Boosted Decision Trees

Last update: 16 Mar 2023 [History] [Edit]

The third step in the ntuple-level analysis is to use boosted decision trees (BDTs) as an alternative approach to improving the analysis sensitivity to the leptoquark signal. Like the previous steps, this is done using a Jupyter notebook that you loaded into SWAN.

You will need to select bdtTutorial.ipynb.

The details of the exercise are presented in the slides attached to the associated event agenda as well as in the notebook.
