Cosmic Rejection

... from the simulation document ...

Antihydrogen annihilation identification in ALPHA crucially depends on the software capability to reject background events, i.e., cosmic rays. Given that the ALPHA-g detectors offer more information than what was available in ALPHA, new and more sophisticated algorithms will be developed to remove backgrounds events. Two types of tools will be deployed: “online” software aimed to monitor antihydrogen production and “machine learning algorithms” to eliminate background from the physics measurements.
