AbstractThe observation of quark and gluon jets has played a crucial role in establishing Quantum Chromodynamics [QCD] as the theory of the strong interactions within the Standard Model of particle physics. The jets, narrowly collimated bundles of hadrons, reflect configurations of quarks and gluons at short distances. Thus, by analysing energy and angular distributions of the jets experimentally, the properties of the basic constituents of matter and the strong forces acting between them can…

Jet physics in electron–proton scattering

Hadronic jets in electron–proton collisions at HERA have been used for some considerable time as a tool for tests of the theory of strong interactions, quantum chromodynamics. Using jet final states,

Jet Energy Scale Corrections and their Impact on Measurements of the Top-Quark Mass at CMS

The final state of many physics processes at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is dominated by jets, the experimental signature of quarks and gluons. The precise measurement of jets is a prerequisite

Jetting Through The Primordial Universe

Collisions of heavy ion nuclei at relativistic speeds (close to the speed of light) creates a high temperature and very dense form of matter, now known to consist of de-confined quarks and gluons,

Measurement of b jet shapes in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s} =$ 5.02 TeV

We present the first study of charged-hadron production associated with jets originating from b quarks in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 5.02 TeV. The data sample used in this

We present the first study of charged-hadron production associated with jets originating from b quarks in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 5.02 TeV. The data sample used in this

Search for Supersymmetry Using Leptons and Jets and No Missing Transverse Energy

Probing the standard model: a search for supersymmetry in events with leptons, jets, and no missing transverse energy and a production study of Υ(1S), Υ(2S), and Υ(3S) states at high tranvserse

Abstract. Quantum chromodynamics, the theory of the strong interaction, is a field theory of quarks and gluons. When it was formulated, the existence of its basic ingredients was still unproven and
