one line description
A 2D clustering algorithm that attempts to ID shower and track like objects

The fuzzy cluster algorithm attempts to construct track-like and shower-like objects based on 2D hits. The algorithm relies on performing a Hough transform to identify lines. Around each line, pattern recognition is performed to identify if each line lies in a shower-like region. Following that, a series of merging steps are performed to join lines together to form showers or tracks. After the merging of lines, the remaining 2D hits are either merged into a shower-like cluster if they are in a shower-like region or left alone.
