The Algorithm and Software Group develops algorithms for event reconstruction in particle physics experiments. The algorithms are implemented and validated in the respective software frameworks of the experiments. Group members regularly publish articles in dedicated journals. Many developments have found internation acceptance.
Traditionally the focus of the research is on pattern recognition and statistical methods. In addition, calibration and alignment of tracking detectors are topics studied by group members.
Some developments have found applications in other fields of research, for instance proteomics (clustering of peptides) or Bayesian statistics (auxiliary mixture sampling).
The reconstruction of an event proceeds in several steps:
The research focuses on the experiments CMS and Belle. In addition, work has started on event reconstruction at the International Linear Collider (ILC).
Recent topics have been:
In addition, group members are active in the physics analysis of the CMS experiment.
Up to now, group members have contributed to the software of the following experiments:
