TBA - Something involving heavy ions, Work In Progress.
Accounting for redundancies among higher-dimensional operators is necessary in any Effective Field Theory, and has historically been a source of confusion in its applications to the Standard Model. Even while the procedure is now well-understood, reducing an arbitrary set of operators onto an agreed basis is still a time-consuming step arising in matching a given UV completion to an EFT, and...
We introduce a new jet substructure method based on a recursive
iteration of the Soft Drop algorithm. The recursive soft drop
algorithm introduces an additional parameter N to define the
number of layers of soft drop declustering, providing an
optimized grooming strategy for boosted objects with (N+1)-prong
decays, as well as improved stability in high pileup
conditions. We discuss the...
I will present a calculation of the next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD corrections to the hadroproduction process gg→ZZ→e+e−μ+μ−, matched to the parton shower in the POWHEG framework.
In dealing with the referees comments for JHEP we found a couple of issues, which we'll discuss.
