Possible Improvements of the Signal Selections in ATLAS for Dark Matter Production in association with Heavy Flavour Quarks / Ruimi, Ophir Moshe (CERN)
During this Summer Student Programme at CERN I had the opportunity to join the DM+HF ATLAS group working on WIMPs pair production associated with heavy flavour (bottom and top) quarks, arising from proton-proton collisions at the LHC [...]

Cross Validation Improvements in TMVA  / Uzair, Mohammad
TMVA is a machine learning framework primarily targeted at enabling physics  research and is distributed as part of ROOT. This project sets out to improve the  validation tools, and cross validation of TMVA. Cross validation is an important tool for making the most out of limited data sets trading increased data efficiency for decreased computation efficiency. This is relevant to HEP applications since  experiments are limited by the prohibitive cost of running detector and reconstruction simulation. Tasks include: implement and evaluate the performance of different cross validation splitting functions; extend the current implementation to seamlessly handle nested cross validation; evaluate and compare the performance of the TMVA implementation to industry standard libraries using physics datasets; parallelise training and evaluation.
