Event Reconstruction for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is an
international collaboration focused on studying neutrino oscillation
over a long baseline (1300 km). DUNE will make use of a near detector
and neutrino beam originating at Fermilab in Batavia, IL, and a far
detector operating 1.5 km underground at the Sanford Underground
Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota. The near and far detectors
will use the LArTPC (Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber) technology
to image neutrino interactions. The single-phase far-detector
prototype, ProtoDUNE-SP, which is located at CERN and contains 0.77
kilotonnes of LAr, is currently the largest single-phase LArTPC in
operation (since September 2018); ProtoDUNE-SP serves as a test and
validation of the design for the single-phase far detector. In this
talk, I give an overview of event reconstruction in the single-phase
DUNE LArTPC detectors. Detector calibration and machine-learning
approaches to event reconstruction are emphasized, and first results
of event reconstruction at ProtoDUNE-SP are presented.
