Workbook for BaBar Offline Users

Elephant Welcome to the BaBar Offline Workbook!

This Workbook is intended to introduce members of the BaBar collaboration to the world of BaBar offline analysis. The information is presented in the form of a workbook, a connected series of exercises. Imagine the world of BaBar offline software as a workshop full of tools. This Workbook has the user pick up each tool in turn, do something simple and useful with that tool, and then put that tool down and move on to the next.

The average new user should require about two weeks to complete this course. You will need access to a unix computer running BaBar software, and to the internet to view the Workbook pages.

To begin, please read the Introduction to find out how to use the Workbook.

Good luck and happy workbooking!
