Dot color scheme
by Whoandwhatitis moderator
The dots and the colors of the dots aren't really important for us in this project. You can find this in the FAQ.
Here's a relevant quote:
Q: What are those colourful circles or dots I see sometimes? - A: They are artifacts from the computer. Ignore them.
Also, the colors of many of the other elements of these pictures doesn't always matter and may not always be completely accurate. See here:
Q: Why are some lines a different colour? - A: The only colours of consequence are green (the muons coming from the center) and the red dashed line, which is not a track at all. Other than that, the colours don't mean anything specific, but are markers for that the computer thinks the lines come from the same vertex. (Read more about the colours and dots on the detectors below!)
I hope this helps you a bit. You did comment on a very interesting object, also.
Thank you for your contribution!
