The source for the detailed document (now called an "annex") was moved on March 30! It is now at in the folder annex-nd. Please follow the instructions at to reclone the repository.

Note Apr 6: I have now separated the different sections of the ND Reference design chapter for the 2015 CDR into individual files:

Under DUNE/cdr/volume-detectors find:

  • the file chapter-nd-ref.tex (it now contains a list of input commands)
  • figures directory
  • the folder nd-ref-sections

Under this folder find:

These are the files each of you will use for your portion of the summarized CDR text. 
To compile the volume, run pdflatex on chapter-nd-ref.tex, i.e., run: pdflatex chapter-nd-ref

If you identify with this statement: "ACCKKK! I DON'T KNOW LATEX!" then contact Anne.
