Abstract

Following the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2013, various studies have been made in order to examine the effects and related collisions that produce it. For High-Luminosity experiments at the LHC, the most important of these types is Vector Boson Fusion (VBF). These VBF jets tend to align in the region of the CMS detector most closely related to pileup jets, however, making them difficult to trigger using the CMS’s Level-1 Trigger. The study aimed to use a combination of MonteCarlo generated data and LHC recombined jets in order to map the topology of VBF jets in this region. By analyzing different reconstruction methods, the study yielded a steady topology of the VBF mechanism and its occurence in the HL-LHC.
