Over the past decade, a large number of jet substructure observables have been proposed in the literature, and explored at the LHC experiments. Such observables attempt to utilize the internal structure of jets in order to distinguish those initiated by quarks, gluons, or by boosted heavy objects, such as top quarks and W bosons. This report, originating from and motivated by the BOOST2013 workshop, presents original particle-level studies that aim to improve our understanding of the… 
Modification of jet substructure in heavy ion collisions as a probe of the resolution length of quark-gluon plasma
We present an analysis of the role that the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) resolution length, the minimal distance by which two nearby colored charges in a jet must be separated such that they engage with
QCD and Jets at Hadron Colliders
Abstract We review various aspects of jet physics in the context of hadron colliders. We start by discussing the definitions and properties of jets and recent development in this area. We then

We introduce a novel jet substructure method which exploits the variation of observables with respect to a sampling of phase-space boundaries quantified by the variability. We apply this technique to

A bstractWe show how the recently proposed XCone jet algorithm [1] smoothly interpolates between resolved and boosted kinematics. When using standard jet algorithms to reconstruct the decays of
Quark jet rates and quark-gluon discrimination in multijet final states
We estimate the number of quark jets in QCD multi-jet final states at hadron colliders. In the estimation, we develop the calculation of jet rates into that of quark jet rates. From the calculation,

We study the phenomenon of jet quenching utilizing quark and gluon jet substructures as independent probes of heavy ion collisions. We exploit jet and subjet features to highlight differences between
Jet Topics: Disentangling Quarks and Gluons at Colliders.
Investigations suggest that jet topics will be useful for extracting underlying jet distributions and fractions in a wide range of contexts at the Large Hadron Collider.
Top-Quark Physics: Status and Prospects
Abstract After the discovery of the top quark more than 20 years ago, its properties have been studied in great detail both in production and in decay. Increasingly sophisticated experimental results
The jet shape at NLL′
A bstractThe jet shape is the fraction of the jet energy within a cone r centered on the jet axis. We calculate the jet shape distribution at next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy plus next-to-leading
Collinear drop
We introduce collinear drop jet substructure observables, which are unaffected by contributions from collinear radiation, and systematically probe soft radiation within jets. These observables can be


Quark and gluon tagging at the LHC.
An exhaustive search of existing and novel jet substructure observables is found that a multivariate approach can filter out over 95% of the gluon jets while keeping more than half of the light-quark jets.

This report of the BOOST2012 workshop presents the results of four working groups that studied key aspects of jet substructure. We discuss the potential of first-principle QCD calculations to yield a

Top tagging can be used in tt[over ] events when one of the top quarks decays semileptonically, in events with missing energy, and in studies of b-tagging efficiency at high p{T}.
