Stacking machine learning classifiers to identify Higgs bosons at the LHC

21 Dec 2016 Alexandre Alves

Machine learning (ML) algorithms have been employed in the problem of classifying signal and background events with high accuracy in particle physics. In this paper, we compare the performance of a widespread ML technique, namely, \emph{stacked generalization}, against the results of two state-of-art algorithms: (1) a deep neural network (DNN) in the task of discovering a new neutral Higgs boson and (2) a scalable machine learning system for tree boosting, in the Standard Model Higgs to tau leptons channel, both at the 8 TeV LHC...
