SVT Software Groups Home Page

Welcome to the SVT software groups home page

Hopefully you will find here everything you ever wanted to know about the SVT software. If you don't please mail me (Helen) and I'll try to add it.

Here's a clickable map of the SVT reconstruction scheme for fast access to the code you are interested in:

For more information on the SSD specific software go here

The Base Classes.

The SVT base classes are/will be used by all the SVT software.

Go to Marcello's home page for the SVT ONLINE

The Packages.

The name, readiness and synopsis of each of the SVT specific code packages are described below.

Readiness Coding:

- Unknown - Unwritten/out of date - Code being worked on - Code exists but hasn't been run/checked in a while - Code exists need tuning - Ready to rock and roll
