Experimental physics


Jet clustering algorithms are widely used to analyse hadronic events in high energy collisions. Recently a new clustering method, known as ‘Cambridge’, has been introduced. In this article we present an algorithm to determine the transition values of \(y_{\mathrm{cut}}\) for this clustering scheme, which allows to resolve any event to a definite number of jets in the final state. We discuss some particularities of the Cambridge clustering method and compare its performance to the Durham clustering scheme for Monte Carlo generated \(\mathrm{e^+e^-}\) annihilation events.
