While Monte Carlo event generators like WHIZARD have become indispensable tools in studying the impact of new physics on collider observables over the last decades, the implementation of new models in such packages has remained a rather awkward and error-prone process. Recently, the FeynRules package was introduced which greatly simplifies this process by providing a single unified model format from which model implementations for many different Monte Carlo codes can be derived automatically… 
Anomalous couplings, resonances and unitarity in vector boson scattering
The Standard Model of particle physics has proved itself as a reliable theory to describe interactions of elementary particles. However, many questions concerning the Higgs sector and the associated
C.9 Precision Monte Carlo simulations with WHIZARD 9 Precision Monte Carlo simulations with WHIZARD
The precision physics programmes of the FCC-ee demand for a precise simulation of all Standard Model (SM) processes and possible beyond-the-SM (BSM) signals in a state-of-the-art way by means of
Supersymmetry - When Theory Inspires Experimental Searches
We review, in the first part of this work, many pioneering works on supersymmetry and organize these results to show how supersymmetric quantum field theories arise from spin-statistics, N{\oe}ther
Initial state QED radiation aspects for future $e^+e^-$ colliders
This white paper concerns theoretical and phenomenological aspects relevant to the physics of future e+e− colliders, in particular regarding initial-state QED radiation. The contributions each

An overview of available numerical tools for performing phenomenological studies related to the new physics predicted by composite scenarios focuses on model-independent constructions and aims at identifying the differences and connections between the implementations of numerical models.
Precision test of the muon-Higgs coupling at a high-energy muon collider
Abstract We explore the sensitivity of directly testing the muon-Higgs coupling at a high-energy muon collider. This is strongly motivated if there exists new physics that is not aligned with the
The GAMBIT Universal Model Machine: from Lagrangians to likelihoods
We introduce the Universal Model Machine (), a tool for automatically generating code for the global fitting software framework , based on Lagrangian-level inputs. accepts models written symbolically
Theory requirements for SM Higgs and EW precision physics at the FCC-ee
High-precision experimental measurements of the properties of the Higgs boson at $$\sim 125$$ ∼ 125  GeV as well as electroweak precision observables such as the W-boson mass or the effective
Parallel adaptive Monte Carlo integration with the event generator WHIZARD
We describe a new parallel approach to the evaluation of phase space for Monte-Carlo event generation, implemented within the framework of the Whizard package. The program realizes a twofold


Distinguishing Little Higgs product and simple group models at the CERN LHC and ILC
We propose a means to discriminate between the two basic variants of Little Higgs models, the Product Group and Simple Group models, at the next generation of colliders. It relies on a special

We apply the iterative numerical algorithm ALPHA, which automatically generates the N-point Green functions (as recently suggested \cite{alpha}) to the computation of the production rate of four
CalcHEP 2.3: MSSM, structure functions, event generation, batchs, and generation of matrix elements for other packages
CalcHEP is a package for computation of Feynman diagrams and integration over multi-particle phase space. The main idea prescribed into CalcHEP is to make available passing on from Lagrangians to the
The Snowmass Points and Slopes: benchmarks for SUSY searches
Abstract. The ”Snowmass Points and Slopes” (SPS) are a set of benchmark points and parameter lines in the MSSM parameter space corresponding to different scenarios in the search for Supersymmetry at

Supersymmetry simulations with off-shell effects for the CERN LHC and an ILC
At the LHC and at an ILC, serious studies of new physics benefit from a proper simulation of signals and backgrounds. Using supersymmetric sbottom pair production as an example, we show how

We analyze the spectrum and properties of a highly deconstructed Higgsless model with only three sites. Such a model contains sufficient complexity to incorporate interesting physics issues related

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
Determination of new electroweak parameters at the ILC – sensitivity to new physics
We present a study of the sensitivity of the International Linear Collider (ILC) to electroweak parameters in the absence of a light Higgs boson. In particular, we consider those parameters that have
