Plenary Talk Session


Qiang Li (Peking University (CN))


We present new results from searches for beyond-the-standard model physics with highly boosted Higgs and vector bosons in the final state. The talk summarizes the use of large-radius jets and substructure techniques used for the reconstruction and identification of fully-merged hadronic decays of these particles. New techniques to estimate the standard model backgrounds are discussed. The searches cover a variety of models, such as two-Higgs-doublet models or generic heavy resonances decaying to bosons.
