New (BSM) Physics Searches with Single Jets: Jet Substructure and Jet GroomingLPC @ Fermilab 11.18.10Steve Ellis

(See Also Jesse Thaler last week)

1Background/Assumptions:LHC is intended to find new stuff (BSM physics)

Hadronic stuff will be organized into jets

At 14 (7) TeV many interesting particles (t, W, Z, Susy, ..) will be boosted enough to be in a single jet

Want to use single jets in search for BSM physics

Want to distinguish jets with decays from QCD jets

Want to use jet substructure for this purposeLPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/102

Outline & IssuesBrief review of (QCD) jets

- defined by algorithms (no intrinsic definition)

- jets have substructure, including masses (not just 1 parton, 1 jet)Typically use Recombination (kT) jets

natural substructure, but also

algorithm systematics (shaping of distributions) contributions from (uncorrelated) ISR, FSR, UE and Pile-up

But can use Cone or Anti-kT as jet finder

LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/103

Warning!Outline & Issues (contd)Search for BSM physics in SINGLE jets at the LHC by separating from QCD; want generic techniques, which are robust under systematic effects Consider a variety of jet substructure measures:

1) masses (simply look for bumps) 2) angularities (single jet version of thrust-like) distribution

3) subjets found with jet algorithm with smaller size parameter, e.g., taggers top q, Higgs, or groomers that delete all but the leadingsubjets

LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/104Outline & Issues (contd)QCD yields a large but Smooth (limited structure) QCD background

But substructure (mass bumps) in signal can degraded by

algorithm systematics

uncorrelated UE and Pile-Up contributions

Need to clean-up or Groom the jets, e.g., PRUNING

- remove large angle, soft branchings

Validate with studies of boosted top qs, Ws, Zs at Tevatron and LHC

LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/105Jet Substructure a new tool for the LHC!

Two general approaches

1) Taggers that use specific decay properties, e.g., top quarks, W/Zs, Higgs, to predict jet substructure (subjets)

2) More generic jet grooming to let the underlying structure, e.g., mass, be manifest (even when dont know what it is, i.e., searches) and reduce impact of UE, PU and algorithm details

See the overview in the (immediately) forthcoming Proceedings of Boost 2010!LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/106LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/10Defining Jets Map the observed (hadronic) final states onto the (short-distance) partons by summing up all the approximately collinear stuff, ideally on an event-by-event basis. Need rules for summing jet algorithmStart with list of particles/towersEnd with list of jets (and stuff not in jets)E.g.,

Cone Algorithms, based on fixed geometry focus on core of jet

Simple, well suited to hadron colliders with Underlying Events (UE),but found jets can/do overlap

Recombination (or kT) Algorithm, based on pairwise merging to undo shower

Tends to vacuum up soft particles, well suited to e+e- colliders 77LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/10Recombination Algorithm focus on undoing the shower pairwise, Natural definition of substructureMerge partons, particles or towers pairwise based on closeness defined by minimum value of kT, i.e. make list of metric values(rapidity y and azimuth , pT transverse to beam)

If kT,(ij) is the minimum, merge pair (add 4-vectors), replace pair with sum in list and redo list;

If kT,i is the minimum i is a jet! (no more merging for i, it is isolated by D),

1 angular size parameter D (NLO, equals Cone for D = R, Rsep = 1), plus

= 1, ordinary kT, recombine soft stuff first

= 0, Cambridge/Aachen (CA), controlled by angles only

= -1, Anti-kT, just recombine stuff around hard guys cone-like (with seeds)

88LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/10Recombination Algorithm the good and bad newsJet identification is unique no merge/split stage as in Cone

Everything in a jet, no Dark Towers as in Cone

Resulting jets are more amorphous, energy calibration difficult (need area for subtraction for UE?), Impact of UE and pile-up not so well understood, especially at LHC but less of an issue for Anti-kT

Analysis can be very computer intensive (time grows like N3, recalculate list after each merge)

New version (Cacciari, Salam & Soyez) goes like N ln N (only recalculate nearest neighbors) , plus scheme for finding area and doing UE correction

They have been used and understood at the Tevatron Using Anti-kT at LHC, so well understood soon, but it does not provide useful substructure, but could find jets with Anti-kT and substructure with CA/kT

99LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/10Recombination Algorithm in action, here CA algorithm on QCD jet 10

Think of starting with calorimeter cells, recombine closest pair at each step leading to larger pT

For CA close in quantity (0.05 x 0.05) Cells with E > 1 GeV10Note: the details of the substructure (at each step) depend on the algorithmLPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/1011

But jet substructure affected by the systematics of the algorithm, and by kinematics when jet masses/subjet masses are fixed.23LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/10Systematics of the Jet Algorithm Consider generic recombination step: i,j p

Useful variables: (Lab frame)Merging metrics:

Daughter masses (scaled by jet mass) :

In terms of z, R, the algorithms will give different kinematic distributions:

CA orders only in R : z is unconstrained

kT orders in z R : z and R are both regulated

The metrics of kT and CA will shape the jet substructure.

Matched QCD, jet pT between 500-700 GeVSummary: Identifying Reconstructed Decays in JetsReconstruction of a decay can be hidden in the substructure Small z recombination unlikely to accurately give decay Small z recombinations also arise from UE and pile-up The jet algorithm significantly shapes the jet substructure less so for kT but has poorer mass resolution Proposing a method to deal with these issues: modify the jet substructure to reduce algorithm effects and improve mass resolution, background rejection, and heavy particle identification - pruning35LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/10Pruning :Procedure:Start with the objects (e.g. towers) forming a jet found with a recombination algorithm (kT, CA, Anti-kT)

Rerun with kT or CA algorithm, but at each recombination test whether soft large angle:z < zcut and Rij > Dcut

If true (a soft, large angle recombination), prune the softer branch by NOT doing the recombination and discarding the softer branch (bottom up approach)

Proceed with the algorithm

The resulting jet is the pruned jet36LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/10

Defining Reconstructed Tops Search ModeA jet reconstructing a top will have a mass within the top mass window, and a primary subjet mass within the W mass window - call these jets top jets

Pruned windows narrower, meaning better mass bump resolution - better heavy particle ID

Pruned window widths fairly consistent between algorithms (not true of unpruned), over the full range in pT47LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/10

Statistical Measures:Count top jets in signal and background samples in fitted bins

Heavy particle ID with the unpruned algorithm is improved when D is matched to the expected average decay angle

Pruning still shows improvements

How does pruning compare between fixed D = 1.0 and D optimized for each pT bin SD = SD opt/SD=1? Little further improvement obtained by varying D

Pruning improves both signal purity (R) and signal-to-noise (S) in top quark reconstruction using a QCD multijet background

The D dependence of the jet algorithm is reduced by pruning - the improvements in R and S using an optimized D exhibit only small improvement over using a constant D = 1.0 with pruning

A generic pruning procedure based on D = 1.0 CA (or kT) jets can Enhance likelihood of success of heavy particle searchesReduce systematic effects of the jet algorithm, the UE and PUCannot be THE answer, but part of the answer, e.g., use with b-tagging, require correlations with other jets/leptons (pair production), use more than one groomer, etc.

58LPC @ Fermilab S.D. Ellis 11/18/10Summary general:Systematics of the jet algorithm are important in studying jet substructureThe jet substructure we expect from the kT and CA algorithms are quite differentShaping can make it difficult to determine the physics of a jet

Should certify Groomers and Taggers in data by finding tops, Ws and Zs in single jets in early LHC running and with Tevatron data

Should study other shape variables, e.g., angularities, in data

How does the detector affect jet substructure and the systematics of the algorithm? How does it affect techniques like pruning? What are experimental jet mass uncertainties?

How can jet substructure fit into an overall analysis? How orthogonal is the information provided by jet substructure to other data from the event?Which tools work best when used together?Better theory tools for multiple scales, pJ and mJ SCET
