Abstract

In QCD, two-jet events result when an incoming parton from one hadron scatters off an incoming parton from the other hadron and produces two high transverse momentum partons which are observed as jets. From momentum conservation, the two final-state partons are produced with equal and opposite momenta in the center-of-mass frame of the subprocess. If only two partons are produced, and the relatively small intrinsic transverse momentum of the incoming partons is neglected, the two jets will also be back-to-back in azimuth and balanced in transverse momentum in the laboratory frame.
