  3. The Challenges Automated reconstruction software not yet established (ICARUS, arXiv:0812.2373)

  4. The Road To Analysis Experiment & Simulation Common Data Format

    Reconstruction Pipeline Clustering Performance Analysis USA (LArSoft): MicroBOONE ArgoNEUT LBNE Europe: Neutrino Factory IDS LAGUNA LBNO Japan: 250 litre chamber Calorimetry Tracking Particle ID
  5. Reconstruction Algorithms Clustering DBSCAN OPTICS Cellular Automata conservative clustering Feature

    Extraction Corner Finding Track Fitting Kalman Filter Calorimetry Particle Flow
  6. DBSCAN* ‣ ‣ Density based clustering ‣ ‣ Neighbourhood (radius

    ε) around a point must have ≥ N min points ‣ ‣ Clusters formed from density reachable points *Sander et al., Data Mining & Knowledge Discovery 2, pp169–194 (1998) N min ≥ 5
  7. DBSCAN in ArgoNEUT Kinga Partyka (Yale/ArgoNEUT) colours represent clusters

  8. OPTICS* ‣ ‣ Extension of DBSCAN ‣ ‣ Clusters on

    all scales of neighbourhood ε ‣ ‣ ε scale can be tuned to minimise overclustering Ankerst et al., ACM SIGMOD Int. Conf. on Management of Data pp49–60 (1999) DBSCAN “overclusters” near vertex
  9. Cellular Automata ‣ ‣ Dynamical system with rules to update

    local state at discrete steps cluster cell 1 cell state 1 2 3 2 1 Rule: Increment state if neighbours consistent with straight line determined by max. angle θ θ ≤ θ max θ > θ max

  11. Key Point Detection ‣ ‣ Structure tensor of energy deposits

    can be used to identify interest points ‣ ‣ Foestner/Noble corner detection measure proton endpoint primary vertex δ electrons along μ track B. Morgan, JINST 5(07) p7006 (2010)
  12. Vertex Finding in ArgoNEUT ‣ ‣ Key point detection has

    been used to find vertices in ArgoNEUT events
  13. Particle Flow Calorimetry Latte simulation (Ben Morgan, Warwick) + Pandora

    PFA (Mark Thomson & John Marshall, Cambridge) 500 MeV neutral pion Lamu modeller + PandoraPFA reconstruction
  14. Do LAr-TPCs Dream of Electric Reconstruction? ‣ ‣ Reconstruction algorithms

    in development ‣ ‣ Key point finding critical for identifying features in ν interactions ‣ ‣ Focus reconstruction efforts towards phenomenology ‣ ‣ Warwick are contributing significantly to worldwide software efforts
