Absolute cross sections are the most fundamental measurements to be made in collision experiments. They represent the proportionality constant between the luminosity characterising the performance of a particle accelerator and event count rates in an experiment. After introducing some basic terminology, measurements of inclusive jet, dijet, and 3-jet cross sections and their use in determining SM parameters are presented.
