As an example, reconstruction of an electron includes the reconstruction of a cluster in the electromagnetic calorimeter, the matching of hits in the pixel detector and the subsequent reconstruction of a full charged particle track in the tracker.
The CMS High Level Trigger
The idea of partial event reconstruction has been embedded in the CMS reconstruction code from the very beginning.
The CMS High Level Trigger
Starting from the regional seeds, a track reconstruction algorithm based on the Kalman fllter technique, is used to reconstruct tracks inside the selected region of interest.
The CMS High Level Trigger
