Search for $ {\mathrm{t\bar{t}}\mathrm{H}} $ production in the $ {\mathrm{H}\to\mathrm{b\bar{b}}} $ decay channel with leptonic $ \mathrm{t\bar{t}} $ decays in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s} = $ 13 TeV | ||

Abstract: A search is presented for the associated production of a standard model Higgs boson with a top quark-antiquark pair ($ {\mathrm{t\bar{t}}\mathrm{H}} $), in which the Higgs boson decays into a b quark-antiquark pair, in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s} = $ 13 TeV. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$ recorded with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC. Candidate $ {\mathrm{t\bar{t}}\mathrm{H}} $ events are selected that contain either one or two electrons or muons from the $ \mathrm{t\bar{t}} $ decays and are categorised according to the number of jets. Multivariate techniques are employed to further classify the events and eventually discriminate between signal and background. The results are characterised by an observed $ {\mathrm{t\bar{t}}\mathrm{H}} $ signal strength relative to the standard model cross section, $\mu = \sigma/\sigma_{\mathrm{SM}}$, under the assumption of a Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV. A combined fit of multivariate discriminant distributions in all categories results in an observed (expected) upper limit on $\mu$ of 1.5 (0.9) at 95% confidence level, and a best fit value of 0.72 $\pm$ 0.24 (stat) $\pm$ 0.38 (syst), corresponding to an observed (expected) signal significance of 1.6 (2.2) standard deviations above the background-only hypothesis. | ||

The expected background contributions (filled histograms) are stacked, and the expected signal distribution (line), which includes $ {{\mathrm {H}} \to {{\mathrm {b}} {\overline {\mathrm {b}}}}} $ and all other Higgs boson decay modes, is superimposed.

Post-fit pull and impact on the signal strength $\mu$ of the nuisance parameters included in the fit, ordered by their impact. Only the 20 highest ranked parameters are shown, not including nuisance parameters describing the uncertainty due to the size of the simulated samples. The four highest-ranked nuisance parameters related to the jet energy scale uncertainty sources are shown as indicated in parentheses. The pulls of the nuisance parameters (black markers) are computed relative to their pre-fit values $\theta_{0}$ and uncertainties $\Delta \theta$. The impact $\Delta \mu$ is computed as the difference of the nominal best fit value of $\mu$ and the best fit value obtained when fixing the nuisance parameter under scrutiny to its best fit value $\hat{\theta}$ plus/minus its post-fit uncertainty (coloured areas). |

Contributions of different sources of uncertainties to the result for the fit to the data (observed) and to the expectation from simulation (expected). The quoted uncertainties $\Delta \mu $ in $\mu $ are obtained by fixing the listed sources of uncertainties to their post-fit values in the fit and subtracting the obtained result in quadrature from the result of the full fit. The statistical uncertainty is evaluated by fixing all nuisance parameters to their post-fit values. The quadratic sum of the contributions is different from the total uncertainty because of correlations between the nuisance parameters. |

Summary |
A search for the associated production of a Higgs boson and a top quark-antiquark pair ($ {\mathrm{t\bar{t}}\mathrm{H}} $) is performed using pp collision data recorded with the CMS detector at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV in 2016, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$. Candidate events are selected in final states compatible with the Higgs boson decaying into a b quark-antiquark pair and the single-lepton and dilepton decay channels of the $ \mathrm{t\bar{t}} $ system. Selected events are split into mutually exclusive categories according to their $ \mathrm{t\bar{t}} $ decay channel and jet content. In each category a powerful discriminant is constructed to separate the $ {\mathrm{t\bar{t}}\mathrm{H}} $ signal from the dominant ${\mathrm{t\bar{t}}}$+jets background, based on several multivariate analysis techniques (boosted decision trees, matrix element method, and deep neural networks). An observed (expected) upper limit on the $ {\mathrm{t\bar{t}}\mathrm{H}} $ production cross section $\mu$ relative to the SM expectations of 1.5 (0.9) at 95% confidence level is obtained. The best fit value of $\mu$ is 0.72 $\pm$ 0.24 (stat) $\pm$ 0.38 (syst). These results correspond to an observed (expected) significance of 1.6 (2.2) standard deviations above the background-only hypothesis. |

Comparison of the sensitivity of the BDT+MEM and DNN methods using simulated data. The best-fit value of the signal strength modifier $\mu $ in the single-lepton and the dilepton channels as well as the combined results are listed, which have been obtained on Asimov data with a standard model signal injected. The one standard deviation confidence intervals are also quoted, split into the statistical and systematic components. |
