Event sample

A sample of 7 central Landau AuAu events, generated by Ron Longacre, were used to study the performance with heavy ion interactions. In addition a sample of 1000 tracks with a flat distribution in in the range 0-40 GeV was also utilized.

Events were run through the STAR GEANT simulation. The output was treated with the standard STAR analysis shell (TAS). TPC space points were generated with the slow tpc simulator (tss). Subsequently clusters were found using the algorithm to be used in the third level trigger processors (i960). This is performed using the TAS package tdh.
