### A study of longitudinal Hadronic shower leakage and the development of a correction for its associated effects at √s = 8 TeV with the ATLAS detector

Abstract:

In the high energy environment of the Large Hadron Collider, there is a finite probability for the longitudinal tail of the hadronic shower represented by a jet to leak out of the calorimeter, commonly referred to as longitudinal hadronic shower leakage, or jet “punchthrough”. This thesis prescribes a method for identifying such “punch-through” jets via the use of muon activity found behind a jet in the ATLAS muon spectrometer, finding an occurrence rate of up to 18% in the worst affected ...
