PYTHIA 6.2: Physics and manual
The PYTHIA program can be used to generate high-energy-physics `events', i.e. sets of outgoing particles produced in the interactions between two incoming particles. The objective is to provide as
Correcting the Colour-Dipole Cascade Model with Fixed Order Matrix Elements
An algorithm is presented in which the Colour-Dipole Cascade Model as implemented in the ARIADNE program is corrected to match the fixed order tree-level matrix elements for e+e− → n jets. The result
Matching Parton Showers and Matrix Elements
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 different
Generic User Process Interface for Event Generators
Generic Fortran common blocks are presented for use by High Energy Physics event generators for the transfer of event configurations from parton level generators to showering and hadronization event
The Tools and Monte Carlo working group : Summary Report
This is the summary and introduction to the proceedings contributions for the Les Houches 2009 “Tools and Monte Carlo” working group.
Les Houches 2013: Physics at TeV Colliders: Standard Model Working Group Report
This Report summarizes the proceedings of the 2013 Les Houches workshop on Physics at TeV Colliders. Session 1 dealt primarily with (1) the techniques for calculating standard model multi-leg NLO and
The QCD/SM working group: Summary report
TLDR
A variety of tools were further developed, from methods to perform higher order perturbative calculations or various types of resummation, to improvements in the modeling of underlying events and parton showers, and various precise studies of important specific processes were conducted.
Robust Independent Validation of Experiment and Theory: Rivet version 3
First released in 2010, the Rivet library forms an important repository for analysis code, facilitating comparisons between measurements of the final state in particle collisions and theoretical
