Towards an understanding of jet substructure

Speaker:

Seminar
Location: 
Room U2 5017 (Dept. Physics, Bicocca U.)

Recently searches for boosted new particles using jet substructure techniques has been a topic of great current interest and relevance to LHC phenomenology. In this talk we discuss an approach towards a more systematic understanding of jet substructure and show how such an understanding, based on the first principles of QCD can be exploited to benefit boosted object studies and new physics searches.
