Jet physics is an incredibly rich subject detailing the narrow cone of hadrons and other particles produced by the hadronization of a quark or gluon in a particle physics or heavy ion experiment. This book is a general overview of jet physics for scientists not directly involved in the field. It presents the basic experimental and theoretical problems arising when dealing with jets, and describing the solutions proposed in recent years.

About the Author
Dr. Andrea Banfi is a Lecturer by the University of Sussex. He obtained his PhD in Physics in 2002 and has worked for many renowned institutions active in high-energy physics. His research is focused on the phenomenology of particle physics, in particular on the study of hadronic jets at hadron colliders. His main contribution is the development of a theoretical framework to perform precision predictions for observables involving jets in Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD).
