Abstract

Subjet multiplicity distributions of two jets with highest transverse momenta are simulated in proton-proton collisions at LHC energies of 7 TeV and 14 TeV. Jets are defined via the software package FastJet version 3.0.3 which includes the implementation of sequential recombination algorithm with a jet size of . Subjets are resolved by rerunning the algorithm on the jets and using the resolution cutoff of . The subjet multiplicity distributions and their average values are measured as a function of the jet momenta and upto rapidities . The results are used to calculate the ratio, .
