Why jets? Why now? Jet substructure tagging experimental challenges + solutions Run I constraints on models of new physics using substructure tags Outlook Prospects for discoveries in Run II Probing the electroweak scale in Run I Probing electroweak symmetry breaking in Run I Beyond the electroweak scale Lessons from Run I Higgs mass requires us to study a variety of decays: • large branching fraction to bb • Searches for exotic di-higgs, etc. require fermionic decay channels Next searches must probe multi-TeV mass scales • large pT for final-state particles in decay • parton luminosity requires large acceptance in searches Hadronic decays and boosted object Looking towards Run II Quigg: http://lutece.fnal.gov/PartonLum We will probe higher masses/boosts at the same luminosity… Jet substructure at ATLAS Hadronic measurements at ATLAS EM Barrel/Endcap |η|< 3.2 : δφ ~ 0.025-0.1 σ(E)/E = 10%/√(E/GeV) Hadronic 0 < |η|< 1.7: : δφ ~ 0.1 1.7 < |η|< 3.2 : δφ ~ 0.1 σ(E)/E = 50%/√E Hadronic reconstruction perturbative shower suggests iterative, pairwise merging algorithms: jet reconstruction Jet reconstruction stable hadrons Calorimeter jet Calorimeter cells Truth jet iteratively combine closest pairs of particles distance = min(pTk) (ΔR/Rmax) jets topological clusters Jet constituent observable moments: calculations jet mass average jet charge m2 = (Σ Ei )2 – (Σ p i)2 jet functions from fragmentation functions jet charge Boost2012 Report, EPJC 74 (2014) Krohn et. al. “Jet Charge at the LHC” (2012) Jet constituent observables: parton shower top jet mass Jet constituent calibration Cluster constituents calibrated to local hadron scale Substructure moments re-calibrated at jet level Substructure-based tagging Interesting particles are color singlet Color singlet Color octet Charge conservation is powerful LHC backgrounds are … gluey q/g tagger Sensitive variables Modeling Gallicchio and Schwartz, PRL107 (2011) Color factor (g=3 vs. q=9/4) in substructure moments leads to many sensitive variables High pT BG are mostly light partons Butterworth, Cox, Forshaw (2002) top/W tagging variables n-subjettiness ~ 0 typically combined in a “tag” Thaler, Van Tilburg (2011) Splitting scale ~(m/2)2 Top-tagging performance W-tagging correlations W-tagging performance Challenges in substructure tagging the LHC environment Jet grooming Modeling substructure variables Theory typically predicts moments – tagging uses distributions Parton showers may disagree, and require tuning Modeling substructure variables artist: M.

Will hadronic final states show us new physics first in Run II?
