Introduction

Introduction

  • Our VBF signal is

    WWqqWWq’q’:

qq

For high mWW, this is one jet with some substructure for cone ΔR =0.7 or kT R=0.5, and not quite 2 jets for cone

ΔR =0.4.

  • In this high mass case, pTW ≥ 300GeV whilst pTtag jet>20GeV.

  • W + 3jets is an important background.

  • Alpgen can make W + up to 6 jets.

  • Pythia produces W + 1jet as the hard process; extra jets can come from parton showers ( tag jets could be faked by ISR).


Samples

Samples

  • Generation cuts for Alpgen:

    • W decays leptonically: pTlep >100GeV, |ηlep|<2.5 ETmiss>100GeV, dR(l-j)>0.

    • pTjet>20GeV, |ηjet|<5, dR(j-j)> 0.7

    • njets = 3

    • …and then through Herwig / Pythia 6.323

  • Generation cuts for Pythia 6.323:

    • W decays leptonically

    • min pT of hard scatter (ckin 3) 250GeV

  • …followed by ATLFAST (11.0.42) with massive cone algorithm.

    5618 unweighted events for Alpgen: σ = 3.46±0.17 pb through Herwig

    σ = 3.29 pb through Pythia.

    100000events for Pythia: σ = 13.53 pb.


Jet variables cone r 0 7

Jet variables cone R=0.7

Required NJET>2, ptjet>20GeV, pt lepton>100GeV, ptmiss>100GeV, pt leptonic W>300GeV, pt hadronic W >300GeV.

Summary

Summary

  • Started a study of Alpgen versus Pythia for W+3jets as a background to high mWW VBF.

  • Possible similarities:

    • After lepton pT>100GeV, W pT>300GeV and tag jet cuts Pythia W+jets and Alpgen W+3jets show similar numbers and tag jet distributions.

  • Possible differences:

    • Alpgen shows a slightly harder pT distribution on additional jets.

    • dR(leptonicW, hadronicW)

  • The cuts used at generation are quite different between Alpgen and Pythia – it’s possible I haven’t completely removed those differences in my ATLFAST cuts.

  • Next:

    • Pythia 6.4 rather than 6.323.

    • more alpgen events, looser cuts, contributions from W+2jets, W+4jets?

    • generator level study

    • different jet algorithm

    • hadronic W cuts, central jet veto.
