Jet Timing
Date: Tuesday, October 19th
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Place: Chamberlin 5280
Speaker: Matthew Low, University of Pittsburgh
Abstract: The measurement of the arrival time of a particle, such as a lepton or photon, reaching the detector provides valuable information. A similar measurement for a hadronic final state, however, is much more challenging as one has to extract the relevant information from a collection of particles. In this talk, I will explore the most effective ways to combine the times of particles into a single time for a jet. First, prompt jets will be discussed, then the more complicated case of delayed jets will be studied. Choosing a good definition of the time of a jet offers a new complementarity probe into hadronic physics at colliders. Note: This is a hybrid event. A zoom link will be distributed via the seminar mailing list. To join, email the organizer.
