Training of an extended b-tagging algorithm with deep neural networks. — •Thea Engler, Manuel Guth, Gregor Herten, and Andrea Knue — Uni Freiburg, Deutschland

The search for the tt H(Hb b) signal provides direct access to the top-Higgs Yukawa coupling. This channel has four b-jets in the final state and is suffering from large physics background, which makes b-tagging a crucial tool for this analysis. The irreducible tt + bb background has the same final-state particles as the signal process. In this background process, a radiated gluon splits into a b-quark pair. If these b-hadrons are close to each other, they can be reconstructed as one single jet (bb-jet). The irreducible background tt + bb can be better rejected if these bb-jets can be classified. Accordingly, an extended b-tagging algorithm is prepared, based on the ATLAS recommended b-tagger, with an additional classification category for bb-jets. To prepare the extended b-tagging algorithm, the importance of balanced input classes in the training of deep neural networks is studied. The studied approaches are implemented in the extended bb-tagger and a first training is presented.
