Optimizing higgs identification at the LHC

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Template overlaps are a class of infrared safe jet observables, based on functional comparison of the energy flow in data with the flow in selected sets (the templates) of partonic states. In a recent work with Leandro G. Almeida, Ozan Erdoğan, José Juknevich, Gilad Perez, and George Sterman, we have shown that template overlap offers the promise of a successful boosted Higgs tagger, have demonstrated how the inclusion of three particle templates allows us to test the influence of gluon emission and color flow, through their effect on energy flow, and have illustrated its use through the construction of partonic template observables.
