Projection of muons from front face of gunbarrel back to beginning of 8-inch pipe. Muon energy .GT. 0.5 GeV at gunbarrel. First page (black dots): "Dirt muons" (More than 0.5 GeV energy loss before hitting gunbarrel. Second page (red): "clean" muons (less than 5 MeV energy loss). Green circle: Outline of pipe wall. Blue circle: maximum collimator acceptance.

Same as above, with helium in pipe. Note that this is based on 36% of the statistics above. (Also, each clean muon on average carries about 5 times the weight of each dirt muon.)

Radius-squared of upstream muon projection to beginning of 8-inch pipe, same cuts as above: AIR and HELIUM. Note that the collimator effectively selects muons with R**2<51 cm in this projection. Also, the entries are properly weighted.

Muon gas versus kaon decay Monte Carlo studies:

Muon angle and radii at gunbarrel, origin versus energy loss in gunbarrel.

The following files (Color codes for the first four plots are explained on the first page) show:

1) Y vs. X position at Z=-1850 cm -- near opening
in decay pipe -- for muons with p.gt.0.5 GeV which hit gunbarrel at R.lt.2cm;
2) Radius at Z=-1850 for same muons.
3) Radius**2 at Z=-1850 vs. tan(theta) for same muons.
4) Radius**2 at Z=-1850 for same muons.
5) Radius**2 at gunbarrel (Z=-200) for non-dirt muons with P.gt.0.5 GeV.
6) Radius**2 at gunbarrel (Z=-200) for non-dirt muons with any momentum.
7) Radius**2 at gunbarrel (Z=-200) for any muons which hit gunbarrel.
FILES: Muon gas MC, Kaon decay MC (now full statistics).

For the three kaon-decay muons which make it down the 0.5-cm gunbarrel hole, this plot shows the Y vs. X positions where the muons were placed in the 8" tube.
