Description

We introduce a jet shape observable, N-subjettiness, that helps to discriminate the fat jet from a highly boosted color singlet particle decaying to N partons and the QCD jet. As an illustration, a toy scheme for the light Standard Model Higgs search via fully hadronic decay channels from `pp -> H W/Z' is suggested. Issues regarding the subjet definition as required by the N-subjettiness are discussed for both the SISCone and the anti-kT jet algorithm.
