Title: Jet substructure in high-energy hadron collisions
 
Abstract: Collimated jets of hadrons serve as precision tests of the standard model and in particular QCD. For example, inclusive jet and jet substructure observables have been applied extensively to constrain parton distribution functions and to probe the hot and dense medium created in heavy-ion collisions, as well as to the search for physics beyond the standard model. In this talk, I will mainly focus on recent theoretical developments based on the effective field theory approach to jet physics. This newly established framework allows for precision calculations of jet cross sections and enables a direct comparison of experimental data and first principles calculations of jet substructure observables. In addition, I will discuss a new approach to QCD factorization of jet cross sections in heavy-ion collisions.
