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… Expand

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,Expand
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 prerequisiteExpand
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. WeExpand
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 theExpand
