Jet Reconstruction

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


A jet is a narrow cone of hadrons and other particles. Jets have to be defined by an algorithm and the definition of a jet is therefore unavoidably ambiguous; many jet finding algorithms exist and the best choice often depends on the topology of interest.
