The Higgs Boson was directly observed, only in its decay modes to the Gauge Bosons (photons, W and Z). No clear, direct signs for Higgs decaying to second generation quarks have been seen yet. Our group is developing a new charm tagger using advanced statistical methods (Deep Learning).
Until we clearly observe the Higgs Boson decay to second generation particles, one would not get a clear evidence for the role of the BEH mechanism in giving mass to matter particles. We are joining effort with TAU in developing an analysis to measure the Higgs coupling to Charm Quarks via the associate production of the Higgs with a Vector Boson (W,Z).
First ever measurement of Higgs production in association with a Charm Quark, pp-->Hc. The Higgs decays to a pair of Photons.
We use autoencoders to detect anomalies in detector monitoring patterns.
We use advanced Geometric Deep Learning (GRAPHS) to predict the neutral energy in calorimetric cells.
