Apps Status Report for February 15, 2010

Guide on Reporting Percentage Completed:

For software development tasks,

  • use 0% if the solution is still being designed;
  • use 25% if the solution's design is completed;
  • use 50% if the solution is implemented and tested within the Ticket branch;
  • use 75% if the implementation review is complete, the Ticket branch has been merged onto the Trunk branch, and the Ticket is closed.
  • use 100% if the affected Trunk packages are tagged and released.

For other tasks, still use these increments, but apply their meaning as best as possible.

Note: Please place an asterisk (*) after the percent if you updated this value in this report.

Other Activities

  • EA
    • Updating the EA Use Case and Activity model to correspond to the reverse engineered source with the help of the relevant developer;
    • Reverse Engineering the source, on-request, for the design reviews;
    • Providing detailed specification for EA plug-in to declutter logical diagram of superfluous utility classes;
  • Standards
    • Delivered C++ and Python Standards Checker script and procedure for integration into Buildbot-like automatic service.
    • Revision of C++ Coding Standards document;
    • Searching for suitable (i.e. public domain) new C++ coverage analysis tool since originally selected tool does not compile/link on the Ubuntu system used for DM Standards Checking (and I still don't like the output debris generated by gcov).
  • Miscellany
    • Commencing the inventory of the MACHO precursor dataset residing on NCSA mass store;

  • Met with Jeff during his visit to IPAC. Agreed to redirect short term IPAC effort to DC3b data validation and data user access. IPAC also given responsibility for user tools. SDQA system development and prototyping is being put on the back burner. Also discussed possible future reorg of DM.
  • Attended several DM design reviews. Provided Gregory with minor logistics support for these.
  • A group of LSST and IPAC folks viewed a demo of the DES Science Portal tool via Videocon.
  • Attended all of the standard meetings: AppsWG, DM PMC, LSST Mgmt, DC3b, etc.

Asked Serge Monkewitz to add the following new method to the SourceMatch? class in afw.detection:

double computeRmsRadialDistance(std::vector<SourceMatch?> const &matches);

This will be called by the WCS-verification stage.

Attended Science Portal demo and gave written feedback to Suzy Dodd.

Dialed into a few design reviews (pipeline skeleton, difference imaging, persistence).

Comments: I just reworded the goal here, FWIW. Substantial traction on the list of work items requires resolution of "SDQA rating" vs. "normal metadata" and a better understanding of format and access to the Simulator input information.

Created Trac pages with the dependency action items and another for our list of work items.

Other Activities

Attending many of the Design Reviews. Attended Science Portal Demo.

Other Activities

  • Identified acceleration and time as relevant factors causing large numbers of tracks
  • Study of SSM to identify reasonable acceleration limits
  • Major discovery: acceleration is greatly lower in lattitude if use celestial coordinates rather than RA,Dec.
  • Found that realistic acceleration limits alone do not constrain number of tracks sufficiently for our purposes.
  • Conducted study of DC3b cadence to determine usefulness of 15 and 20 day windows compared to the planned 30-day window. Either appears to be fairly good for our purposes!
  • Scheduled design review for DayMOPS
  • Wrote initial draft of dayMOPS design review, sent it to Lynne
  • Some discussion of possible use of GPUs for orbit determination, careful reading on one relevant paper
  • Continuing study with Matt Cleveland and Prof. Dave Lowenthal (UA) on studying methods of distributing linkTracklets. Attempted to use one model for computation time for a set of leaf known compatible leaf nodes but rejected it. Proposed new model.
  • Wrote a Python script which takes a set of detections and finds (nearly) the tracklets and tracks which would be find by findTracklets/linkTracklets as an evaluation/SDQA tool.
  • Contacted Jeremy Kubica about crashes in findTracklets, sent him some isolated data sets which cause this crash.
  • Registered for and arranged travel to UCLA for extension courses in Target Tracking
