HARP (Hadron Production Experiment)
HARP, The Hadron Production Experiment at the Proton Synchrotron was a physics experiment at CERN that took data from 2000 through 2002. Its goal was to systematically study hadron production on a wide variety of nuclear targets. The data is used to help predict neutrino fluxes at experiments such as MiniBooNE and K2K, to understand the atmospheric neutrino flux, and to tune Monte Carlo simulations of particle production.
Analysis and results
Analysis of HARP data has been carried out by two independent groups, the second group calling itself HARP-CDP for "HARP-CERN-Dubna-Protvino". This group split from the main collaboration over "a deep split of opinion over quality of work, working methods, and professional ethics"
