"HEP and Future Jet Substructure Measurements"


Dr. Christine McLean , SUNY-Buffalo
[Host: Chris Neu]
ABSTRACT:

Since the discovery of the SM Higgs boson in 2012, the investigation of the apparent difference between the electroweak and Planck scales has led to more interest in collisions with energies above the electroweak scale. One consequence of this new regime is expanded interest in hadronic final states resulting in collimated sprays of particles called jets. Understanding jets and jet substructure has therefore become of vital interest to particle physicists. In this seminar, I present recent measurements of jet substructure quantities, which can help us better understand multijet systems and to improve machine learning taggers by reducing systematic uncertainties. I also detail my work on jet reconstruction and plans to understand jet substructure at future colliders.
