Interactive Graphics in Data Processing: Analysis and display of physics data

by W. C. McGee, H. R. Penafiel, S. K. Howry
A group of programs, called SUMX, is used for statistically analyzing high-energy physics data by batch-processing techniques. Against this background, the paper discusses the first phase of a project directed toward placing the SUMX user on-line via a display console. On-Line SUMX provides a helpful interactive mode of computer use in an inherently difficult application area. The experimental environment of the data source is discussed. Presented are functions of component programs as well as the types of statistical analyses performed.
