  author={T. Dorigo and M. Fumanelli and C. Maccani and Marija Mojsovska and G. Strong and B. Scarpa},
The unsupervised search for overdense regions in high-dimensional feature spaces, where locally high population densities may be associated with anomalous contaminations to an otherwise more uniform population, is of relevance to applications ranging from fundamental research to industrial use cases. Motivated by the specific needs of searches for new phenomena in particle collisions, we propose a novel approach that targets signals of interest populating compact regions of the feature space… Expand


Anomaly detection with density estimation
We leverage recent breakthroughs in neural density estimation to propose a new unsupervised anomaly detection technique (ANODE). By estimating the probability density of the data in a signal regionExpand
Anomaly Detection for Resonant New Physics with Machine Learning.
A new model-agnostic anomaly detection technique that naturally benefits from modern machine learning algorithms is presented that can turn a modest 2σ excess into a 7σ excess for a model with an intermediate BSM particle that is not currently targeted by a dedicated search. Expand
Anomaly detection by robust statistics
An overview of several robust methods and the resulting graphical outlier detection tools for univariate, low‐dimensional, and high‐dimensional data, such as estimating location and scatter, linear regression, principal component analysis, classification, clustering, and functional data analysis are presented.

Outlier detection by active learning
This paper presents a novel approach to outlier detection based on classification, which is superior to other methods based on the same reduction to classification, but using standard classification methods, and shows that it is competitive to the state-of-the-art outlier Detection methods in the literature.

A robust anomaly finder based on autoencoder
We propose a robust method to identify anomalous jets by vetoing QCD jets. The robustness of this method ensures that the distribution of the discriminating variable, which allows us to vetoExpand
Mining distance-based outliers in near linear time with randomization and a simple pruning rule
This work shows that a simple nested loop algorithm that in the worst case is quadratic can give near linear time performance when the data is in random order and a simple pruning rule is used. Expand
Anomaly Detection for Physics Analysis and Less than Supervised Learning
Modern machine learning tools offer exciting possibilities to qualitatively change the paradigm for new particle searches. In particular, new methods can broaden the search program by gainingExpand
Learning New Physics from a Machine
We propose using neural networks to detect data departures from a given reference model, with no prior bias on the nature of the new physics responsible for the discrepancy. The virtues of neuralExpand
Adversarially-trained autoencoders for robust unsupervised new physics searches
Machine learning techniques in particle physics are most powerful when they are trained directly on data, to avoid sensitivity to theoretical uncertainties or an underlying bias on the expectedExpand
Extending the search for new resonances with machine learning
The oldest and most robust technique to search for new particles is to look for ``bumps'' in invariant mass spectra over smoothly falling backgrounds. We present a new extension of the bump hunt thatExpand
