Preparing ATLAS for the Measurement of Dijet Angular Distributions at \(\sqrt{s} = 7\,\hbox{TeV}\)

  • Nele Boelaert
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


This chapter describes a Monte Carlo study aimed at preparing ATLAS for the measurement of dijet angular distributions, by establishing the measurement procedure, investigating experimental and theoretical uncertainties, discussing unfolding issues, and studying the sensitivity to gravity mediated processes that were discussed in Chap. 5.
