Tracking in a High Rate Environment

HERA-B, a fixed target experiment to study heavy flavour production in proton-nucleon interactions at HERA, has to cope with high particle densities. The reconstruction program for the main tracking system consisting of drift and microstrip gas chambers requires an efficient pattern recognition method. The method should be robust enough with respect to large occupancies and tracking detector imperfections like dead, inefficient and noisy channels. In this paper we present different track finding algorithms.
