Track finding with deformable templates - the elastic arms approach

Ohlsson, Mattias LU ; Peterson, Carsten LU and Yuille, Alan L. (1992) In Computer Physics Communications 71(1-2). p.77-98
Abstract

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. © 1992.
