HET Seminar

"Teaching a Computer to Integrate"

Presented by Christina Gao, Fermilab

Wednesday, March 4, 2020, 2:30 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

We present a novel integrator based on normalizing flows which can be used to improve the unweighting efficiency of Monte-Carlo event generators for collider physics simulations. In contrast to the machine learning approaches based on surrogate models, our method generates the correct result even if the underlying neural networks are not optimally trained. We exemplify the new strategy using the example of Drell-Yan type processes at the LHC.
