"Polaroid jetography: an album of jet physics measurements and searches at the ATLAS experiment"
 Slideshow (PDF)
In Quantum ChromoDynamics (QCD), confined quarks and gluons from the proton-proton scattering manifest themselves as groups of collimated particles in the final state. These particles are clustered into physically measurable objects called hadronic jets. Jets are widely produced at hadron colliders: they are the key physics objects for a rediscovery of QCD and for searches for New Physics. This talk presents a series of snapshots from the extensive album of the ATLAS jet physics program with the Large Hadron Collider 7 and 8 TeV dataset, starting from an overview of jet reconstruction and calibration techniques and outlining a selection of measurements and searches with jets.
