Jet Measurement

Part of the Springer Tracts in Modern Physics book series (STMP, volume 268)


This chapter introduces the necessary experimental concepts and tools needed for a generic jet analysis at the LHC. The sections are ordered in a similar way as they would typically appear in an experimental publication and start with a synopsis of the measuring apparatus.
