Production of High Transverse Momentum Vector Bosons Reconstructed as Single Jets at ATLAS and its Application to Search for New Physics at the LHC

Highly boosted hadronically decaying particles have been widely used as a unique signature to search for new physics at the LHC. In this talk, we present a measurement of the cross-section for high transverse momentum W and Z bosons produced in pp collisions and decaying to all-hadronic final states by ATLAS experiment. The measurement is performed by reconstructing boosted W or Z bosons in single jets. The reconstructed jet mass is used to identify the W and Z bosons, and a jet substructure method based on energy cluster information in the jet center-of-mass frame is used to suppress the large multi-jet background. In this talk, we will also discuss potential applications of the jet substructure in the jet rest frame in searches for new physics at the LHC.
