Abstract

The paper describes a method of the charged particle identification, developed for the CMD-3 detector, installed at the VEPP-2000 e+e collider. The method is based on application of boosted decision trees classifiers, trained for the optimal separation of electrons, muons, pions and kaons in the momentum range from 100 to 1200MeV/c. The input variables for the classifiers are linear combinations of the energy depositions of charged particles in 12 layers of the liquid xenon calorimeter of the CMD-3. The event samples for training of the classifiers are taken from the simulation. Various issues of the calorimeter strip channels response simulation and their calibration are considered. Application of the method is illustrated by the examples of separation of the e+e(γ) and π+π(γ) final states and of selection of the K+K final state at high energies.
