The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator. Its high-energy collisions have the potential to create new heavy states that decay into a plethora of particles through a long decay chain. The reconstruction of what happened during the particle collision is therefore a very challenging endeavor. This can get even more difficult when the particles are very collimated due to a high Lorentz boost. The final state particles will then typically be collected in a single object, called jet. In this case, one needs to investigate the substructure of the jet to understand its nature. In this presentation, I will explain the techniques used to explore jet substructure by means of diboson resonance searches performed at the CMS Experiment.
