Title: Simulation of the transition radiation detection conditions in the ATLAS TRT detector filled with argon and krypton gas mixtures

Performance of the Transition Radiation Tracker (TRT) at the ATLAS experiment with argon and krypton gas mixtures was simulated. The efficiency of transition radiation registration, which is necessary for electron identification, was estimated along with the electron identification capabilities under such conditions.
