Abstract

We describe several studies to measure the charged track reconstruction efficiency and asymmetry of the BABAR detector. The first two studies measure the tracking efficiency of a charged particle using τ and initial state radiation decays. The third uses the τ decays to study the asymmetry in tracking, the fourth measures the tracking efficiency for low momentum tracks, and the last measures the reconstruction efficiency of KS 0particles. The first section also examines the stability of the measurements vs. BABAR running periods.
