory level experience in C++ programing.
  • Students should have familiarity with the process of compiling, linking and running programs in a UNIX environment
  • Students should have familiarity with the physics of charged particle trajectories in magnetic fields
  • For students who need to learn C++ programing before the course an excellent book is Accelerated C++ by Andrew Koenig and Barbara Moo
Registration is limited to 70 students only
