Talk 2: Real-time pattern recognition, fast tracking and performance evaluation

The High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) aims to increase the LHC data-set by an order of magnitude in order to increase its potential for discoveries. Starting from the middle of 2026, the HL-LHC is expected to reach the peak instantaneous luminosity of $7.5\times 10^{34}\text{cm}^{-2}\text{s}^{-1}$ which corresponds to up to about 200 inelastic proton-proton collisions per bunch crossing. To cope with the large radiation doses and high pileup, the current ATLAS Inner Detector will be replaced with a new all-silicon Inner Tracker. In this talk the expected tracking performance of the HL-LHC tracker is presented. Impact of tracking on physics object reconstruction is discussed.
