### TABLE 6.2 Time performance (in seconds) of cone-beam TMA-ART for the different constit- uents (tasks) of the program flow chart given in Figure 6.5. Each number represents the wall- clock time, compounded over one iteration (80 projections of 1272 pixels each, reconstructing on a 1283 grid). The percentage of the computational effort of each task with respect to the total time is also given. The timing were obtained on a SGI Octane with a R10000 CPU.

The cuts in the lower part of the table are used to select e+e? !

In PAGE 8: ... To test the consistency of the measured photon energy, the following cross{check is performed: the event is clustered into two jets and the energy of the radiative photon is reconstructed from the angles between jets j,k and photon i through the following equation: EW = j sin jkj j sin jij + j sin ikj + j sin jkjEcm (3) This reconstructed energy is required to coincide with the photon energy measured by the calorimeters in the range E ? 10 GeV lt; EW lt; E + 5 GeV.
