Abstract

This paper reviews several recent measurements at the Fermilab Tevatron, including cross sections for inclusive jet, dijet production, cross sections for electroweak boson (W or Z) production in association with inclusive or heavy-flavor (b or c) jets, and b-jet shapes. In addition, searches for new physics using the dijet angular distributions are discussed. These analyses are based on integrated luminosities of 0.3-2.5 fb-1 of pp̄ collisions at √s = 1.96 TeV, collected with the CDF and DØ detectors. The results directly test the leading order and next-to leading order calculations of perturbative quantum chromodynamics and provide constraints on the parton distribution functions and physics beyond the standard model.
