Muon Sources and Spectra in a 500GeV (e+e_) Linear Collider

Includes an ongoing study of Muons from "in flight" decays of light mesons inside the SLAC "SD" tracking volume.

(II) Hadronic energy leaking into the "SD" muon detector.

The following profile plots show the fraction of energy deposited in each layer of the calorimeters. The simulated EM-Cal is as documented (30 layers), but the Had-Cal has an "infinite" number of identical layers so that all the hadron energy is eventually contained. The plots are such that all bins (EM + HAD) normalize to one (100%). The profiles are averaged over 5000 monoenergetic particles (single tracks). The integrated energy that is absorbed beyond the designed 34 layers of the HAD-Cal is accumulated in the 35th bin, as the percentual leaked energy.
