The automated computation of tree-level and next-to-leading order differential cross sections, and their matching to parton shower simulations
A bstractWe discuss the theoretical bases that underpin the automation of the computations of tree-level and next-to-leading order cross sections, of their matching to parton shower simulations, andExpand

MadEvent: Automatic event generation with MadGraph
We present a new multi-channel integration method and its implementation in the multi-purpose event generator MadEvent, which is based on MadGraph. Given a process, MadGraph automatically identifiesExpand

New color decompositions for gauge amplitudes at tree and loop level
Recently, a color decomposition using structure constants was introduced for purely gluonic tree amplitudes, in a compact form involving only the linearly independent subamplitudes. We give twoExpand

Comparative study of various algorithms for the merging of parton showers and matrix elements in hadronic collisions
We compare different procedures for combining fixed-order tree-level matrix-element generators with parton showers. We use the case of W-production at the Tevatron and the LHC to compare differentExpand

Higgs production via vector-boson fusion at NNLO in QCD
We present the total cross sections at next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) in the strong coupling for Higgs production via weak boson fusion. Our results are obtained via the structure functionExpand

Factorization of tree QCD amplitudes in the high-energy limit and in the collinear limit
Abstract In the high-energy limit, we compute the gauge-invariant three-parton forward clusters, which in the BFKL theory constitute the tree parts of the NNLO impact factors. In the triple collinearExpand

Higgs production in association with bottom quarks
A bstractWe study the production of a Higgs boson in association with bottom quarks in hadronic collisions, and present phenomenological predictions relevant to the 13 TeV LHC. Our results areExpand
