Article: Calculating Track-Based Observables for the LHC Authors: Hsi-Ming Chang, Massimiliano Procura, Jesse Thaler, and Wouter J. Waalewijn Reference: arXiv:1303.6637 [hep-ph] With the LHC churning out hordes of data by the picosecond, theorists often have to work closely with experimentalists to test various theories, devise models, etc. In order to make sure they’re developing the […]
Article: Performance of algorithms that reconstruct missing transverse momentum in √s = 8 TeV proton-proton collisions in the ATLAS detector Authors: The ATLAS Collaboration Reference: arXiv:1609.09324 The ATLAS experiment recently released a note detailing the nature and performance of algorithms designed to calculate what is perhaps the most difficult quantity in any LHC event: missing transverse […]
Article: Indirect probes of the trilinear Higgs Coupling Authors: Martin Gorbahn, Ulrich Haisch Reference: 1607.03773 Hello particle munchers, I’m back to further discuss our good friend the Higgs boson. After its discovery in 2012, there are many properties of the Higgs boson which have since been established. In addition to its spin-0 nature and measuring its mass with high […]
