Conferences

There are a few conferences of interest for people working on tracking, alignment and vertexing:

If you are interested in any of these or you want to suggest a conference we've missed, please get in touch with us!

Summer 2010:

  • plots are here, explanations are here
  • VELO performance plots from the velo group can be found here
  • ST performance plots from the ST group can be found here

Tracking Strategy

Multi-pass tracking finding and fitting:

  • VELO track finding in 3D (since 2011: FastVelo)
  • Forward tracking: extension of the 3D VELO tracks to the T seeding stations (PatForward)
  • Seeding in the T stations (until 2010: TsaSeeding, since 2011: PatSeeding) (optional: run only on hits which haven't been used by PatForward. this option is OFF by default)
  • Matching of VELO and seed tracks (until 2010: TrackMatching, since 2011: PatMatching)
  • Downstream KShort tracking: tracks with hits in the TT and T stations (PatDownstream) (optional: run only on seed tracks which haven't been used in match tracks. this option is OFF by default) Since Run II, 25ns: PatLongLivedTracking
  • Upstream tracking: tracks with hits in the VELO and the T station (VeloTTHybrid since Run II).
  • Making of the set of "best" tracks with removal of track clones (until Reco13: TrackEventCloneKiller, since Reco13a: TrackBestTrackCreator)
The whole of the tracking strategy that is run in the Brunel reconstruction program is defined in the options file RecoTracking.py (RecoTrackingRun2.py in Run 2) in the Tf/TrackSys package (link to Tf/TrackSys in the gitlab repository).

A more detailed description of the tracking strategies and pattern recognition algorithms used is also available.
