Abstract
We present a Monte Carlo study of dijet angular distributions at root s = 14 TeV. First we perform a next-to- leading order QCD study; we calculate the distributions in four different bins of dijet invariant mass using different Monte Carlo programs and different jet algorithms, and we also investigate the systematic uncertainties coming from the choice of the parton distribution functions and the renormalization and factorization scales. In the second part of this paper, we present the effects on the distributions coming from a model including gravitational scattering and black hole formation in a world with large extra dimensions. Assuming a 25% systematic uncertainty, we report a discovery potential for the mass bin 1 < M-jj < 2... (More)
