Distance calculation methods used in linearization for particle identification in multi-detector arrays Conference Paper uri icon


  • Interest in the influence of the neutron-to-proton (N/Z) degree of freedom on multi-fragmentation has demanded an improvement in the capabilities of multidetector arrays as well as the particle identification methods. Excellent isotopic identification of particles through a linearization analysis is achieved with various algorithms for calculating the distance between a point and a polynomial function. A new Point-to-Curve method of distance determination is introduced. Descriptions of various methods as well as their performances are presented. © 2013 AIP Publishing LLC.
