Search for supersymmetry in events with a single lepton, jets, and missing transverse momentum using a neural network

Abstract

A search for supersymmetry in proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV is presented, focusing on events with a single isolated lepton, energetic jets, and large missing transverse momentum. The analyzed data corresponds to a total integrated luminosity of 4.98 fb-1 recorded by the CMS experiment. The search uses an artificial neural network to suppress Standard Model backgrounds, and estimates residual backgrounds using a fully data-driven method. The analysis is performed in both the muon and electron channels, and the combined result is interpreted in terms of limits on the CMSSM parameter space.

The MET distribution of low ANN output events (0.2 < ANN output < 0.4) (black open circles) overlaid on the MET distribution of high ANN output events (ANN output > 0.4) (blue dots) for SM simulation. The distributions are normalized in the MET sideband, 150 GeV < MET < 350 GeV (regions A and C for the two distributions respectively). The last histogram bin includes overflow.

Event counts for various regions defined by the background subtraction method.

Closure test of the background estimation method using SM simulation. Regions D and D' are the low-MET and high-MET signal regions. For Dpred (D'pred), the values for the SM components are based on their respective yields in regions A, B and C (A, B' and C). For total SM, the value of Dpred (D'pred) is based on the total SM yields in regions A, B and C (A, B' and C). Hence, the values of Dpred and D'pred for total SM cannot be obtained by adding the corresponding values for the SM components.

The background prediction for data. The corrected prediction ignores the statistical uncertainty on the correction factor, since it is treated as a systematic uncertainty.
