We present a new tree-level matrix element generator, based on the color dressed Berends-Giele recursive relations. We discuss two new algorithms for phase space integration, dedicated to be used with large multiplicities and color sampling.

Efficient matrix-element matching with sector showers
TLDR
An implementation in the publicly available Vincia plug-in to the Pythia 8 event generator, for hadronic Z0 decays including tree-level matrix elements through $ \mathcal{O}\alpha_s^4 $ and total rates can be augmented to NLO precision in a straightforward way.
How to calculate colourful cross sections efficiently
Different methods for the calculation of cross sections with many QCD particles are compared. To this end, CSW vertex rules, Berends-Giele recursion and Feynman-diagram based techniques are

TLDR
Kaleu is an independent, true phase space generator, written in Fortran, such that it can independently deal with several scattering processes in parallel.

These lectures give a pedagogical discussion of the computation of QCD tree amplitudes for collider physics. The tools reviewed are spinor products, color ordering, MHV amplitudes, and the

In these proceedings we report our progress in the development of the publicly available C++ library NJet for accurate calculations of high-multiplicity one-loop amplitudes. As a phenomenological
Calculating gluon one-loop amplitudes numerically
TLDR
The algorithm implemented in form of a C++ code closely follows the method by Ellis, Giele, Kunszt and Melnikov for calculating one-loop amplitudes semi-numerically using generalized unitarity techniques.
The BlackHat Library for One-Loop Amplitudes
TLDR
The use of n-tuples to separate the lengthy matrix-element computations from the analysis process allows many analyses to be carried out on the same phase-space samples, and allows experimenters to conduct their own analyses using the original NLO computation.
