Vbfnlo is a fully flexible parton level Monte Carlo program for the simulation of vector boson fusion, double and triple vector boson production in hadronic collisions at next-to-leading order in the strong coupling constant. Vbfnlo includes Higgs and vector boson decays with full spin correlations and all off-shell effects. In addition, Vbfnlo implements(More)
We compare different procedures for combining fixed-order tree-level matrixelement generators with parton showers. We use the case of W-production at the Tevatron and the LHC to compare different implementations of the so-called CKKW and MLM schemes using different matrix-element generators and different parton cascades. We find that although similar(More)
We present the system for versioning two packages: the TAUOLA of τ -lepton decay and PHOTOS for radiative corrections in decays. The following features can be chosen in an automatic or semi-automatic way: (1) format of the common block HEPEVT; (2) version of the physics input (for TAUOLA): as published, as initialized by the CLEO collaboration, as(More)
In this study, two PCR-based methods (MSP-PCR and PCR-MP) were compared for their abilities to identify intraspecies variations of 23 isolates of Trichophyton rubrum, 78 isolates of Trichophyton interdigitale and 22 isolates of Microsporum canis, obtained mainly from patients in Lódź city. The results allowed to distinguish four types (containing two(More)
We explore the potential of the CERN Large Hadron Collider to access a strongly interacting electroweak symmetry breaking sector via weak boson scattering with W+W−jj, ZZjj and WZjj final states. As examples of models with scalar or vector resonances we concentrate on a scenario with a heavy Higgs boson and on a Warped Higgsless Kaluza-Klein model of narrow(More)
We demonstrate that a measurement of the impact parameter in one-prong τ decay can be useful for the determination of the Higgs boson parity in the H/A → τ+τ−; τ → ρν̄τ (ντ ) decay chain. We have estimated that for a detection set-up such as TESLA, use of the information from the τ impact parameter can improve the significance of the measurement of the(More)
A genomic in situ hybridization (GISH)-based method for dermatophyte identification has been developed. Using specific GISH probes, discrimination between Trichophyton interdigitale, Trichophyton rubrum and Microsporum canis has been conducted. Moreover, GISH has been found particularly helpful when proper dermatophyte identification was difficult due to(More)
