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 (April 24 2020): We have
released a new version of SISCone (v3.0.5). This minor release fixes a signed/unsigned warning in bitshift operations (thanks to Andrii Verbytskyi).|
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(>=3.3.4).
The algorithm is described in the publication
JHEP 05 (2007) 086
[arXiv:0704.0292 [hep-ph]]. See
