Moon analysis to test the directional resolution of a segmented spline algorithm in IceCube — •Sebastian Schindler, Thorsten Glüsenkamp, and Gisela Anton for the IceCube collaboration — Erlangen Centre for Astroparticle Physics (ECAP), University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany
In IceCube arrival directions of muon neutrinos are determined from resulting muon tracks in the detector. As muons from cosmic rays produce the same signature in the detector they can be used to test reconstruction algorithms. A calibration source of cosmic ray muons is provided by the moon, which produces an easy to observe localized reduction of the mostly uniform cosmic ray flux.
The directional resolution of a new segmented spline algorithm for muon reconstructions is tested by using the abundant flux of cosmic rays in a moon analysis. The current work using both experimental data and Monte Carlo simulations will be presented.
