APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Edward A. Bouchet Award Talk “ The top quark mass, a brief history and present status” Gaston Gutierrez Fermilab This talk is dedicated to the memory of Clicerio Avilez.

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Concepts of maximum likelihood. A brief history of the top quark mass measured by calculating a probability density distribution for every event. The current status of the top mass measurements. Other application of M.E.M. Conclusion. Outline of the talk

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab If for an event characterized by a set of measurements one can calculate the probability density function: then given N events the optimal estimation of the set of parameters is obtained by maximizing General Maximum Likelihood technique

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab In general we have to sun over all states that can lead to the set of measurements the sum is over probabilities (amplitudes) if the states do not (do) interfere. For a perfect detector we have with Probability calculation

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Probability calculation for real detectors Detector acceptance (e.g. cuts, trigger, …) partonic integral partonic variables mapping between partonic and measured variables measured variables parameters Integral over measured Variable (normalization)

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Why apply the previous method to the top mass? The top mass is an important SM parameter. Together with the W mass it constrains the Higgs mass Top is a very isolated state, which makes for a cleaner calculation of the pdf. No matter which method we use we all need to model the relation between the top mass and the detector measurements.

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Run I: MC linearity after background selection Test of linearity of response with MC samples containing large numbers of events. The number of events in the plot are given before the background cut

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Run I: Top mass measurement M t = 180.1  3.6 GeV (stat) This new technique improves the statistical error on M t from 5.6 GeV [ PRD 58 52001, (1998) ] to 3.6 GeV. This is equivalent to a factor of 2.4 in the number of events. The number of extracted signal events is: (11±3)/(0.71 x 0.70 x 0.87)=25 ±7 (a 0.5 GeV shift has been applied, from MC studies)

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Run I: W mass check 80.9 ± 2.6 GeV The likelihood minimizes at = 79.4 GeV, with an error of 2.2 GeV. Studies at M top = 175 GeV show that there is a systematic shift in M W of 1.5 GeV and an under estimation of the error of 20%. Therefore

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Run II: Top mass at D0 There were many improvements in the probability calculations. But the main gain has been to: 1) include a Jet Energy Scale (JES) parameter in the minimization and 2) use a prior from the γ+jet energy calibration. lepton+jets most recently published result (1 fb -1 )

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Top, W and Higgs masses are related Accurate measurements of the top quark and W boson masses put constraints on the mass of the Higgs boson. Because of the log dependence to have meaningful constraints on the Higgs mass high precision measurement of the W and top quark masses are required.

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab LEP EWWG as of March 2009 These (almost) lines are EW the predictions.

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Higgs limits as of March 2009 The SM Higgs mass limit from the EW fit is: m H <163 GeV/c 2 at 95% CL. Footnote: There is a 3 σ discrepancy between the hadronic and leptonic F-B asymmetries. If any of this two are removed there are big changes in the Higgs mass limits (see M. Chanowitz, PRD 66:073002, 2002 and Fermilab W&C 2/23/2007)

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab The general method Most people would agree that if the probability of an event could be calculated accurately then the best estimate of a parameter will maximize a likelihood like: The detector and reconstruction effects are always multiplicative and independent of the parameter to be estimated: The probability P(x;α) can be calculated as: Where x is the set of variables measured in the detector, y is the set of parton level variables, dσ is the differential cross section and f(q) are the parton distribution functions. W(x,y) is the probability that a parton level set of variables y will show up in the detector as the set of variables x. The integration reflects the fact that we want to sum over all the possible parton variables y leading to the observed set of variables x.

APS 5-MAY-2009 G. Gutierrez, Fermilab Transfer function W(x,y) W(x,y) is the probability of measuring x when y was produced (x measured variables, y parton variables): where E y energy of the produced quarks E x measured (and corrected) jet energy p y e produced electron momenta p x e measured electron momenta  y j  x j produced and measured jet angles The energy of the electrons is considered well measured. And due to the excellent granularity of the D  calorimeter the angles are also considered as well measured. A sum of two gaussians is used for the jet transfer function (W jet ), the parameters were extracted from MC simulation.
