Abstract

Several methods of reconstructing a shower axis and methods of searching for the starting point of the shower are presented. They were developed for "thin" sampling position-sensitive calorimeters. For this purpose we used a Monte Carlo simulation of the interaction of electrons and protons with the silicon-tungsten calorimeter of the PAMELA satellite-borne experiment. After some adaptation, these methods could be applied for different types of calorimeters.
