The Program MAMMOTH was made to improve
the event reconstruction and aspects of
the current Tracking of DELPHI. MAMMOTH is looking for :

Some of our colleages think that a MAMMOTH is a dead ELEPHANT .

If your browser understands Java, you can see here that this is not true: MAMMOTH lives!

                                SOME DOCUMENTATION

(the manual is unfortunately not up to date; please have a look in the
  transparencies of the GSM talks below for latest changes)

Scanned transparencies of talks given in the GSM for V0 reconstruction and new tracking

 10 March 1999:  V0 reconstruction in MAMMOTH (PS file)
 28 April 1999   :  MAMMOTH and the new IDVD/VDONLY... tracking (PS file)

 Theses containing some description of the algorithms and physics applications
  for VDONLY tracking  and vertex detector dE/dx:
  Observation of the B* Dalitz Decay with the DELPHI Detector at the LEP Collider (W.Oberschulte gen. Beckmann)
  for hadronic interactions, kinks etc.:
 Messung der Produktionsraten von Sigma-, Bs und B+ Hadronen in Z-Zerfaellen (C. Weiser)

  Publications and conference contributions explicitely using MAMMOTH tools

  Sigma- production in hadronic Z decays

   First Observation of the B* Dalitz decay
