The energy distribution of subjets and the jet shape

We present a framework that describes the energy distribution of subjets of radius r within a jet of radius R. We consider both an inclusive sample of subjets as well as subjets centered around a predetermined axis, from which the jet shape can be obtained. For r ≪ R we factorize the physics at angular scales r and R to resum the logarithms of r/R. For central subjets, we consider ...

Effective field theory approach to open heavy flavor production in heavy-ion collisions

We develop a version of Soft Collinear Effective Theory (SCET) which includes finite quark masses, as well as Glauber gluons that describe the interaction of collinear partons with QCD matter. In the framework of this new effective field theory, labeled SCETM,G, we derive the massive splitting functions in the vacuum and the QCD medium for the processes Q → Qg, Q → gQ and \( g\to ...

Jet substructure using semi-inclusive jet functions in SCET

We propose a new method to evaluate jet substructure observables in inclusive jet measurements, based upon semi-inclusive jet functions in the framework of Soft Collinear Effective Theory (SCET). As a first example, we consider the jet fragmentation function, where a hadron h is identified inside a fully reconstructed jet. We introduce a new semi-inclusive fragmenting jet function ...

The semi-inclusive jet function in SCET and small radius resummation for inclusive jet production

We introduce a new kind of jet function: the semi-inclusive jet function J i (z, ω J , μ), which describes how a parton i is transformed into a jet with a jet radius R and energy fraction z = ω J /ω, with ω J and ω being the large light-cone momentum component of the jet and the corresponding parton i that initiates the jet, respectively. Within the framework of Soft Collinear ...

Jet fragmentation functions in proton-proton collisions using soft-collinear effective theory

The jet fragmentation function describes the longitudinal momentum distribution of hadrons inside a reconstructed jet. We study the jet fragmentation function in proton-proton collisions in the framework of soft-collinear effective theory (SCET). We find that, up to power corrections, the jet fragmentation function can be expressed as the ratio of the fragmenting jet function and ...
