About the Authors
  • Now thoroughly revised and up-dated, this volume describes techniques for handling and analyzing data obtained from high-energy and nuclear physics experiments. Beginning with a chapter on real-time data triggering and filtering, the book describes methods of selecting the relevant events from a large background. The use of pattern recognition techniques to group the huge number of measurements into physically meaningful objects such as particle tracks or showers is then examined and the track and vertex fitting methods necessary to extract the maximum amount of information from the available measurements are explained. The final chapter describes tools and methods useful for the physical interpretation and presentation of results.

    • Genuinely thoroughly revised and up-dated; out of date material from 1st edition has been removed, many applications and examples replaced by more recent ones
    • Unique in compiling advanced methods from all steps in the data analysis, from electronic techniques to sophisticated statistical algorithms
    • Presents the experimenter with a collection of field-proven techniques to prevent him/her from 're-inventing the wheel', illustrated with numerous real-life examples
