Jets and quantum fields for LHC and future colliders

Jets are one of the most common objects observed in high energy particle collider experiments. Jets consist of a number very energetic collimated stable hadrons and their distribution and shape can be used to learn about the high-energy process that took place when the initial particles collided. A good understanding of jets is the basis of carrying out measurements at all modern collider experiments such as the Large-Hadron-Collider (LHC) currently taking data at CERN, at B-factories or a future Linear Collider. The properties and a precise theoretical understanding of jets are in particular important in the search of physics beyond the Standard Model as a high degree of precision is required to distinguish whether jets were produced from the decay of new elementary particles or from known Standard Model ones.

The intention of the workshop is to have an "Aspen"-type meeting with physicists having a strong theoretical interests in both conceptual and phenomenological aspects of jets. Each participant will be provided an office space and there will be (only!) a few talks that are intended to generate discussion given by selected participants during each week. The emphasis is on having informal discussions with other participants and on getting some stimulating work done by getting together.

Participation is by invitation only.
