Topological study of three-jet events in ALICE

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The ALICE experiment at LHC is dedicated to study matter formed in heavy-ion collisions, but also has a strong physics program for pp collisions. In these collisions, protons will collide at energies never reached before under laboratory conditions. At the high energies, ALICE will enable us to study jet physics in detail, especially the production of multiple jet events, setting the baseline for heavy-ion. Three-jet events allow us to examine the properties of quark and gluon jets, providing a suitable tool for testing QCD experimentally. We discuss the selection method and topology of three-jet events in ALICE. The analysis was performed on two PYTHIA data sets, both involving pp collisions at √s = 14 TeV with enhanced jet production. The results from the dedicated jet MC production are discussed and compared to previous studies at CDF and Dø. We investigate the possibilities to determine gluon jet candidates.
