Title: Towards an understanding of jet substructure


Jet substructure has proven itself to be an important tool to probe new physics at high scales at the LHC. It is likely to become even more essential in forthcoming LHC running at 13–14 TeV. However, jet substructure approaches suffer from the drawback that they are rather complicated, making it difficult to obtain insight and reliable calculations of their behaviour.
This talk will describe progress towards understanding three key jet substructure tools, using analytical QCD methods and will show how this progress is leading to improvements in jet substructure approaches.
