Hggs-D meeting MPI 11/2006


Outline
Outline

  • VBF Fusion:

    • forward jet tagging

    • central jet veto: NLO with SHERPA, different underlying event / PS models

    • tau tagging

    • Zjj background estimate for Hfrom data

    • W+jets background studies (M. Rast, not shown here)

    • LVL1 trigger studies for Hinvisible

  • Other non-VBF studies not shown here

  • Plans/potential for collaboration

Forward Jet Studies(Iris Rottländer)

comparison of different jet algorithms (cone, KT with diff. par‘s), different generators (PYTHIA/HERWIG) and processes (dijet/VBF)

 efficiencies, fake rates, out of jet corrections

matching between truth jets (hadron level) and reco jets within a ΔR

different jet algos – eff. vs. eta and Pt

Different MC Generators and Topologies

Pythia QCD Forwardjets

Herwig QCD Dijets

Pythia 6.3 VBF H->tautau->ll

Herwig VBF H->tautau->ll

  • Jets from hard process found easier than jets from shower

  • Forward region: jets from VBF found easier than jets from QCD

  • Maybe slight dependence on generator (shower & fragmentation model)

Hggs-D meeting MPI 11/2006


Central jet veto nlo talea k chling
Central Jet Veto, NLO(Talea Köchling)

  • Goal: study effects of NLO on sensitivity esp. jet veto with SHERPA

  • Def.: 1st and 2nd jet  tagging jets, 3rd jet  apply veto

Signal: 3rd jet properties (including underlying event)

momentum: SHERPA3j>PYTHIA>SHERPA2JEt>HERWIG

rapidity: SHERPA agree well, HERWIG slightly wider, PYTHIA??

Survial probability w r t central jet veto
Survial Probability w.r.t central jet veto

Signal w/o underlying event

Signal with underlying event

Veto jets with Pt > x GeV)

Veto jets with Pt > x GeV)

  • SHERPA H+2j and H+3j agree well  „NLO“ effect seems small?

  • signficant difference among different MC generators

  • reason not yet understood

Survial probability w r t central jet veto1
Survial Probability w.r.t central jet veto

Zjj(EW) w/o underlying event

Zjj(QCD) with underlying event

Veto jets with Pt > x GeV)

Veto jets with Pt > x GeV)

  • SHERPA H+2j and H+3j agree well only for EW process

  • signficant difference in QCD process

  • reason not yet understood

Hggs-D meeting MPI 11/2006


Id for vbf h lh a veenendaal
-ID for VBF Hlh(A. Veenendaal)

  •  from VBF Higgs decay have relatively low pT

  • Check performance of ID of hadronic decays for this channel – tauRec and 1P3P

  • Look for best discrimination method against Wlepton + jets background

  • Own production (CSC not ready)  low MC statistics

Hggs-D meeting MPI 11/2006


Comparison taurec tau1p3p
Comparison tauRec/tau1P3P

avg. over all pT

10 GeV < pT < 20 GeV

  • Find best working point: tauRec better for pT>20GeV, 1P3P for pT<20GeV

  • Combine both algorithms?

VBF, H: determination of bkgr. from data (M. Schmitz)

  • Idea:jjZμμandjjZμμwith identical topology

    • muons are MIPS  same energy deposition in calorimeters (checked!)

    • only difference: momentum spectra of muons

  • Method:select Z  μμ events

  • „randomise“ μ-momenta according to Z   μμ4νMC (works!)

  • apply „usual“ selection and mass reconstruction

shape of background

can be extracted precisely

from data itself

towards mass determination:

- subtract BG prediction

- Gaussian fit  mass

Hggs-D meeting MPI 11/2006


Prospects for mass determination with limited luminosity
Prospects for mass determination with limited luminosity

30fb-1, only  mm decay

6 out of 8 fits fine

120fb-1,  mm decay

=30fb-1, ll decays?

all fits fine

Hggs-D meeting MPI 11/2006


Invisible higgs boson decays
Invisible Higgs boson decays

invisble Higgs decays: SUSY HLSP LSP, ADD, Majoron,…

95% CL exclusion

with 30 fb-1

VBF result assumes trigger on jets up to h = 4.9

VBF most sensitive, but how to trigger on 2 jets + missing energy?

 LVL1 trigger study for jets including FCAL

Hggs-D meeting MPI 11/2006


Ongoing lvl1 trigger study guilherme hanninger
Ongoing LVL1 Trigger Study(Guilherme Hanninger)

Goal: determine efficiencies and rates for various options of trigger menues

for combinations of ET miss + central jet + forward jet

“plain cuts”:

Hggs-D meeting MPI 11/2006


Estimation of lvl1 trigger efficiencies rates
Estimation of LVL1 trigger efficiencies, rates

topological cuts:

  • Maybe forward + central good for background rejection?

  • Gain from using topological cuts: re-define boundaries?

  • QCD: LVL1 output rates extremely sensitive to ETmiss

Hggs-D meeting MPI 11/2006


Plans collaboration options
Plans, collaboration options

  • Tools:

    • Forward jet tagging:

      • Continue jet efficiency, jet energy scale studies

      • Effects of pile-up, underlying event

    • Tau ID:

      • Check other background to VBF Higgs sample

      • Look for improvement in the few-10GeV pT region, revise LLH/NN with Higgs and its backgrd. samples

  • Analysis:

    • Study central jet veto

      • tune cuts to be less sensitive to MC models

      • Continue SHERPA studies

    • Continue invisible Higgs trigger studies: LV2, EF ?

    • Continue Zjj background studies: e-channel

    • Background studies (e.g. W+jets bg.)

    • Start HWW analysis?
