Track finding with deformable templates - the elastic arms approach
Summary, in English
A novel algorithm for particle tracking is presented and evaluated. It is based on deformable templates that converge using a deterministic annealing algorithm. These deformable templates are initialized by Hough transforms. The algorithm, which effectively represents a merger between neuronic decision making and parameter fitting, naturally lends itself to parallel execution. Very good performance is obtained for both non-magnetic and magnetic tracks. For the latter simulated TPC tracks from the CERN DELPHI detector are used.
