Calculating the QCD Primary Lund Jet Plane Density

Sep 9, 2020, 2:00 PM


Andrew Lifson (Lund University)


The primary Lund Jet Plane has for several decades been a powerful tool for jet parton showers, jet substructure, and resummation. In 2018, Dreyer, Salam, and Soyez promoted this tool to a substructure observable used to discriminate boosted electroweak particles from the QCD background. Recently, Salam, Soyez, and I calculated the QCD density of emissions at next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy. This talk will focus on the recent work available at, part of which formed my master's thesis in 2018.
