Title: Search for Contact Interactions using Dijet Angular Distributions with the ATLAS Detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider
Authors: DeViveiros, Pier-Olivier
Advisor: Savard, Pierre
Department: Physics
Keywords: Dijet Angular Distributions
Contact Interactions
Issue Date: 6-Jan-2012
Abstract: The LHC, with its center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, offers the chance to investigate the fundamental constituents of matter at a higher energy scale than ever before. Using the data acquired by the ATLAS detector in the summer of 2010, two different measures of the angular distributions of dijet final states are studied and compared to Standard Model QCD expectations. Such a comparison is used to set new stringent limits on the existence of quark substructure.
