H bb and h tt in atlas

H → bb and H → ttin ATLAS

Phys. Lett. B 716 (2012)

  • The Higgsparticlehasbeenobserved for

    the first time at LHC (by the ATLAS and CMS

    experiments) throughitsdecaysinto

    bosonpairs (ZZ, gg, WW)

  • Butwhatabout the Higgsdecays

    intofermions?

  • H → bb and H → ttdecays : important to

    establish the properties of the HiggsBoson

    in the fermionicsector!

  • This talk:

    ATLAS results for 4.7 fb-1√s = 7 TeV (2011) & 13 fb-1√s = 8 TeV (2012)

  • ATLAS publishedresultsalreadyavailable for 4.7 fb-1√s = 7 TeV (2011) :

Higgsdecayto b-quark pair

  • High branching ratio

  • FormH = 125 GeV BR(H → bb) ~ 58%

  • The searchfor H → bbisperformed in associated

  • production with W/Z bosontoclean the sample from

  • the hugemultijet background and have a clean

  • signature for triggering

  • The multijet background isreduced at the price of a

  • production mode (gluon-gluon fusion)

Search analysis s trategy

Search/AnalysisStrategy

  • SearchforHiggstob-pair in

    associated production with a Z or

    W±boson:

  • Better background rejection, goodsignaturefortriggering

  • The analysisisdividedintothreechannels (based on leptonmultiplicity):

  • Two (llbb), one (lnbb) or zero (nnbb) chargedlepton (l=e or m)

  • Cuts common toallchannels:

  • Two or threejets : first jet pT> 45 GeV, otherjetspT > 20 GeV

  • Twob-tags: 70% efficiency per tag (mistag ~1%)

  • ZH →llbb

  • Twoleptons

  • ETmiss < 60 GeV

  • 83 < mZ < 99 GeV

  • Single & di-lepton trigger

  • WH →lnbb

  • Onelepton

  • ETmiss > 25 GeV

  • 40 < mTW < 120 GeV

  • Single lepton trigger

  • ZH →nnbb

  • No leptons

  • ETmiss >120 GeV

  • ETmisstrigger

Analysis overview

AnalysisOverview

  • Signalover Background ratioincreaseswithpTbb

  • Toenhance the sensitivity, the analysisiscategorisedas a functionofpTV

  • 16 signalcategories:

  • 0-lepton: ETmiss [120-160] [160-200] [>200] GeV (2 jets or 3 jets)

  • 1 & 2 leptons: pTW/Z [0-50], [50-100], [100-150], [150-200], [>200] GeV

  • Recentimportantimprovements:

  • Cuts are optimizedforeachcategory (~30% increase in sensitivity)

  • Muonenergy (pT>4 GeV) addedforb-jets (~10% increase in resolution)

  • Additionalttbarbasedb-taggingcalibration (~50% reduction in systematics)

    • DetermineV+jets (b/c/light) and top scale factors

    • Scale factors are consistentfor the 7 TeV and 8 TeV data samples

      (Z+cfactorchanges due todifferent MC treatment)

  • Almostall SF ~1 : the MC simulationisperformingverywell !

  • Improvedunderstandingof background in recentanalysis:

    • Analyzing the 8 TeV data wediscoveredthat the V pTspectrumfalls

      more rapidly in data thanexpectedfrom MC

    • W + jets and Z + jets: 5-10% correctionrequired

    • Top bkg: 15% correctionrequired

Diboson production

Diboson Production

    • Profilelikelihoodfitperformed (with full systematics)

    • Allbackgrounds (exceptdiboson) subtracted

    • Allleptonchannelscombined, no separation in pTVbins

  • Dibosonpeakclearlyvisible

    in the data

  • Result in agreement with SM:

    • s/sSM = mD= 1.09 ± 0.20 (stat) ± 0.22 (sys)

    • Significance = 4.0 s

Backgroundestimation

  • The main background forallanalysiscategoriesis due to Z → ttprocess

  • Data drivenestimationof Z → tt :

    • Use Z → mm data and replace the m’s

    • witht’s from MC simulation (t-embedded)

    • Allotherobjects (jets, underlyingevent, etc)

    • are obtainedfrom data

    • Good agreement between data and MC

  • For VBF lep-hadcategory the estimation

  • ofZ → ttisperformedwith high statistic MC

  • sampleswithjet-selectioncuts at generator

  • level (VBF-filter), plus correction and

  • normalizationfrom data

  • Other background sources:

    • Z (→ee/mm) + jets, Top, di-boson

    • (estimatedfrom MC + correctionsfrom data)

    • Multijet and W+jets (data drivenestimation)

H→tt : mttreconstructionwithMissing Mass Calculator (MMC)

  • MMC is a more sophisticated versionof the collinearapproximation

  • Mainimprovement : requirethat the relative orientationsof the n’s and the other

  • decayproducts are consistentwith mass and kinematicsof a tdecay

  • Thisisachievedbymaximasing a probabilitydefined in the kinematically

  • allowedphasespaceregion

  • Thisresults in very high reconstructionefficiency (>99%) and 13-20% resolution

  • in mtt, depending on eventtopology and final state

  • Collinearapproximation (usedforlep-lep 7 TeV data with at least 1 jet) :

  • for high pTt’s we can assume that the n direction isalong the visible

  • decayproducts

  • Forlep-lep data at 7 TeVwith 0-jets the effective mass mtteff (the

  • invariant mass of the di-lepton and ETmiss system) isusedsince the performance

  • of the collinearapproximationisnotoptimalwhen the t-decayproducts are

  • back-to-back in the transverseplane
