QuastInstitut fur¨ Experimentelle KernphysikKorreferent: Prof. Dr. W. de BoerInstitut fur¨ Experimentelle Kernphysik’The Whole World is our Playground’A Jet-Based Approach to Measuring Soft Contributions to Proton Collisions with theCMS ExperimentThe early running stages of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) offered perfect conditions tostudy the Underlying Event (UE) in proton collisions. This term denotes all effects in col-lider events that are not directly related to the hard partonic interaction. As these effectsare present in all collisions, it is necessary to include them in Monte Carlo simulations. Itis however not possible to calculate UE contributions with means of perturbation theory,which makes the application of phenomenological models necessary. These models have tobe tuned to data, a process that has to be repeated at every newly accessed collision energy.
