Searches for new phenomena in inclusive and tagged dijet distributions at √s = 13 TeV
Summary, in English
Another approach is to have a more inclusive selection and not only look at the invariant mass spectrum, but also the angular distribution of the two jets. This makes it possible to look for non-resonant signals like those coming from a contact interaction with a compositeness scale, Λ, which is much higher than the center of mass energy at the Large Hadron Collider. Limits are set on this theory by using 37 fb−1 of data. Studies, conducted to improve this analysis, are also presented.
A prerequisite to perform these searches is to have well-calibrated jets. Different methods are used to calibrate the jets at different transverse momentum, pT, ranges. In order to calibrate high pT jets, the calorimeter response to the single particles, that make up the jet, is studied. In this way it is possible to estimate the uncertainty on the jet energy scale at the highest pT, where there are very few events in data.
