In poetry:

The morning paper clocked the headline hour
You drank your coffee lke original sin,
And at the jet-plane anger of God's roar
Got up to let the suave blue policeman in.

In science:

This means that particles which propagate along very different directions with respect to the collision axis preserve nevertheless a common direction of motion (close to that of the triggered jet) in the transverse plane.
Multiparticle Dynamics in the LHC Era
This would constrain the duration of the ULX active phase; i) searching for compact radio jets down to a sensitivity of ∼ 1µJy will constrain the BH mass, in relation to other classes of accreting BHs in the fundamental plane.
Ultraluminous X-ray Sources in the Chandra and XMM-Newton Era
Jets are reconstructed as clustered energy depositions in the calorimeter towers using a cone algorithm, with The missing transverse energy E/T , calculated as the vector sum of all the calorimeter tower energy depositions pro jected to the transverse plane, is used to determine the presence of neutrinos in the event.
Searches For The Standard Model Higgs Boson in final states with tau leptons at the Tevatron
To be specific, we consider correlations of a forward and a central jet (Fig. 1), and investigate the associated transverse energy flow as a function of pseudorapidity and azimuthal angle in the transverse plane .
Energy flow observables in hadronic collisions
It basically assumes that the soft part of the partonic spectrum of the parton shower is taken out of the jet to large angles due to broadening (brownian motion in the transverse plane) with an additional energy loss due to BMDPS.
