Improved $b$ quark jet identification at the D0 experiment

Abstract : The ability to identify jets which originated from $b$ quarks is an important tool of the physics program of the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron $p\bar{p}$ collider. This article describes a new algorithm designed to select jets originating from $b$ quarks while suppressing the contamination caused by jets from other quark flavors and gluons. Additionally, a new technique, the SystemN method, for determining the misidentification rate directly from data is presented.
