Comparison between different algorithms to compute the arrival time using sampled signals. Starting from a simple threshold crossing, the time precision can be improved implementing a smarter discriminator (hysteresis, peak selection, interpolation, ... ) and time walk corrections (Constant Fraction, ... ) Real data acquired in a beam test will be used. Prerequisites: laptop, C++ knowledge, root
