We present results for matched distributions of a range of dijet event shapes at hadron colliders, combining next-to-leading logarithmic (NLL) accuracy in the resummation exponent, next-to-next-to leading logarithmic (NNLL) accuracy in its expansion and next-to-leading order (NLO) accuracy in a pure αs expansion. This is the first time that such a matching has been carried out for hadronic final-state observables at hadron colliders. We compare our results to Monte Carlo predictions, with and… 

Soft-drop grooming for hadronic event shapes

Abstract Soft-drop grooming of hadron-collision final states has the potential to significantly reduce the impact of non-perturbative corrections, and in particular the underlying-event

QCD resummation for high-pT jet shapes at hadron colliders

Exploiting the substructure of jets observed at the LHC to better understand and interpret the experimental data has recently been a very active area of research. In this thesis we study the

Precision QCD Event Shapes at Hadron Colliders: The Transverse Energy-Energy Correlator in the Back-to-Back Limit.

It is anticipated that the theoretical simplicity of the TEEC observable will make it indispensable for precision studies of QCD at the LHC, and as a playground for theoretical studies of factorization and its violation.

Threshold hadronic event shapes with effective field theory

Hadronic event shapes, that is, event shapes at hadron colliders, could provide a great way to test both standard and nonstandard theoretical models. However, they are significantly more complicated

Resummed Results for Hadron Collider Observables

Event shapes are invaluable QCD tools for theoretical calculations and experimental measurements. We revise the definition of these observables in e + e − annihilation and in hadron collisions, and

Phenomenology at a future 100 TeV hadron collider

Run 1 of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been one of the most successful experiments in particle physics. We are now approaching the end of LHC Run 2, and whether we will discover new physics or

Resummation prediction on the jet mass spectrum in one-jet inclusive production at the LHC

A bstractWe study the factorization and resummation prediction on the jet mass spectrum in one-jet inclusive production at the LHC based on soft-collinear effective theory. The soft function with

Dynamical Grooming meets LHC data

Abstract In this work, we analyse the all-orders resummation structure of the momentum sharing fraction, zg, opening angle, θg, and relative transverse momentum, kt,g, of the splitting tagged by the

Phenomenology for the Large Hadron Collider

The search for physics Beyond the Standard Model is the underlying motivation for the physics programme of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. In this thesis we will present studies into the Large



Matching NLLA+NNLO for event shape distributions

Next-to-leading order calculation of three jet observables in hadron hadron collision

The production of three jets in hadron-hadron collisions is the first complex process which allows us to define a branch of variables in order to make more precise measurements of the strong coupling

Out-of-plane QCD radiation in hadronic Z0 production

We present the QCD analysis of the cumulative out-of-event-plane momentum distribution in the process p into Z0 and a hard jet (event plane defined by the p and Z0 momenta). Particular attention is

NNLO corrections to event shapes in e+e− annihilation

We compute the next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) QCD corrections to the six most important event shape variables related to three-particle final states in electron- positron annihilation. The

Non-perturbative QCD effects in jets at hadron colliders

We discuss non-perturbative QCD contributions to jet observables, computing their dependence on the jet radius R, and on the colour and transverse momentum of the parton initiating the jet. We show,

Resummed event shapes at hadron - hadron colliders

This article introduces definitions for a number of new event shapes and jet-rates in hadron-hadron dijet production. They are designed so as to be measurable in practice at the Tevatron and the LHC,

HERWIG 6: an event generator for hadron emission reactions with interfering gluons (including supersymmetric processes)

HERWIG is a general-purpose Monte Carlo event generator, which includes the simulation of hard lepton-lepton, lepton-hadron and hadron-hadron scattering and soft hadron-hadron collisions in one

NNLO corrections to 3-jet observables in electron-positron annihilation

Jet observables and event shapes in electron-positron annihilation can be used to extract the value of the strong coupling constant αs [1, 2, 3]. This applies in particular to three-jet observables,
