An Investigation of the ATLAS Discovery Potential for Charged Higgs Bosons in the Tau Decay Mode Applying an Iterative Discriminant Analysis Method
2008 (English)Report (Other academic)
Charged Higgs bosons are predicted in models beyond the Standard Model, for example in two-Higgs-doublet models and specifically in Minimal Supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model (MSSM). We have applied an Iterative Discriminant Analysis (IDA) method with the aim to study how the use of this multivariate method can improve on the sequential-cut-based method. The IDA method has been used to optimize the signal efficiency and background rejection in a charged Higgs boson discovery analysis for Higgs masses in the range 165 GeV to 600 GeV. The analysis is based on high-statistics Monte Carlo data and a fast detector simulation. The performance of the IDA results is compared with that of a recent sequential-cut-based analysis.
