The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) will be upgraded to further increase the instantaneous rate of particle collisions (luminosity) and become the High Luminosity LHC. This increase in luminosity, will yield many more detector hits (occupancy), and thus measurements will pose a challenge to track reconstruction algorithms being responsible to determine particle trajectories from those hits. This work explores the possibility of converting a…

This work demonstrates that, in terms of efficiency and purity, the same physics performance of the LHC tracking algorithms can be achieved, as increasing track density decreases the purity of the QUBO track segment classifier.
