ZZ Fusion Analysis

Neural Network training

We use the flavour tagging package LCFIVertex. This package consists of a topological vertex finder ZVTOP, which reconstructs secondary interactions, and a multivariate classifier which combines several jet-related variables to tag bottom, charm, and light quark jets.

Our steering file will contain the following LCFI component processors and a neural net trainer:

  <group name="JetFinders"/>
  <group name="MyTrueAngularJetFlavourProcessorCollection"/>
  <processor name="IPRPCutProcessor"/>
  <processor name="MyPerEventIPFitterProcessor"/>
  <processor name="ZVRESRPCutProcessor"/>
  <processor name="MyZVTOP_ZVRES"/>
  <processor name="FTRPCutProcessor"/>
  <processor name="MyFlavourTagInputsProcessor"/>
  <processor name="MyNeuralNetTrainer" type="GlasgowNeuralNetTrainer"/>

These processors have the following functions:

  • IPRPCut - selects Reconstructed Particles based on track parameters, number of hits etc.
  • PerEventIPFitter - finds the event Impact Parameter
  • ZVRESRP - vertex finder for reconstructed particles
  • ZVTOP_ZVRES - topological vertex finder
  • FTRPCut: - flavour tagging reconstructed particle cuts
  • FlavourTagInputs - from vertices and tracks calculates discriminating variables for the neural net
  • NeuralNetTrainer - trains the networks

The neural nets are saved as XML files in nnets/ and will be used for flavour tagging (next step). No slcio output is written at this time.

Flavour Tagging

  • TrueJetFlavour - determines MC flavour of reconstructed jets

A new file containing with these collections added is saved to be used in our analysis.
