A bstractJet substructure tools have proven useful in a number of high-energy particle-physics studies. A particular case is the discrimination, or tagging, between a boosted jet originated from an electroweak boson (signal), and a standard QCD parton (background). A common way to achieve this is to cut on a measure of the radiation inside the jet, i.e. a jet shape. Over the last few years, analytic calculations of jet substructure have allowed for a deeper understanding of these tools and for… 

Substructure at Colliders

In this PhD thesis we investigate several aspects of parton distribution functions (PDFs) and jets as applicable to the physics underpinning the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) as well as future

The study of the internal structure of hadronic jets has become in recent years a very active area of research in particle physics. Jet substructure techniques are increasingly used in experimental

QCD resummation for groomed jet observables at NNLL+NLO

We use a direct QCD approach to carry out the next-to-next-to-leading logarithmic (NNLL) resummation for observables groomed with the modified mass-drop tagger (Soft Drop β = 0). We focus on

Prospects for strong coupling measurement at hadron colliders using soft-drop jet mass

Two-prong Tagging with Jet Shapes

Two-prong taggers aim at discriminating massive objects that decay into two hard QCD partons (usually quarks), from the background of QCD jets. This signal is often an electroweak boson (H/W/Z) but
