Dr. Hsiang-nan Li successfully explained jet observables at hadron colliders using Quantum Field Theory

Post Date:2011-10-05

Dr. Hsiang-nan Li developed a theoretical framework for studying jet observables through a collaboration with researchers of Michigan State University, which is based on the perturbative QCD resummation. Using this framework, they have successfully explained jet distributions in invariant mass and jet energy profiles measured by Fermilab and Large Hadron Collider. Jet observables have been used to identfy particles produced at hadron colliders, whose predictions always rely on Event Generators. Dr. Li`s work realized the goal of studying these observables using Quantum Field Theory for the first time. This new development has been published in Physical Review Letters.
