Abstract

I briefly summarize
the potential of the LHC to produce boosted objects and that of the experiments
to recognize them as such analyzing jet substructure. Then, I consider boosted
top quarks in some detail, the boosted object that has probably been most extensively
studied. I evaluate ATLAS ttbar resonance searches to understand how and why
dedicated algorithms outperform more classical techniques. Finally, I discuss a
number of analyses where boosted techniques are likely to make a difference
