Abstract
A description of the response of the NOMAD electromagnetic calorimeter to e lectrons and photons is discussed. In particular, the dependence of the two -dimensional shower shape on the angle and energy of the incident particle is parametrized by analytical functions. Some applications to the neutrino event reconstruction are also reported. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
