In science:

A small fraction of events have clusters with a number of hits greater than expected, given only the track tra jectory and diffusion.

Distribution of reconstructed θc values for this event hits, using the particle track parameters.

The events at ∆t ∼ 0 are produced by two parallel tracks.
Test results of a prototype designed to detect horizontal cosmic ray flux
The full event information, including tracks, is available, but some of the cuts used { hadronic/electromagnetic energy fraction and calorimetric isolation { use only calorimetric information.
The CMS High Level Trigger
In addition, only events where a track can be made from the pixel hits of the Level-2.5 candidate are used.
The CMS High Level Trigger
For events where one or more of the photons has converted in the tracker, the track segment and the ECAL cluster can be used to locate the vertex.
The CMS High Level Trigger
Figure 40 shows the e–ciency of the Calorimeter+Pixel track Tau trigger selection for the signal and for QCD di-jet background events at low and high luminosity.
The CMS High Level Trigger
The Track Tau trigger CPU time distribution is shown in flgure 43 for Higgs and QCD di-jet background events at low luminosity.
The CMS High Level Trigger
The time required by the Track Tau trigger at high luminosity is much larger and is currently estimated at »1 s/event.
The CMS High Level Trigger
However, making use of the Calo+Track Tau Trigger selection, this time will be reduced to less than 400 ms/event. A further improvement is expected with the use of a regional pixel reconstruction.
The CMS High Level Trigger
Furthermore, the optimization of the tracking code indicates that it can be applied to the full Level-1 event rate at both low and high luminosity.
The CMS High Level Trigger
In principle, the drift time difference between any two points of the pro jected tracks allows to reconstruct the geometrical topology of the events.
