What is Ploughshare ?

  1. Quick to use - a web based utility for the automated distribution of fast inperpolation grids for the high energy physcis community.
  2. Secure storage - registered users can upload grid files and corresponding standard format configuration files to describe the grids and physics processes and these are added to a central repository.
  3. Automatic distribution - a standard utility library will be provided to download any required grids automatically in user code.

A utility for the community Ploughshare allows users to share their grids, so it is important that the provenance of the grids is guaranteed. This is achieved by allowing only registered users to upload their validated grids. Subsequently however, anyone is free to download and use the grids as they wish.

Ploughshare is an open source project.
