Description

This report describes the activities of the nuclear physics group at Mississippi State University, which were performed under contract DE-FG05-92ER40726 with the Department of Energy. Under the contract, the nuclear physics group at MSU provided leadership for the Gammasphere Software Working Group (SWG) and developed software and software standards. The SWG held four workshops during the term of the contract to inform committee members and interested parties of development in software and computer technologies and summaries of the presentations and discussions were compiled for distribution. These summaries have been distributed to interested members of the nuclear physics community and copies ... continued below

Description

This report describes the activities of the nuclear physics group at Mississippi State University, which were performed under contract DE-FG05-92ER40726 with the Department of Energy. Under the contract, the nuclear physics group at MSU provided leadership for the Gammasphere Software Working Group (SWG) and developed software and software standards. The SWG held four workshops during the term of the contract to inform committee members and interested parties of development in software and computer technologies and summaries of the presentations and discussions were compiled for distribution. These summaries have been distributed to interested members of the nuclear physics community and copies are included with this report. SWG subcommittees were organized to address specific issues and reports were given to the full SWG at each meeting. The subcommittee on a ''standard format for histogram data'' developed a format that was presented to the Gammasphere Users' Group and has been provided to interested parties. Other subcommittees were organized to address issues of parallel computing and graphical user interfaces at GammaSphere. We worked closely with Robert Varner and Bill Milner at ORNL in adapting and testing the ORNL histogram display software (UPAK) for use on SPARC-based workstations. The software was ported by ORNL staff to the Solaris OS and tests were run at MSU. We also investigated ways to enhance the OpenLook compatibility and user interface of the ORNL display package. The SWG interacted closely with researchers at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL). A Mississippi State University (MSU) graduate student, Pete Varmette, worked at LBL during the summer of 1992 and assisted Robert Belshe in the development of the GammaSphere Liquid Nitrogen Control System. Mr. Belshe sat on the research committee to review Mr. Varmette's master thesis, which contains a fill description of this work and is included with this report.
