SSD and stange particle reconstruction
For the SSD Technical Proposal the impact of the SSD on the STAR capabilities to reconstruct short-lived strange particles has been studied. This work is summarized in the SSD Proposal and is described in details in this report.

The main conclusion of this study is that thanks to the gain in the number of reconstructed secondary tracks due to the SSD and the EST tracking method, the numbers of reconstructed K0 and Lambda are increased by a factor of 3. The following figures illustrate this result :
