Abstract

Gamma-ray reconstruction from Cherenkov telescope data is multi-task by nature in astrophysics. The image recorded in the Cherenkov camera pixels relates to the type, energy, incoming direction and distance of a particle from a telescope observation. We propose γ-PhysNet, a physically inspired multi-task deep neural network for gamma/proton particle classification, and gamma energy and direction reconstruction. We compare its performance with single task networks on Monte Carlo simulated data and demonstrate the interest of reconstructing the impact point as an auxiliary task. We also show that γ-PhysNet outperforms a widespread analysis method for gamma-ray reconstruction. Finally, we study attention methods to solve relevant use cases. All the experiments are conducted in the context of single telescope analysis for the Cherenkov Telescope Array data analysis.
