This paper describe an application of a neural network approach to SM (standard model) and MSSM (minimal supersymetry standard model) Higgs search in the associated production ttH with H ? bb. This decay channel is considered as a discovery channel for Higgs scenarios for Higgs boson masses in the range 80 - 130 GeV. Neural network model with a special type of data flow is used to separate ttjj background from H ? bb events. Used neural network combine together a classical neural network… CONTINUE READING
