Plenary Talk Session


Reyer Edmond Band (University of California Davis (US))


We present new results from searches for beyond-the-standard model physics with highly boosted top quarks in the final state, where the reconstruction and identification of fully-merged hadronic top quark decays is an essential tool. The talk summaries the use of large-radius jets and substructure techniques in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV. The searches cover a variety of models, such as heavy resonances decaying to top quarks, pair and single production of vector-like quarks, and the production of third generation squarks.
