Feb 23, 2006FTK Meeting2 Overview Last meeting Update signal model Update bkgd model Update/improve LVL1 param’z’n Update to ATLAS release 11.0.X Document Results Add FTK performance information Tweak cuts, finalize study

Feb 23, 2006FTK Meeting3 H  hh  4b analysis Two algorithms for event selection in ATL- PHYS-97-104. Algorithm AAlgorithm B NJETS >= 4 Consider leading 4 jets, pairing most consistent with 2 m h decays Consider any 4 jets most consistent with 2 m h decays Require b tag on all 4 jets Require both pairs have m bb = m h ± 25 GeV. Apply m h constraint, require m bbbb = m H ± 20 GeV.

Feb 23, 2006FTK Meeting4 Signal selection results L1Trig: 4j@40GeV 4 btags:  b = 0.6,  c = 0.1,  q = 0.01. Still haven’t determined correct cross-section for this m h, m H. Trigger req makes Alg B strongly favored.
