Search for the Vector Boson Fusion Production of the Higgs Boson in the H -> WW -> lnulnu Channel using Support Vector Machines.

Wetter, Jeffrey.

Abstract: This thesis presents a search for vector boson fusion production of Higgs bosons in the H->WW->lnulnu channel using the 20fb^-1 2012 ATLAS data set. The analysis uses support vector machines in order to distinguish signal and background events. First, an analysis is performed using a 2-class support vector machine, designed to separate signal events from all backgrounds. In additio... read more
