  • The authors measure the subjet multiplicity M in jets reconstructed with a successive combination type of jet algorithm (K{sub T}). They select jets with 55 < E{sub T} < 100 GeV and {vert_bar}{eta}{vert_bar} < 0.5. They compare similar samples of jets at {radical}s = 1800 and 630 GeV. The HERWIG Monte Carlo simulation predicts that 59% of the jets are gluon jets at {radical}s = 1800 GeV, and 33% at {radical} s = 630 GeV. Using this information, they extract the subjet multiplicity in quark (M{sub q}) and gluon (M{sub g}) jets. They also measure the ratio R {equivalent_to} (M{submore » g}){minus}1/(M{sub g}){minus}1 = 1.91 {+-} 0.04(stat){sub {minus}0.19}{sup +0.23} (sys).« less
  • By using a model for polarized parton densities that fits EMC data on polarized deep inelastic scattering, we make prediction for double helicity asymmetries in 1 and 2 jet inclusive production from polarized proton proton scattering at RHIC energies.
  • A theoretical and experimental investigation of single-phase and particle-laden weakly swirling jets was conducted. The jets were injected vertically downward from a 19 mm diameter tube with swirl numbers ranging from 0 to 0.33. The particle-laden jets had a single loading ratio (0.2) with particles having an SMD of 39 micrometers. Mean and fluctuating properties of both phases were measured using nonintrusive laser based methods while particle mass flux was measured using an isokinetic sampling probe. The continuous phase was analyzed using both a baseline k-epsilon turbulence model and an extended version with modifications based on the flux Richardson numbermore » to account for effects of streamline curvature. To highlight effects of interphase transport rates and particle/turbulence interactions, effects of the particles were analyzed as follows: (1) locally homogeneous flow (LHF) analysis, where interphase transport rates are assumed to be infinitely fast; (2) deterministic separated flow (DSF) analysis, where finite interphase transport rates are considered but particle/turbulence interactions are ignored; and (3) stochastic separated flow (SSF) analysis, where both effects are considered using random-walk computations. 18 references.« less
  • In this contribution we present results from the NLO computation of the production of a W boson in association with three jets in hadronic collisions. The results are obtained by combining two programs: BlackHat for the virtual one-loop matrix elements and Sherpa for the real-emission contributions. We present results for the Tevatron and the LHC, and address the issue of the choice of a common factorization and renormalization scale for this process.
  • We investigate the impact of theoretical uncertainties on the accuracy of measurements involving hadronic jets. The analysis is performed using events with a Z boson and a single jet observed in p {bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV in 4.6 fb{sup -1} of data from the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF). The transverse momenta (p{sub T}) of the jet and the boson should balance each other due to momentum conservation in the plane transverse to the direction of the p and {bar p} beams. We evaluate the dependence of the measured p{sub T}-balance on theoretical uncertainties associated withmore » initial and final state radiation, choice of renormalization and factorization scales, parton distribution functions, jet-parton matching, calculations of matrix elements, and parton showering. We find that the uncertainty caused by parton showering at large angles is the largest among the listed uncertainties. The proposed method can be re-applied at the LHC experiments to investigate and evaluate the uncertainties on the predicted jet energies. The distributions produced at the CDF environment are intended for comparison to those from modern event generators and new tunes of parton showering. The comparison will allow higher accuracy of the predicted jet energies, and thus an improved discovery potential in signatures containing jets, at the LHC.« less
