This paper presents an automatic method for data classification in nuclear physics experiments based on evolutionary computing and vector quantization. The major novelties of our approach are the fully automatic mechanism and the use of analytical models to provide physics constraints, yielding to a fast and physically reliable classification with nearly-zero human supervision. Our method is successfully validated using experimental data produced by stacks of semiconducting detectors. The resulting classification is highly satisfactory for all explored cases and is particularly robust to noise. The algorithm is suitable to be integrated in the online and offline analysis software of existing large complexity detection arrays for the study of nucleus–nucleus collisions at low and intermediate energies.
