KM3 Physics and Software
This part of the effort is aimed at three major goals
Determine the Science of Interest and Return
Simulations of events/physics and
Software for reconstruction of events,
display of events, etc.
Current Status of Effort
Detailed MC (generates OM hit distributions) Complete
Stage 1 (particle generation) complete
Stage 2 (track / OM hit generation) Very far along
Stages 3 and 4 (PMT physics, triggering) Just beginning
Stage 5 (Reconstruction) Not yet started
Event Display/Visualization yet started
The KM3 software effort has for its goals the following outputs
the Monte Carlo program, documentation, major results and test cases
Simulation of the potential results from a km-scale neutrino detector
Muon energy resolution
Electron energy resolution
$\nu_\tau$ energy resolution and flavor separation
Estimate on the density of detectors (OMTs) needed to detect WIMPS
and other items of HEP interest.
