Luiza  v03-01

Welcome to the Luiza documentation page. This is the place where you can find some explanation and examples of how to run GLORIA analysis programs within Luiza.

If you use Luiza in your analysis, please acknowledge it by using the reference to:
A.F. Zarnecki et al., Analysis framework for GLORIA, Proc. SPIE 8454, 845408, 2012.

Luiza framework was based on the Marlin package developed by Frank Gaede and Jan Engels from DESY for the ILC data analysis.
Please acknowledge their effort by refering to:
F. Gaede, Marlin and LCCD: Software tools for the ILC, Nucl.Instrum.Meth.A559:177-180,2006.

The idea (and large parts of code) taken from Marlin is that every computing task is implemented as a processor (module) that analyzes the data stored in a gloria::GloriaDataContainer structure and created additional output is also added to that collection. The advantage of such a modular approach is to keep things as simple as possible. Every single step of the full analysis chain that goes eg. from raw images to light curves can be processed step by step and the output of each step is still self consistent and can be fed in to the next step without any manipulation. Dedicated processors can also be included to read data from local file or external file server, access databases as well as to store analysis results. FIT image collections as well as tabular data collections can be stored. The framework allows to define the processors (and their order) that are executed at runtime in a simple XML steering file. Via the steering file you can also define named parameters (as a string, float, int - single and arrays) for every processor as well as for the global scope. By using the framework users don't have to write any code that deals with the IO they simply write processors with defined callbacks, i.e. init(), processData(), check(), end().
