Coherent Showers for the LHC

We present a full-fledged antenna shower for hadron collisions in the Vincia framework and focus on initial state radiation. The current version of the shower is limited to massless QCD partons and

The VINCIA Antenna Shower for Hadron Colliders

We summarise the main features of VINCIA's antenna-based treatment of QCD initial- and finalstate showers, which includes iterated tree-level matrix-element corrections and automated evaluations of

Sector showers for hadron collisions

In conventional parton showers (including ones based on dipoles/antennae), a given (Born + m )-parton configuration can typically be reached via O ( m !) different “shower histories”. In the context

Helicity-dependent showers and matching with VINCIA

This work combines the shower with VINCIA's multiplicative approach to matrix-element matching, generalized to operate on each helicity configuration separately, resulting in a substantial gain in computational speed for high parton multiplicities.

VINCIA 1 for Hadron Colliders

We present the first public implementation of antenna-based QCD initial- and finalstate showers. The shower kernels are 2 ! 3 antenna functions, which capture not only the collinear dynamics but also

Coherent showers in decays of colored resonances

We present a new approach to coherent parton showers in the decays of coloured resonances, based on the notion of "resonance-final" (RF) QCD antennae. A full set of mass- and helicity-dependent $2\to

The midpoint between dipole and parton showers

We present a new parton-shower algorithm. Borrowing from the basic ideas of dipole cascades, the evolution variable is judiciously chosen as the transverse momentum in the soft limit. This leads to a

The midpoint between dipole and parton showers

Creating Unique Parton Shower Histories with Sector Showers

In conventional parton showers (including ones based on dipoles/antennae), a given $(\mathrm{Born}+m)$-parton configuration can typically be reached via ${\mathcal O}(m!)$ different "shower

Timelike Dipole Antenna Showers with Massive Fermions

We present a complete formalism for final-state (timelike) dipole-antenna showers including fermion masses, but neglecting polarization and finite-width effects. We make several comparisons of

Initial-state showering based on colour dipoles connected to incoming parton lines

A parton-shower model for hadronic collisions based on the emission properties of QCD dipoles is proposed. This proposal therefore extends the well-known radiation pattern of pure final-state colour

Spin-dependent antenna splitting functions

We consider parton showers based on radiation from QCD dipoles or ``antennas''. These showers are built from $2\ensuremath{\rightarrow}3$ parton splitting processes. The question then arises of what

Coherent parton showers with local recoils

We outline a new formalism for dipole-type parton showers which maintain exact energy-momentum conservation at each step of the evolution. Particular emphasis is put on the coherence properties, the

Transverse-momentum-ordered showers and interleaved multiple interactions

Abstract.We propose a sophisticated framework for high-energy hadronic collisions, wherein different QCD physics processes are interleaved in a common sequence of falling transverse-momentum values.

A Simple shower and matching algorithm

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

QCD coherence and the top quark asymmetry

A bstractCoherent QCD radiation in the hadroproduction of top quark pairs leads to a forward-backward asymmetry that grows more negative with increasing transverse momentum of the pair. This feature

Higher-order corrections to timelike jets

We present a simple formalism for the evolution of timelike jets in which tree-level matrix element corrections can be systematically incorporated, up to arbitrary parton multiplicities and over all
