In order to further tune the NuMI model using NDOS data, we look at the distribution of muon trajectories in MC data of the NDOS. By making cuts on the energy a neutrino interaction puts into the hadronic shower, we look at only events in which 95% or more of the energy from the neutrino goes into the muon. This enable us to use the muon trajectory as a proxy for the neutrino trajectory, and therefore the position in the decay pipe.
