Identifying Boosted Objects with N-subjettiness and Linear k-means Clustering by

Abstract

In this thesis, I explore aspects of a new jet shape N-subjettiness designed to identify boosted hadronically-decaying objects (with a particular focus on tagging top quarks) at particle accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider. Combined with an invariant mass cut on jets, N-subjettiness is a powerful discriminating variable for tagging boosted… (More)
