Title The geometrical reconstruction of bubble chamber tracks
Abstract The Geometrical Reconstruction Program of the Rutherford Laboratory bubble chamber analysis system is described in detail. The program uses a two-stage process to reconstruct the tracks in space. In the first stage a circle is fitted to the space points on the track found by the method of corresponding points. The results of this fit are used to fit a helix to the rays of all three views of the track. The helix is given a mass-dependent correction to allow for the slowing down of the particle in the chamber liquid. The program is built into a library and book-keeping system, which is also described.
