The double Higgs production: a Bayesian nonparametric approach

by Annalisa Balata

How is it possible to isolate the signal of the double Higgs production using the decay channel in which each boson decays into a pair of b-quarks? Which is the best classification model that can help us in separating the signal from background?

In my master thesis I propose a Bayesian model that can be used instead of the common classification techniques, like Continue reading “The double Higgs production: a Bayesian nonparametric approach”

Journey to the Center of the Earth – Or at Least a Hundred Feet Underground and a Thousand Miles from Home

Hey, everyone. My name’s Alec Josaitis; I’m a junior (third-year student) at the University of Michigan studying physics. However, I have taken this semester off from my University studies in order to conduct research in the ATLAS collaboration at CERN. Continue reading “Journey to the Center of the Earth – Or at Least a Hundred Feet Underground and a Thousand Miles from Home”

Gravitational waves: everything you wanted to know

By now the adrenaline from the announcement of the first direct detection of gravitational waves has subsided, and we can discuss the particulars of the observation. Here, I’ll try to describe the state of the detectors, answer some questions about the analysis methods, and highlight a few points about the detection that might have gotten lost in the excitement. Continue reading “Gravitational waves: everything you wanted to know”
