Add to Calendar 2/26/2018 1:00 pm 2/26/2018 America/Chicago High Energy/Medium Energy Physics Seminar: "New Opportunities in Jet Physics at Colliders." DESCRIPTION:

Collimated jets of hadrons serve as precision tests of the standard model and in particular QCD. For example, jets observables have been applied extensively to constrain parton distribution functions and to probe the hot and dense medium created in heavy-ion collisions, as well as to the search for physics beyond the standard model. In this talk, I will mainly focus on recent theoretical developments based on the effective field theory approach to jet physics. This newly established framework allows for precision calculations of jet cross sections and enables a direct comparison of experimental data and first principles calculations of jet substructure observables. Particular examples of hadron and subjet distributions as well as the jet mass distribution will be presented. I will also discuss future applications and developments for jet physics at the LHC, RHIC and the planned EIC.
