The SISCone Jet Algorithm

Version 3.0.2



SISCone is a Seedless Infrared Safe Cone jet algorithm.

It was developped by Gavin Salam and Gregory Soyez. It is available as a library, as a standalone program or as a FastJet (>= 2.1) plugin.

News (March 16th 2016): We have released a new version of SISCone (v3.0.2). It fixed a minor bug with an uninitialized array (no impact on results) and made minor modifications to the build system.
Relative to the 2.0.X series, SISCone 3.0.X adds the option of running SISCone with progressive removal (instead of the standard split-merge step). This version will be available in FastJet(>=3.2.0).

The algorithm is described in the publication JHEP 05 (2007) 086 [arXiv:0704.0292 [hep-ph]]. See the links below for more detailed information.
