We are going to look single top tW production channel, with the final states of 3 jets, of which one is from b-quark, one lepton, and missing transverse energy from netrino. The aim is to provide complementary observation of tW to dilepton channel, and perform Vtb measurements. This analysis is already defined in single top group ongoing analysis(Aug. 2013).

Background estimation

We estimate top-pair, single top t-, s-channel from MC, and estimate QCD fake lepton, W+jets contribution from data driven methods

W+jets estimation

Seperation of tW from backgrounds

We use Multi-Variable Analysis (MVA) method to combine several discriminate variables into a powerful one to separate tW from background. The chosen one is Boost Decision Tree (BDT).
