Special seminar series by Prof. Lance Dixon

Jets and Energy Correlations in QCD (2 lectures)

Place and times:

3rd April 2019 from 14:00 - 15:00h

4th April 2019 from 14:00 - 15:00h


I give a pedagogical introduction to the computation of infrared-safe observables in QCD, including jets at hadron colliders, and the energy-energy correlation (EEC) in electron-positron annihilation. Jet observables are ubiquitous at the LHC and can be computed at NLO for a large number of final state jets, but at NNLO for only two jets. On the other hand, the computations are quite numerically intensive. In contrast, the EEC is simple enough that it can be computed fully analytically at NLO, and certain resummations of it can also be performed rather accurately. Some of the tools developed for the EEC might find their way back to the LHC in the guise of a more accurate theoretical understanding of jet substructure.
