    • Jet sampling: improving event reconstruction through multiple interpretations 

      Kahawala, Dilani; Krohn, David; Schwartz, Matthew D (Springer Nature, 2013)
      The classification of events involving jets as signal-like or background-like can depend strongly on the jet algorithm used and its parameters. This is partly due to the fact that standard jet algorithms yield a single ...
    • Stable Colored Particles R-SUSY Relics or Not? 

      Buckley, Matthew R.; Echenard, Bertrand; Kahawala, Dilani S; Randall, Lisa (Springer, 2011)
      R-hadrons are only one of many possible stable colored states that the LHC might produce. All such particles would provide a spectacular, if somewhat unusual, signal at ATLAS and CMS. Produced in large numbers and leaving ...
    • Topics on Hadron Collider Physics 

      Kahawala, Dilani S (2013-10-08)
      In this dissertation we present four techniques that could be used at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to improve the efficiency with which collected data is utilized, and to help detect signals of physics beyond the Standard ...
