Jets in effective theory: Summing phase space logs
Abstract
We demonstrate how to resum phase space logarithms in the StermanWeinberg (SW) dijet decay rate within the context of soft collinear effective theory (SCET). An operator basis corresponding to two and three jet events is defined in SCET and renormalized. We obtain the renormalization group equation of the two and three jet operators and run the operators from the scale {mu}{sup 2}=Q{sup 2} to the phase space scale {mu}{sub {delta}}{sup 2}={delta}{sup 2}Q{sup 2}. This phase space scale, where {delta} is the cone half angle of the jet, defines the angular region of the jet. At {mu}{sub {delta}}{sup 2} we determine the mixing of the three and two jet operators. We combine these results with the running of the two jet shape function, which we run down to an energy cut scale {mu}{sub {beta}}{sup 2}. This defines the resummed SW dijet decay rate in the context of SCET. The approach outlined here demonstrates how to establish a jet definition in the context of SCET. This allows a program of systematically improving the theoretical precision of jet phenomenology to be carried out.

The structure of perturbative quantum chromodynamics in kinematic regimes characterized by two large but very different mass scales is discussed. The various levels of approximation used to study these regimes are viewed. Of particular interest is the behavior for extremly different scales where the simplest approximation predicts a suppression. A more refined approximation suggests the absence of any suppression but it is argued that only a much more detailed analysis can supply a definitive answer to this issue.

Phase space and jet definitions in softcollinear effective theory
We discuss consistent power counting for integrating soft and collinear degrees of freedom over arbitrary regions of phase space in the softcollinear effective theory, and illustrate our results at oneloop with several jet algorithms: JADE, StermanWeinberg and k{sub perpendicular}. Consistently applying softcollinear effective theory power counting in phase space, along with nontrivial zerobin subtractions, prevents double counting of final states. The resulting phase space integrals over soft and collinear regions are individually ultraviolet divergent, but the phase space ultraviolet divergences cancel in the sum. Whether the soft and collinear contributions are individually infrared safe depends on the jet definition. Wemore » 
Extending soft collinear effective theory to describe hard jets in dense QCD media
An extension to the soft collinear effective theory description of hard jets is motivated to include the leading contributions between the propagating partons within the jet with partons radiated from a dense extended medium. The resulting effective Lagrangian, containing both a leading and a power suppressed (in the hard scale Q{sup 2}) contribution, arises primarily from interactions between the hard collinear modes in the jet with Glauber modes from the medium. In this first attempt, the interactions between the hard jet and soft and collinear partonic modes have been ignored, in an effort to focus solely on the interactions withmore » 
DiJet Conical Correlations Associated with Heavy Quark Jets in antide Sitter Space/Conformal Field Theory Correspondence
We show that far zone Mach and diffusion wake 'holograms' produced by supersonic strings in antide Sitter space/conformal field theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence do not lead to observable conical angular correlations in the strict N{sub c}{yields}{infinity} supergravity limit if CooperFrye hadronization is assumed. However, a special nonequilibrium 'neck' zone near the jet is shown to produce an apparent sonic boom azimuthal angle distribution that is roughly independent of the heavy quark's velocity. Our results indicate that a measurement of the dependence of the awayside correlations on the velocity of associated identified heavy quark jets at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collidermore »
