FTPC STAR Database Entries



The values calculated in the FTPC calibration tasks are entered in the 
STAR offline databases:
      Calibrations_ftpc
      Geometry_ftpc

Before a new run year starts 
============================

Once Jerome anounces the initial Calibration/Geometry timestamp for the upcoming run year 
to StRoot/StChain/StMaker.cxx, put the following FTPC offline database tables into the 
database with the initial timestamp:
      
          Calibrations_ftpc/ftpcAmpSlope      <=    "perfect" gain table  

          Calibrations_ftpc/ftpcCoordTrans    <=    observedVertexOffsetY=0,0 
                                                    observedVertexOffsetX=0,0

          Calibrations_ftpc/ftpcGas           <=    temperatureDifference=0.0
                                                    defaultTemperatureWest=0.0
                                                    defaultTemperatureEast=0.0
                                                    adjustAverageWest=0.0
                                                    adjustAverageEast=0.0
Once the run starts
===================

           Calibrations_ftpc/ftpcElectronics   <=   uSecondsPerTimebin
           Calibrations_ftpc/ftpcGas           <=   temperatureDifference
                                                    defaultTemperatureWest
                                                    defaultTemperatureEast
                                                    minGasTemperature
                                                    maxGasTemperature
                                                    adjustAverageWest
                                                    adjustAverageEast
After calibration
=================
  Always necessary:
          Calibrations_ftpc/ftpcAmpSlope      <=    gain tables 
          Calibrations_ftpc/ftpcCoordTrans    <=    rotation offsets
  May be necessary:
          Calibrations_ftpc/ftpcElectronics   <=    tZero
          Geometry_ftpc/ftpcClusterGeom       <=    results of tuning FTPC cluster
                                                    finder
   Necessary if gas composition changes:
          Calibrations_ftpc/ftpcDeflection    <=    drift maps
                            ftpcVDrift
                            ftpcdDeflectiondP
