the standard model
The Standard Model

SM Building blocks

The SM is based on

SU(3)C X SU(2)L X U(1)Y gauge symmetry

Strong : QCDElectroweak

Gluon W±, Z / 

SU(2)L X U(1)Y U(1)Q

Electroweak Symmetry Breaking (Higgs mechanism),

Responsible for generating particle mass

the sm symmetry breaking
The SM : Symmetry Breaking

The potential is of the form

The 2nd choice does the spontaneous

breaking of gauge symmetry

The strength of the interactions of the

particles with the Higgs field determines

the mass of the particles

e.g. in case of Z boson :

success of standard model
Success of Standard Model

Success :

W, Z were discovered at SPS, CERN in 1980s

Tevatron, Fermilab discovered Top quark

(the heaviest among all) in 1995

Most of the SM parameters, like masses and

gauge couplings have been measured very precisely

at LEP, CERN and matching well with

SM predictions

Yet Unknown :

The only parameter yet unknown in SM is the mass of

Higgs boson : the fundamental ingredient of the model

Limits to the Higgs boson mass :

From Experiments :

Indirect limit : LEP precision EWK measurements :

191 GeV upper limit (at 95% CL)

LEP-II direct limit : 114 GeV lower limit

From Theory : bound from Triviality and

Vacuum stability

is there any new physics
Is There any New Physics?
  • THE SM has quite a few shortcomings, e.g. :
  • The SM is silent about the Gravitational force (the 4th fundamental force)
  • It does not explain the pattern of fermion masses
  • In SM, the higher order corrections to the Higgs boson mass diverges, unless a fine adjustment of the parameters is performed.
  • Possible candidates for New Physics :

Supersymmetry : predicts the existence of a super partner for each SM particles (with spin difference ½) , Extra dimension etc…

  • The LHC can explore all the possibilities upto TeV scale and can answer some of the unknowns. Also precision EWK measurements, mtop etc.

tt background estimation
tt~ background Estimation

Dilepton mass region

Signal : 75-105 GeV(Z)

Side band : 0-75 GeV & 105 – above (no Z)

NZ(tt) = (eZ(tt)/enoZ(tt)) X NnoZ(tt)

  • DNZ(tt)/NZ(tt)= 1/√NnoZ(tt)

NZ(tt) = expected no. of tt~ events in signal region

NnoZ(tt) = measured no. of tt~ events out side

signal region

eZ(tt) = selection efficiency of tt~ in signal region

enoZ(tt) = selection efficiency of tt~ outside signal region

DNZ(tt) = uncertainty of the expected number of tt~ events in the signal region.

Uncertainty on eZ(tt)/enoZ(tt) is negligible compared to the statistical uncertainty on NnoZ.

Assuming side band contains only tt~ background. Other possible backgrounds are negligible



Uncertainty due to Background and double b-tagging.

NZbb and DNZbb are determined as follows.

NZbeforeb-tag = NZjj + NZcc + NZbb

NZafterb-tag = elX NZjj + ec X NZcc + eb X NZbb


NZbeforeb-tag = measured number of Z/g* → ll

events after all selections except b-tagging under

Z mass peak (75-105 GeV). Contribution of tt~ is

negligible (~1%).

NZafterb-tag = measured number of Z/g* → ll

events after all selections including b-tagging with tt~


NZjj is unknown number of ll+jets (u, d, s, g) events before

double b-tagging.

NZcc is unknown number of Zcc events before double b-tagging.

NZbb is unknown number of Zbb events before double b-tagging.

eb, ec, elare the efficiency of double b-tagging for Zbb, Zcc and Z+jets events

( Ratio of number of events before and after double b-tagging)

(after all selections except b-tagging)

(CMS approved result)

Why do we need It :

b-Jets in final state of many processes at LHC

b quark fragmentation function is different than

light quark and gluon

Production and decay of heavy hadrons in the b-jet

Part of the energy will be carried by neutrinos

in semi-leptonic decays.

c1pxb1 + c2pxb2 = -pxZ

c1pyb1 + c2pyb2 = -pyZ

c1 = (pyZpxb2-pxZpyb2) / (pxb1pyb2-pyb1pxb2)

c2 = (pyZpxb1-pxZpyb1) / (pxb2pyb1-pxb1pyb2)

c1 and c2 are mere scale factors

Assumption :

Exact pT balance in the event

(but there is effect of radiated jets)

Jets reproduce the parton direction :

It will be exactly 1

Measured pT balance between di-b jets and di-leptons

The effect of background on pT balance is small ( < 1 %)

(if we fit around the peak)

Physics meeting, CMS Week


Extraction of energy corrections

Because of ISR,

Z boson and two

b quarks are not

perfectly balanced

in the transverse

plane. Jet veto does

not reduce completely

this effect.

When the jet

deviates from

the original b-quark

direction that error

propagates in the

pT balance equation

and gives a wrong

correction coefficient


Getting the functional form:

10 fb-1 “data”

10 fb-1 “data”

S and S+B points are within

~ 2 s stat errors

Physics meeting, CMS Week


How correction function works on bbZ events :

As a first test, the b-jets in

the same gg->bbZ process

has been corrected using this

correction function.

The plot shows pT ratio of

Z boson to that of combined

two b-jets, dashed plot is for

uncorrected jets and solid plot

is for corrected jets.

The correction restores the

pT balance and also makes

the distribution narrower

compared to uncorrected jets.

Physics meeting, CMS Week


How correction function works on h->bb in

tth, h->bb, W->ln events :

- restore Higgs boson mass to nominal value

- improve resolution by ~ 25 %

  • Studying cosmic physics is not CMS aim : not designed for it.
  • But it helps understanding the detector by measuring this which has been measured very precisely in earlier dedicated experiments and also confirms CMS capability.

arxiv:0803.1154 (hep/ph)

(part of 2007 Les houches study)

Because of the suppressed H1ZZ coupling, LEP could not exclude the presence of

a light Higgs boson at low tanb (~ 3.5 to 10)

Because of the suppressed H1VV coupling one of the pseudo-scalar Higgs state is very light

Since there is correlation between the mass of charged Higgs and that of the pseudo-scalar Higgs state in MSSM, => a light charged Higgs, with MH+< Mtop .

The traditional decay mode H+->tn is suppressed over an order of magnitude.

(LEP Higgs working group, hep-ex/0602042)

The two closest quarks in

the event fall very close to

difficult to reconstruct 6-jets

in the event.


full event reconstruction
Full Event Reconstruction
  • Leptonic decayed W was reconstructed from lepton and missing ET. The z-component of missing energy was calculated using W mass constraint. This yields real solutions in 66% events. Events with imaginary solutions are rejected. There are two possible candidates for each leptonic W.
  • Hadronic decayed W was reconstructed from jets not tagged as b-jets.

All jet pairs with invariant mass within mw ± 20 GeV were considered as possible candidates for W.

  • Two Tops were reconstructed simultaneously from 4 b-Jets, two leptonic W candidates and N (any number) possible hadronic W candidates. The jets and W were assigned to Tops by minimizing

DM = sqrt( (mtop1 – mtop)2 + (mtop2 – mtop)2 + (mW (hadronic) – mW)2 )

where mtop1 = 1 b-Jet + 1 W

mtop2 = 3 b-Jets + 1 W ,

mtop = 175 GeV, mW = W boson mass.

events with mtop1 and mtop2 within mtop ± 30 GeV were selected.

Systematic uncertainty on tt+jet background = 22.5%

Signal significance s = S/√(B+DB2) = 110 / √(263 + 592) = 1.8

Large syst. uncert. dut to

b-tagging, JES and

MET scale

The theoretical uncert.

on LO cross section

of tt+≥2jets is ≥50%

MH1 = 51 GeV

All 3 possible combination of

b-Jet pair out of 3 b-Jets from

2nd Top

The analysis was limited by the unavailability of

sufficient background events.



The process, Zbb, Z -> ll has been studied aiming for the first LHC data. The cross section of this process can be measured with first 100 pb-1 of data within 30% uncertainty .

Zbb, Z->ll process provides a data driven technique to evaluate dedicated b-jet energy corrections with higher integrated luminosity.

A study is being carried out for the measurement of Cosmic muon charge ratio as function of zenith angle

The performance of calorimeter response subtraction method for charge paticles in Jet Plus tracks algorithm has been studied using the Test Beam data (a data driven method which could be used to correct b-jets in Zbb).

Studied the possibility of discovering a light Higgs in CPV MSSM model in higher int. luminosity. The study is limited by the unavailability of large background statistics (large stat. uncert.) and also large systematics. The systematic uncertainty can be reduced with data driven background measurement.

A trigger study for H+ -> tn channel was performed with the updated MC datasets for the Physics TDR.
