Analysis Comparisons for Code Version 14.05.006

Run Over D3PDs using the MSU analysis code

The DPDPs are stored on the CERN cluster in the directory /rooms/living/ntuples/single_top/TopPhysDPDMaker/14.05.006/ The following samples were included in the analysis:

Signal: 5500, 5502 (note that there is no 5501 sample for v14.05.006)

Background: 5200, 5204, 6280, 6281, 6282, 6283, 7680, 7681, 7682, 7683, 7684, 7685, 7690, 7691, 7692, 7693, 7694, 7695, 7700, 7701, 7702, 7703, 7704, 7705

Unlike v13.0.30, all input files ran without crashing and it was not necessary to comment out any of them in the list files.

The output files from the MSU analysis code are stored in the CERN cluster in the directory /home/root_files/single_top/TopPhysDPDMaker/14.05.006/EarlyData/ The samples in the directory unweighted were processed without an event weight. The samples in the directory weighted were weighted so that the number of events corresponds to a luminosity of 100 pb-1. The weighted samples were used for this analysis.

Merge Signal and Background Files

This comparison was done for the electrons chain. Note that "Electron" is replaced by "Muon" in the file names for the muon chain.

The merging was done using the !MergeTrees.C routine located in the macros/TreeManiuplation in the MSU analysis package and the merged files are in the directory /home/root_files/single_top/TopPhysDPDMaker/14.05.006/EarlyData/merged/.

The 2 signal files were combined into a single signal file called Topology.!SingleTop.1405006.FDR2.Electron.Signal.root. The 24 background files were combined into a signal background file called Topology.!SingleTop.1405006.FDR2.Electron.Background.root. The merged files were then divided into training, validation, and yield samples, which was achieved by setting the Split flag to 1 in the config file. The events were split according to their order in the merged file. For example, the first event was categorized as training, the second as validation, the third as yield, the fourth as training, and so on. Functionality to randomly assign variables to the different categories will be added in the future.

Events with negative weights were excluded from the Training sample to retain compatibility with SPR, which cannot handle negative weights. Validation samples both with and without events with negative weights were made. The files without events having negative weights are signified by the label NoNeg.

Variables Used

For comparison purposes, only the following variables were considered for training: HT, Jet1Pt =, =DeltaRJet1Jet2, WTransverseMass.

Ranking the Classifiers

The effectiveness of a classifier is determined by both its Signal Efficiency and Background Rejection. From a plot of Background Rejection vs. Signal Efficiency, there are two methods by which to rank the classifiers. The first is by the length of a straight line connecting the upper-right point in the plot to the upper-right axis intersection of (1,1) and the second is by the area under the classifier curve. A shorter line or larger area infers a better classifier.

To produce the file used for classifier ranking, was run over the merged root files. Note that these are the merged files containing all events, and not those split into training, validation, and yield samples.

In, half the events were assigned to training and the other half to validation by the line
factory.PrepareTrainingAndTestTree( mycutSig, mycutBkg, "NSigTrain=0:NBkgTrain=0::NSigTest=0:NBkgTest=0:SplitMode=Alternate:NormMode=NumEvents:!V" )

The kNN classifier was not used because it generated the following fatal error message
 <FATAL> KNN            : kNN result list is empty or has wrong size

The following command was used to execute
python \
   -S /home/root_files/single_top/TopPhysDPDMaker/14.05.006/EarlyData/merged/Topology.SingleTop.1405006.FDR2.Electron.Signal.root \
   -B /home/root_files/single_top/TopPhysDPDMaker/14.05.006/EarlyData/merged/Topology.SingleTop.1405006.FDR2.Electron.Background.root \
   -t "TopTree TopTree" \
   -o TMVAout.ClassifierRanking.1405006.root \

The program produces a plot showing Background Rejection vs. Signal Efficiency and ranks the classifiers. The plot and the rankings are shown below. Both rankings have the methods PDERS, CutsGA, and Fisher as the top 3.

Run TMVAnalysis over Training files was run over the Training sample of the merged root files. The following command was used to execute the python script:
python \
   -S /home/root_files/single_top/TopPhysDPDMaker/14.05.006/EarlyData/merged/Topology.SingleTop.1405006.FDR2.Electron.Signal.Training.NoNeg.root \
   -B /home/root_files/single_top/TopPhysDPDMaker/14.05.006/EarlyData/merged/Topology.SingleTop.1405006.FDR2.Electron.Background.Training.NoNeg.root \
   -t "TopTree TopTree" \
   -o TMVAout.1405006.root \
2 signal events were used for signal validation and 2 background event were used for background validation. This was achieved by the following line in
factory.PrepareTrainingAndTestTree( mycutSig, mycutBkg, "NSigTrain=10000000000:NBkgTrain=100000000000::NSigTest=2:NBkgTest=2:SplitMode=Alternate:NormMode=NumEvents:!V" )
Using 0 or 1 validation events for NSigTest and NBkgTest, instead of 2 validation events, caused the program to crash. I'm not sure why this happens.

TMVAnalysis outputs the root file TMVAout.1405006.root and information in the weights directory.

The text output from running the program can be found here: AnalysisTxt1405006

Run TMVApplication over Validation files was run over the Validation samples (with events having negative weights). Signal and background samples were run separately using the following commands.

 python \
   -i /home/root_files/single_top/TopPhysDPDMaker/14.05.006/EarlyData/merged/Topology.SingleTop.1405006.FDR2.Electron.Signal.Validation.root \
   -o Signal.1405006.root 

 python \
   -i /home/root_files/single_top/TopPhysDPDMaker/14.05.006/EarlyData/merged/Topology.SingleTop.1405006.FDR2.Electron.Background.Validation.root \
   -o Background.1405006.root 

Note that the number of bins in the classifier outputs is 50. This is set by nbin = 50.

Calculate Significance was run in order to calculate the significance. For now, the significance was taken as Signal/sqrt(Background). A more accurate, and complicated, calculation of the significance will be performed in the future. Events were weighted by a factor of 3 to account for the splitting into training, validation, and yield samples. was run as
python -S Signal.1405006.root -B Background.1405006.root -w 3 -o SignificanceOutput.1405006.root

The classifier output distributions are shown below for signal and background.

The significance was calculated for different cuts on the classifier output. This was done in two ways, by cutting as you move right across the values on x-axis and by cutting as you move left across the values on the x-axis. Both are shown below.
