Track-based alignment in the CMS detector [article]

Frank-Peter Schilling, F P Schilling
The strategy for track-based alignment of the CMS tracking and muon detectors is presented. After an overview of the data samples used, the general alignment strategy is presented, with a focus on the procedures envisaged at the start of data-taking in 2007/8. The three currently used alignment algorithms are discussed and the first results of their application on the CMS tracker are presented, as well as studies on the alignment of the Muon detector with tracks.
