PH4100 MSci Project - Simulated event samples

General comments

All samples for this project are simulated at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV and with the 2017 configuration for both the ATLAS detector and the LHC.

(Technical details: August 2019 ntuple production, with release 21.2.86; L2 ntuples, i.e. small ntuples, only 288 variables. All the necessary weights are already included in the ntuples. This includes, specifically, weight_normalise, therefore no need to calculate it on the fly.)
 The samples are all available on linappserv from the directory

Signal sample: ttH

The signal sample was generated with PowHeg + PYTHIA 8, and it includes all Higgs decays.

(This sample includes 3 DSIDs: mostly events from 34345 ("2l"), but also some events with two reconstructed leptons from 346343 ("0l") and 346344 ("1l").)

 

Background samples

The ttbar background consists of a top + anti-top quark pair, with additional jets. The sample was generated with PowHeg + PYTHIA 8 (5FS = five-flavour scheme). Note that "dil" in the filenames does not mean that only the dilepton final state was generated; it means that these are the ntuples for the dilepton analysis. This sample includes all of tt + light jets, tt + c-jets and tt + b-jets. The channels included in this sample are: "all hadronic", "non-all hadronic" and "dilepton"; the first two are orthogonal samples, but "non-all hadronic" includes "dilepton" events. For the dilepton analysis there are two main options: either use just the "dilepton" DSIDs, or use all three channels; for the latter it is therefore necessary to remove overlapping dilepton phase space - this is done using the truth_top_dilep_filter variable in the ntuples.

tt+bb

 13461914616 Oct  3 17:09 ttbb_AFII_17.root

This is a dedicated sample for the production of a top-antitop-quark pair plus a b and anti-b pair (4FS = four-flavour scheme). If this sample is used (which is recommended, as this is the main background) the overlap with the tt+bb events already included in the "ttbar" sample above has to be removed. This is done using the HF_SimpleClassification variable in the ntuples.
