Description

A search is presented for standard model (SM) production of four top quarks in pp collisions at the LHC. Using Run-2 data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.6$fb^{-1}$, a combination of kinematic reconstruction and multivariate techniques is used to distinguish between the small signal ($\sigma^{SM}_{t \bar{t} t \bar{t}} \sim 9 fb$) and backgrounds in the dilepton + jets channel. A combination with the lepton + jets channel is also presented.
