    Jet Flavour Classification Using DeepJet

    Full text link
    Jet flavour classification is of paramount importance for a broad range of applications in modern-day high-energy-physics experiments, particularly at the LHC. In this paper we propose a novel architecture for this task that exploits modern deep learning techniques. This new model, called DeepJet, overcomes the limitations in input size that affected previous approaches. As a result, the heavy flavour classification performance improves, and the model is extended to also perform quark-gluon tagging.Comment: 14 pages, 9 figures, accepted for publication in JINS

    We present the first study of charged-hadron production associated with jets originating from b quarks in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 5.02 TeV. The data sample used in this study was collected with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 27.4 pb(-1). To characterize the jet substructure, the differential jet shapes, defined as the normalized transverse momentum distribution of charged hadrons as a function of angular distance from the jet axis, are measured for b jets. In addition to the jet shapes, the per-jet yields of charged particles associated with b jets are also quantified, again as a function of the angular distance with respect to the jet axis. Extracted jet shape and particle yield distributions for b jets are compared with results for inclusive jets, as well as with the predictions from the pythia and herwig++ event generators.Peer reviewe
