Tracking algorithms for the active target MAYA

Abstract : The MAYA detector is a Time-Charge Projection Chamber based on the concept of active target. These type of devices use a part of the detection system, the filling gas in this case, in the role of reaction target. The MAYA detector performs three-dimensional tracking, in order to determine physical observables of the reactions occurring inside the detector. The reconstruction algorithms of the tracking use the information from a two-dimensional projection on the segmented cathode, and, in general, they need to be adapted for the different experimental settings of the detector. This work presents some of the most relevant solutions developed for the MAYA detector.
