The dataset has been built from official ATLAS full detector simulation, with Higgs to tautau events mixed with different backgrounds. The simulator has two parts. In the first, random proton-proton collisions are simulated based on the knowledge that we have accumulated on particle physics. It reproduces the random microscopic explosions resulting from the proton-proton collisions. In the second part, the resulting particles are tracked through a virtual model of the detector. The process yields simulated...
This software package contains several helper scripts that demonstrate event filtering and AMS score evaluation techniques on the ATLAS Higgs Challenge data set.
A documentation for the Challenge is provided, with just the sufficient level of explanation for people without any background in physics, nor machine learning.
