====== Frank Krenrich's Comments ON VERSION 3.1====== {{:annie_whitepaper_v3.1.pdf|WHITEPAPER VER 3.1}}\\ [[wpedits|< Back to white paper edits page]] General comments: \\ 1) depending on the targeted audience, it might be good to have a glossary that lists most of the abbreviations used. Coming from another area of HEP, I would find that extremely useful. \\ \\ 2) The electronics section needs more work. For example, the trigger rate from cosmic muons needs to be confronted with the dead time estimate of the PSEC4 chip, leading to a basic strategy on how to design the trigger. Are you planning to include more details on the trigger? It would probably take a few more days to get some basic numbers for the trigger rates. What provisions are existent on the PSEC4 chip to form a trigger? Major:\\ Executive Summary \\ * line 64: '' … to measure the neutron yield of atmospheric neutrino interactions …'' however, the experiment is designed for measuring the neutron yield using a neutrino beam * line 258: ''… it is expected that more than 80% of all proton decays should not have an accompanying proton. '' While this is not necessarily in contradiction to the statement made on page 5, 1st paragraph: '' … proton decays are expected to produce neutrons less than 10% of the time'', there is a considerable numerical difference between both statements. Proposed Timeline\\ Q: what is the operational lifetime of the booster neutrino beam line?\\ C: we are already in FY2015, so any reference to FY2014 as a start date should probably be changed\\ Minor: Typos: 275: ''… incurs in …'' should be '' … incurs …''\\ 367: '' … achieved … '' should be '' …. achieved ….'' \\ 383: ''… multeplicity …'' should be '' … multiplicity …''\\ 548: '' … Table expectedratesANNNIEHALL ..
