Introduction to Helical Track Manipulations
JLC Physics Group
KEK, Tsukuba 305, Japan


Techniques for helical track manipulations are reviewed in an introductory fashion, aiming at applications to collider experiments equipped with tracking detectors in a uniform magnetic field. The topics include numerical treatments of track fitting, track extrapolation, track linking, and vertexing, as well as an analytic approach valid in high momentum limit.
