  • We present a simple formalism for parton-shower Markov chains. As a first step towards more complete ''uncertainty bands,'' we incorporate a comprehensive exploration of the ambiguities inherent in such calculations. To reduce this uncertainty, we then introduce a matching formalism which allows a generated event sample to simultaneously reproduce any infrared-safe distribution calculated at leading or next-to-leading order in perturbation theory, up to subleading corrections. To enable a more… CONTINUE READING
