The fragmentation of heavy quarks into jets of particles has been studied in many environments. Those studies have proven a huge boon for the successful top, Higgs, and BSM programs of the LHC experiments. However, our knowledge of heavy quark fragmentation remains a limiting factor in a range of key experimental measurements, such as the determination of the top-quark mass, the Higgs couplings to second-generation quarks, and the strange-quark content of the proton. We will motivate a better understanding of this process, survey recent experimental work to pin it down more precisely, and explore how we may improve for the future of the precision frontier.
