Meaning of Delphes "Track" outputs (on .root file)

Hello, I have a very newbie question to ask. It is more closely related to Delphes, but I thought I could use some help here.

I was told that Delphes does not reconstruct the trajectory of the particles, as it is a fast simulator. However, after looking at the root output from Delphes I realized that it contains many “tracks” and “tracking” data. For instance, there is a whole branch with the name Tracks.

So, what specifically does Delphes mean when it says “Tracks”?


Thanks for the post.

I second what you said about the nature of the question: it has little to do with ROOT, and perhaps some DELPHES experts will be able to answer in a more complete way.
