About this book

This book reviews the latest experimental results on jet physics from proton-proton collisons at the LHC. Jets allow to determine the strong coupling constant over a wide range of energies up the highest ones possible so far, and to constrain the gluon parton distribution of the proton, both of which are important uncertainties on theory predictions in general and for the Higgs boson in particular.A novel approach in this book is to categorize the examined quantities according to the types of absolute, ratio, or shape measurements and to explain in detail the advantages and differences. Including numerous illustrations and tables the physics message and impact of each observable is clearly elaborated.

About the authors


Klaus Rabbertz obtained his Ph.D. in 1998 at the RWTH Aachen for researchperformed within the H1 experiment at the electron-proton collider HERA. As aCERN research fellow he worked within the OPAL experiment at the e+e- colliderLEP. Since 2002, he is a member of the CMS Collaboration at the LHC as seniorscientist for the University of Karlsruhe, now Karlsruhe Institute of Technology(KIT). Initially, he spearheaded the worldwide deployment of the CMS softwareand was the senior production manager for CMS at the German Tier 1 computingsite GridKa. Since 2007, he lead physics working groups for CMS and lectured onjet physics. He is recognised as one of the most prominent researchers on QCD andjets at the LHC.
