Title: Jet energy scale measurements and their systematic uncertainties in proton-proton collisions at s = 13 TeV with the ATLAS detector

Jet energy scale measurements and their systematic uncertainties are reported for jets measured with the ATLAS detector using proton-proton collision data with a center-of-mass energy of √ s = 13 TeV , corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.2 fb -1 collected during 2015 at the LHC. Jets are reconstructed from energy deposits forming topological clusters of calorimeter cells, using the anti- k t algorithm with radius parameter R = 0.4 . We calibrate jets with a series of simulation-based corrections and in situ techniques. In situ techniques exploit the transverse momentum balance between a jet and a reference object such as a photon, Z boson, or multijet system for jets with 20 < p T < 2000 GeV and pseudorapidities of | η | < 4.5 , using both data and simulation. An uncertainty in the jet energy scale of less than 1% is found in the central calorimeter region ( | η | < 1.2 ) for jets with 100 < p T < 500 GeV . An uncertainty of about 4.5% is found for low- p T jets with p T = 20 GeV in the central region, dominated by uncertainties in the corrections for multiple proton-protonmore » interactions. The calibration of forward jets ( | η | > 0.8 ) is derived from dijet p T balance measurements. Furthermore, for jets of p T = 80 GeV , the additional uncertainty for the forward jet calibration reaches its largest value of about 2% in the range | η | > 3.5 and in a narrow slice of 2.2 < | η | < 2.4 .« less
