Algorithms for b-Jet Identification at CMS

Schmidt, A (2009). Algorithms for b-Jet Identification at CMS. In: The 2009 Europhysics Conference on High Energy Physics, Krakow, PL, 16 July 2009 - 22 July 2009, 439.

Abstract

A comprehensive set of algorithms to identify jets originating from b-quarks has been developed within the CMS Collaboration. The fundamental properties of B-hadrons leading to observables which can be exploited for b-tagging are discussed and an overview of the basic concepts of the algorithms is given, followed by a comparison of their performance.
