Iterative Tracking: General Information

 

The general iterative tracking steps are outline below. The main idea of iterative tracking is to find different collections of tracks and remove them from the list of track candidates used in the next iteration/step. Only steps 0-4 are used in the online version of iterative tracking. Pixel tracks are used as seeds for iterative tracking, which produces full tracks.

Steps:

0: prompt tracks, high pT

seeds: pixel triplets (pT>0.6 GeV)

1: prompt tracks, low pT

seeds: pixel triplets (pT>0.2 GeV)

2: prompt tracks, high pT (recovery)

seeds: pixel pairs + vertex (pT>0.6 GeV)

3: displaced tracks

seeds: pixel triplets  (pT>0.3 GeV, d0<1.5cm)

4: displaced tracks - barrel

seeds: pixel-strip mixed triplets (pT>0.6 (0.4) GeV, d0<1.5cm)

5: displaced tracks

seeds: TIB, TID, TEC pairs (pT>0.7 GeV, d0<2.5cm)

6: displaced tracks (more displaced)

seeds: TOB, TEC pairs (pT>0.6 GeV, d0<6cm)

9: Muons

seeds: standalone muons (pT>2 GeV)

10: Muons

seeds: tracker muons (pT>10 GeV)
