MCLimits Fitting Code: Tool for Measuring Sensitivity

The MC Limits fitting code, developed by Tom Junk for the CDF Collaboration, is a hypothesis testing tool. Making use of the Likelihood function to discriminate between two hypothesised theories, it is possible to utilise the output of the test to measure expected discovery and exclusion limits for new Physics.

This tool is currently utilised at both CDF and D0 at Fermilab for the combined exclusion measurements. This page will detail the use of the code at Glasgow as a tool for determining the sensitivity of the ATLAS Experiment to the SM Higgs Boson. Thus far, this tool has been utilised both as a tool to assess the sensitivity of a Neural Network analysis on the Higgs plus associated top channel and to assess the combined sensitivity of four low-mass Higgs channels in the mass range 110 - 190 GeV.
