Tracking Subtask

The goal of this subtask is the development of pattern recognition and track fitting algorithms that are as much as possible independent from a specific detector configuration and can thus be re-used.
The task is carried out in the environment of the Linear Collider detector R&D by DESY and the OEAW. As there are various conceptually different tracking detector technologies under investigation – both for ILC and CLIC - the tracking software has to be highly flexible. This makes the Linear Collider tracking software an ideal test-bed for developing detector independent tools.
