Abstract: HA.00044 : Evaluation of Jet Substructure Observables for sPHENIX*
This analysis focuses on jet substructure by analyzing subjets, jets of smaller cone size contained within jets of larger cone size. Specifically, we examine the momentum fraction and opening angle of each event’s leading larger jet. Using simulated collision data from the sPHENIX Mock Data Challenge 2 along with background subtraction methods, these observables are calculated for truth pp collision data and reconstructed sPHENIX calorimeter data. The calculated observables are compared across data sets to assess whether those for the sPHENIX data set accurately reflect the true structure of the jets and can thus be analyzed by sPHENIX.
