Inclusive Jet Production at the LHC meets an Old Friend – the Pi0

Speaker: Frank Taylor



A phenomenology developed over 40 years ago to describe Pi0 meson production measured in one of the very early experiments at Fermi Lab is applied to recent measurements of inclusive jet production at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Some surprising systematic effects are uncovered. The fun and consternation of trying to explain what is seen will be discussed.


Suggested audience: 1st year graduate students with some familiarity with high energy physics.
