        Automating Basis Reduction for Effective Lagrangians in FeynRules 30m

        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 at each order in perturbation theory where this plays a key role in renormalizing the theory.

        Emulating the procedure used to derive the `Warsaw' basis of the dimension-six SMEFT, work to automate this reduction will be discussed using FeynRules, with the aim of providing a tool which will be useful in SMEFT calculations and lend itself to future generalization, e.g. to the construction of operator bases for theories beyond the SM, and eliminating redundancies in operators of still higher mass dimension.

        Recursive Soft Drop 30m

        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 infinite N limit, where groomed jets
        have a null area, and investigate their properties. We show
        promising applications to jet mass resolution in boosted top and
        W bosons, and demonstrate how recursive soft drop grooming can
        substantially mitigate pileup effects when used in conjunction
        with existing pileup-removal methods.
