What is it?

ROOT is a general-purpose framework that provides an object-oriented set of tools with all the functionality needed to handle and analyse large amounts of data in an extremely efficient way. It defines the data as a set of objects, and then specialised storage methods are used to get direct access to the separate attributes of the selected objects, without having to touch the bulk of the data.

Market surveillance use case

CERN has started a unique collaboration with leading market-surveillance experts to explore how particle physics could help to build future manipulation-detection techniques.
