The SISCone Jet Algorithm

Version 2.0.6



SISCone is a Seedless Infrared Safe Cone jet algorithm.

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

News (April 9th 2013): We have released a new version of SISCone (v2.0.6). Relative to version 2.0.5, it mostly brings minor improvements to the header installation and build system. This version will be available in FastJet (>=3.0.4).

News (March 16th 2009): We have released a new version of SISCone (v2.0.0). The main improvement is that SISCone now includes an implementation in spherical coordinates allowing one to cluster e+e- events. This version is available with FastJet(>=2.4.0).

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