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

On the Emergence of Quantum Chromodynamics as the Theory of Strong Interactions

This lecture note is a historical account on how Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) was progressively accepted as the theory of strong interactions, governing how hadrons appear, scatter and decay. We

Momentum distribution of charged particles in jets in dijet events and comparison to perturbative QCD predictions

Inclusive momentum distributions of charged particles are measured in dijet events. Events were produced at the AMY detector with a centre of mass energy of 60 GeV. Our results were compared, on the

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,

Universal quark to gluon ratio in medium-induced parton cascade

A bstractWe investigate the radiative break-up of a highly energetic quark or gluon in a high-temperature QCD plasma. Within an inertial range of momenta T ≪ ω ≪ E, where E denotes the energy of the

Measurement of the gluon fragmentation function and a comparison of the scaling violation in gluon and quark jets

Abstract. The fragmentation functions of quarks and gluons are measured in various three-jet topologies in Z decays from the full data set collected with the Delphi detector at the Z resonance

On the discovery of the gluon

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

Leading particle production in light flavour jets

The energy distribution and type of the particle with the highest momentum in quark jets are determined for each of the five quark flavours making only minimal model assumptions. The analysis is

Discovery of Three-Jet Events and a Test of Quantum Chromodynamics at PETRA

We report the analysis of the spatial energy distribution of data for e+e hadrons obtained with the MARK-J detector at PETRA. We define the quantity "oblateness" to describe the flat shape of the
