Fast b tagging at L2

Sascha Caron (NIKHEF)

  • … using the Silicon Track Trigger (STT)
  • Methods to do a very fast b tagging
  • Some first results
  • and a proposal for a L2 algorithm

  • hardware installed, working and STT info is implemented in v13 test

trigger list

  • STT simulator agrees well with hardware
  • STT output correlates well with D0 reconstruction

Time to think about using the STT improved

L2 track information for b tagging

Sascha Caron (NIKHEF)

  • STT information for Monte Carlo events gained using a modified trigsim

t04.05.00 (with p17.01.00 STT routines)

and trigsimcert to get the root tuple

  • Events used are the “usual” sets for b tagging


QCD: pt>40 GeV file with 10000 events (id 8791)

Z-> bb: 10000 events (id 8845)

Z-> cc: 1000 events (id

Top-> all jets

Z-> bb with 12 multiple interactions : 1000 events

Pdf derived using

Kernel estimation

Each sample point

is smeared by pulling

10000 sample points

out of a Gaussian with

a width optimized as

a function of S

Probability for a

track to come from

the vertex is just

the integral of the

pdf from S to inf.

Sascha Caron (NIKHEF)

lm likelihood method
LM (likelihood method)
  • Derive probability density function of the track significance S for signal (Z) and background (QCD) events
  • Use all “good” tracks with a scaled chi2<5
  • Idea : Store

R(S)=pdfSignal(S)/ pdfbackground(S)

in a lookup table for S (256 entries)

Loop over all “good” tracks i and derive the product of R

Derive a Likelihood as a descriminant:

mulm method
MULM method
  • Significance is heavily dependent on

the goodness of the track fit

  • Goodness the track fit given by scaled

chi2 (less pt dependent)

Idea: Include chi2 information in discriminator by using 2d p(S,chi2) pdfs

This degrades tracks with large chi2 while still

Using the full information provided by the STT.

High energy ep collisions at HERA are a unique testing ground for the SM

Various searches for new physics are performed (model independent and dedicated)

Some interesting events are found

… and HERA 2 has just started !
