Jets aren’t just a game of tag anymore
One way in which phenomenologists are utilizing jet substructure technology is in the study of hadron production. Baumgart et. al.Read more.
What is “Model Building”?
So what is it that theorists do, besides sipping espresso and scribbling on chalk boards? In this post we describeRead more.

Jets: More than Riff, Tony, and a rumble
Ubiquitous in the LHC’s ultra-high energy collisions are collimated sprays of particles called jets. The study of jet physics isRead more.
750 GeV Bump Update
So, where do we stand today? After considering the data from 2015 (at 13 TeV center-of-mass energy) and 2012 (atRead more.
