Total yield:

What can we do to improve it

What can we do to improve it?

  • Include PID in the selection

  • Use NN to discriminate signal from background

  • Add new decay modes

Including pid in the selections

Including PID in the selections

BsDs Ds K*0K K*0 K has reflection from

B0D D Kpp when you give K mass to p

Standard analysis use

D+ veto:

|MKpp – MD+|>24 MeV

Including pid in the selections1

Including PID in the selections

Aart proposal:

|MKpp – MD+|>18 MeV OR CCL0


Give this to NN

Johannes idea:

LR cut event by event

increases Ds 1640

In progress the Bs

significance evaluation

Neural network selections

Neural Network selections

B. Casal, K. Anikeev


  • Train NN to separate signal from bckg (side bands)

  • Optimize to maximize

  • Fit mass distribution using the actual mixing fitter

Rectangular cuts

NN cuts

Increase 33% like adding 78% of more data

  • Large yields (same order of fully reconstructed)

  • High k-factor, lose soft g/p0

  • Lower S/B

Semileptonic decay modes

Semileptonic decay modes

V. Tiwari, G. Gomez-Ceballos

  • Improve event selection including PID BsDslx:

    • Dsfp combinatorial bck reduce by factor 2

    • Ds K*K yield increased by factor ~2.5 and

      combinatorial bck reduced by factor 2

  • Include l+SVT dataset

  • Remove the ct* cut

Noticeable gain

Donatella Lucchesi



  • The number of events can be increased by including

  • new decay modes, partially reconstructed events

  • and by optimizing cuts.

  • Plan for the summer:

  • Include partially reconstructed modes and optimize cuts.

  • The actual gain on Dms significance will be the

  • combination of all the effect.

  • Expected improvements on sA:

  • 1.3 for the hadronic decay modes cuts optimization

  • “Something” for semileptonic decays

  • Under evaluation for adding partially reconstructed

  • hadronic decay
