Think harder, think deeper: new ideas in jet physics

Marzo 3, 2021@11:00 am–12:00 pm

Seminario di Fenomenologia – Dr. Simone Marzani ( di Fisica Universita’ di Genova e INFN Sezione di Genova)

In this talk some recent developments in the context of jet physics and their structure are reviewed. In particular, new substructure variables that aim to probe colour flow in particle events are introduced. These variables find a natural application in the context of tagging a boosted Higgs boson. In the second part of the talk, the use of machine-learning algorithms in the context of jet physics is reviewed and the first attempts to achieve a systematic first-principle understanding of their performance is discussed.
