Until Run2 in 2015, this search has used an inclusive tagger for SM Higgs boson and top quark, requiring higher mass of large-R jets. On the other hand, the difference between VLQ signal and the dominant background of \(t\bar{t}\,+{\ge }\)1b is the existence of boosted Higgs boson. A boosted Higgs boson tagger is promising to discriminate the signal from backgrounds and to improve the sensitivity. In the first part of this chapter, the exclusive Higgs boson and top quark taggers are defined and optimised.
