Abstract: Top quarks produced from the decay of a heavy particle will have large boost and their decay products will be highly collimated. The conventional search techniques will not work in this case. At the LHC, a heavy gauge boson decaying into top quark or a generic supersymmetric cascade can be a source of boosted top quark. The recently proposed jet substructure algorithm can be very useful in identifying such boosted top quarks. In a similar way it is also possible to identify Higgs bosons of supersymmetric standard model.
