The MICE Analysis User Software (MAUS) is the software framework used by the MICE collaboration to provide Monte Carlo simulation of the beam and detector responses (via GEANT4), both offline and online data reconstruction and various data analysis tools. It also provides a framework for collaborators to build their own offline data-analysis tools.

Adey D, Agarwalla SK, Ankenbrandt CM, et al., 2013, nuSTORM - Neutrinos from STORed Muons: Proposal to the Fermilab PAC
The nuSTORM facility has been designed to deliver beams of electron neutrinosand muon neutrinos (and their anti-particles) from the decay of a stored muonbeam with a central momentum of 3.8 GeV/c and a momentum acceptance of 10%. Thefacility is unique in that it will: 1. Allow searches for sterile neutrinos ofexquisite sensitivity to be carried out; 2. Serve future long- andshort-baseline neutrino-oscillation programs by providing definitivemeasurements of electron neutrino and muon neutrino scattering cross sectionsoff nuclei with percent-level precision; and 3. Constitutes the crucial firststep in the development of muon accelerators as a powerful new technique forparticle physics. The document describes the facility in detail anddemonstrates its physics capabilities. This document was submitted to theFermilab Physics Advisory Committee in consideration for Stage I approval.

Bravar U, Bogomilov M, Karadzhov Y, et al., 2011, MICE: the Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment. Step I: First Measurement of Emittance with Particle Physics Detectors
The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) is a strategic R&D projectintended to demonstrate the only practical solution to providing highbrilliance beams necessary for a neutrino factory or muon collider. MICE isunder development at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in the UnitedKingdom. It comprises a dedicated beamline to generate a range of input muonemittances and momenta, with time-of-flight and Cherenkov detectors to ensure apure muon beam. The emittance of the incoming beam will be measured in theupstream magnetic spectrometer with a scintillating fiber tracker. A coolingcell will then follow, alternating energy loss in Liquid Hydrogen (LH2)absorbers to RF cavity acceleration. A second spectrometer, identical to thefirst, and a second muon identification system will measure the outgoingemittance. In the 2010 run at RAL the muon beamline and most detectors werefully commissioned and a first measurement of the emittance of the muon beamwith particle physics (time-of-flight) detectors was performed. The analysis ofthese data was recently completed and is discussed in this paper. Future stepsfor MICE, where beam emittance and emittance reduction (cooling) are to bemeasured with greater accuracy, are also presented.

Asfandiyarov R, Bayes R, Blackmore V, et al., MAUS: The MICE Analysis User Software
The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) collaboration has developed theMICE Analysis User Software (MAUS) to simulate and analyze experimental data.It serves as the primary codebase for the experiment, providing for offlinebatch simulation and reconstruction as well as online data quality checks. Thesoftware provides both traditional particle-physics functionalities such astrack reconstruction and particle identification, and accelerator physicsfunctions, such as calculating transfer matrices and emittances. The codedesign is object orientated, but has a top-level structure based on theMap-Reduce model. This allows for parallelization to support live datareconstruction during data-taking operations. MAUS allows users to develop ineither Python or C++ and provides APIs for both. Various software engineeringpractices from industry are also used to ensure correct and maintainable code,including style, unit and integration tests, continuous integration and loadtesting, code reviews, and distributed version control. The software frameworkand the simulation and reconstruction capabilities are described.
Kyberd P, Smith DR, Coney L, et al., nuSTORM: Neutrinos from STORed Muons
The results of LSND and MiniBooNE, along with the recent papers on a possiblereactor neutrino flux anomaly give tantalizing hints of new physics. Modelsbeyond the neutrino-SM have been developed to explain these results and involveone or more additional neutrinos that are non-interacting or "sterile."Neutrino beams produced from the decay of muons in a racetrack-like decay ringprovide a powerful way to study this potential new physics. In this Letter ofIntent, we describe a facility, nuSTORM, "Neutrinos from STORed Muons," and anappropriate far detector for neutrino oscillation searches at short baseline.We present sensitivity plots that indicated that this experimental approach canprovide over 10 sigma confirmation or rejection of the LSND/MinBooNE results.In addition we indicate how the facility can be used to make precision neutrinointeraction cross section measurements important to the next generation oflong-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments.
