Data Types and Structures

The task of hitfinding is, at some level, one of grouping into structures and summarizing the raw ADC data. Here, we briefly discuss some definitions used in discussing the data, as well as the table structures employed before the track level.

Users who simply want an overview of the hitfinding methods may want to look over the definitions below, and skip the structures altogether.
