Cuts Optimization

  • We tune the selection cuts in fast and full simulation by maximizing signal/background ratio for each step

Additional cut in fullsim

bbA

tt

Additional Cut (in FullSim)

  • Muons from A are mostly back to back in the phi plane (single body decay)

    Δφ-> 3.14

  • In the case of tt background this is not so pronounced -> broader distribution

Muons Δφ

Normalized number of events

  • The value of this cut is obtained through the same method for optimizing signal/background ratio

Δφ > 2.7


Summary

Summary

  • Study of the A(H) discovery potential in the A -> μ+μ-decay channel , using ATLFAST and fully simulated data

  • ATLFAST and Full simulation are in good agreement except for b-jet efficiency (better in fullsim) and Etmiss (correction applied)

  • Selection cuts were optimized leading to the improvement of the signal significance

  • Additional selection on pTbjet and Δφμμ used and improved signal significance
