We present the latest developments of the MadGraph/MadEvent Monte Carlo event generator and several applications to hadron collider physics. In the current version events at the parton, hadron and detector level can be generated directly from a web interface, for arbitrary processes in the Standard Model and in several physics scenarios beyond it (HEFT,… (More)

We present a new multi-channel integration method and its implementation in the multipurpose event generator MadEvent, which is based on MadGraph. Given a process, MadGraph automatically identifies all the relevant subprocesses, generates both the amplitudes and the mappings needed for an efficient integration over the phase space, and passes them to… (More)

We present a study of effects of QCD radiation in the production of heavy colored states, employing inclusive multi-jet samples obtained by matching matrix elements and parton showers. We discuss several examples showing that matched samples are in general not only more accurate than a parton shower alone, but also often indispensable to make reliable… (More)

Vector-boson fusion and associated production at the LHC can provide key information on the strength and structure of the Higgs couplings to the Standard Model particles. Using an effective field theory approach, we study the effects of next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD corrections matched to a parton shower on selected observables for various spin-0… (More)

We analyse W boson production at hadron colliders in association with one or two jets, both with the exact kinematics and in the high-energy limit. We argue that the configurations that are kinematically favoured tend to have the W boson forward in rapidity. Thus W boson production in association with jets lends itself naturally to extensions to the… (More)

The strongest constraint on V tb presently comes from the 3 × 3 unitarity of the CKM matrix, which fixes V tb to be very close to one. If the unitarity is relaxed, current information from top production at Tevatron still leaves open the possibility that V tb is sizably smaller than one. In minimal extensions of the standard model with extra heavy quarks,… (More)

A general expression for the scattering amplitude of nonrelativistic spinless particles in the Aharonov-Bohm gauge potential is obtained within the time independent formalism. The result is valid also in the backward and forward directions as well as for any choice of the boundary conditions on the wave function at the flux tube position.

We present the complete automation of the universal subtraction formalism proposed by Frixione, Kunszt, and Signer for the computation of any cross section at the next-to-leading order in QCD. Given a process, the only ingredient to be provided externally is the infrared-and ultraviolet-finite contribution of virtual origin. Our implementation, currently… (More)

We present an application that automatically writes the Helas library corresponding to the Feynman rules of any Lagrangian, renormalizable or not, in quantum field theory. The code, written in Python, takes the Universal Feyn-Rules Output (Ufo) as an input and produces the complete set of routines (wave-functions and amplitudes) that are needed for the… (More)

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 two proofs that this decomposition holds for an arbitrary number of gluons. We also present and prove similar decompositions at one loop, both for pure gluon amplitudes… (More)
