Reference Manual for the Algorithm Testing System Version 2.0
The Algorithm Testing System (ATS) is a software system which supports the Algorithm Testing and Evaluation Program for Coordinate Measuring Systems (ATEP-CMS), ATEP-CMS is a NIST Special Test Service for evaluating the performance of CMS geometric fitting software. ATEP-CMS uses the ATS to analyze such software. The ATS typically performs such an analysis by generating datasets, applying its own fitting routines to fit geometries onto the data sets, and comparing its own fit results to the fit results of the software under test for the same data. This report is a reference manual for the ATS. It documents fully the usage of the ATS, describes in detail the data generation and analysis capabilities of the ATS, and defines the naming conventions used by the ATS.
