E Pluribus Unum Ex Machina: Learning from Many Collider Events at Once [article]

Benjamin Nachman, Jesse Thaler
2021 arXiv   pre-print
There have been a number of recent proposals to enhance the performance of machine learning strategies for collider physics by combining many distinct events into a single ensemble feature.  ...  We show how one can build optimal multi-event classifiers from single-event classifiers, and we also show how to construct multi-event classifiers such that they produce optimal single-event classifiers  ...  For this reason, there need not be a gain from using multi-event strategies over single-event strategies in the context of machine learning.  ...
