Abstract

In this paper we consider particle production at a future circular hadron collider with 100 TeV center-of-mass energy within the Standard Model, and in particular their QCD aspects. Accurate predictions for these processes pose severe theoretical challenges related to large hierarchies of scales and possible large multiplicities of final-state particles. We investigate scaling patterns in multijet-production rates allowing to extrapolate predictions to very high final-state multiplicities. Furthermore, we consider large-area QCD jets and study the expectation for the mean number of subjets to be reconstructed from their constituents and confront these with analytical resummed predictions and with the expectation for boosted hadronic decays of top quarks and W bosons. We also discuss the validity of Higgs effective field theory in making predictions for Higgs-boson production in association with jets. Finally, we consider the case of new physics searches at such a 100 TeV hadron-collider machine and discuss the expectations for corresponding Standard-Model background processes.
