The package is currently maintained by
Charlie Duke (CD) and Stephan LeBohec (SLB). It is made up of 5 main programs
of different origins:
The program used to read VERITAS data
was originally developed by John Quinn and Filip Pizlo. It has been modified
by Michael Daniel to generate the GrISU specific format.
- The shower development simulation
program used in GrISU is an older version of the kascade program taken from
the ISUSim package. CD made numerous changes in the I/O and we now refer
to it as kascade7. Glenn Sembroski (Purdue University) and Mary Kertzman
(DePauw University) originally developed the kascade code.Glenn Sembroski and Mary Kertzman's most recent
version compiles under Absoft-F77 and is thus VMS compatible. It is the
most developed and updated of all kascade version and it is now included in this package.
- The Cherenkov light emission
and propagation program (cherenk) was developed at ISU by David Carter-Lewis
and Gora Mohanty. CD introduced the timing and implemented
the control interface.
- The detector simulation program
(grisudet) was developed by CD and SLB. The program structure and some hardware
models are inspired from SLB's earlier work on the CAT imaging telescope.
- The analysis program (analysis)
was developed by CD and SLB.
- The final product analysis program (datareader) was originally developed by Pierre Colin and SLB but many corrections and additions were made by students at the department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Utah (Michelle Hui, Gary Finnegan, Paul Nunez and others).
