Abstract: The LHC is the first collider where particles with mass at the electroweak scale can be produced with momenta much higher than their mass. The decay products of these particles are very boosted, and Hadronic decays would be reconstructed as a single "fat" jet. In the last few years there has been a great wealth of studies in the field of hadronic jet substructure to reconstruct these final states. In this seminar I will review the main phenomenological ideas, as well as the first experimental results using jet substructure as a tool to explore new and old physics.
