Abstract

The high resolution silicon microstrip system integration with multiwire proportional chambers and the tracking algorithms of FOCUS, a photoproduction experiment located at Fermilab, was discussed. Various techniques to reconstruct Ks0 and λ0 decays in a multiparticle spectrometer were explained. The techniques of Vees and Kinks were combined and used in the reconstruction of ω- decays.
