We present the latest developments of the MadGraph/MadEvent Monte Carlo event generator and several applications to hadron collider physics. In the current version events at the parton, hadron and detector level can be generated directly from a web interface, for arbitrary processes in the Standard Model and in several physics scenarios beyond it (HEFT, MSSM, 2HDM). The most important additions are: a new framework for implementing user-defined new physics models; a standalone running mode for… 

WHIZARD—simulating multi-particle processes at LHC and ILC

We describe the universal Monte-Carlo (parton-level) event generator WHIZARD (http://whizard.event-generator.org), version 2. The program automatically computes complete tree-level matrix elements,

Interfacing GoSam with Monte Carlo Event Generators

In this talk the most recent results obtained by interfacing GoSam with external Monte Carlo event generators are presented and summarized. In the last year the automatic one-loop amplitude generator

MadGraph 5: going beyond

TLDR
The ideas and the most important developments of the code are described and the capabilities of the MadGraph matrix element generator are illustrated through a few simple phenomenological examples.

Angles and Daemons: Spin Correlations at the LHC

The Large Hadron Collider has recently started collecting data, opening a new energy regime. This will allow us to probe further than ever before many of the current mysteries of the field. New

Topics on Hadron Collider Physics

In this dissertation we present four techniques that could be used at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to improve the e ciency with which collected data is utilized, and to help detect signals of

Monte Carlo simulations of hard QCD radiation

Monte Carlo event generators, such as Herwig++, provide a full simulation of events at collider experiments. They give a fully exclusive description of hadronic final states and are therefore crucial

MADGRAPH/MADEVENT - THE NEW WEB GENERATION

TLDR
MadGraph/MadEvent is a fully automatized tool for generation of cross sections and unweighted events for processes, both in the Standard Model and for several models of new physics.

MadEvent: Automatic event generation with MadGraph

TLDR
A new multi-channel integration method is presented and its implementation in the multi-purpose event generator MadEvent, which is based on MadGraph, which allows the user to calculate cross sections and produce unweighted events in a standard output format.

Les houches physics at TeV colliders 2005, standard model and Higgs working group: Summary report

This Report summarises the activities of the "SM and Higgs" working group for the Workshop "Physics at TeV Colliders", Les Houches, France, 2-20 May, 2005. On the one hand, we performed a variety of

Matching NLO QCD and parton showers in heavy flavour production

We apply the MC@NLO approach to the process of heavy flavour hadroproduction. MC@NLO is a method for matching next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD calculations and parton shower Monte Carlo (MC)

A Positive-Weight Next-to-Leading-Order Monte Carlo for Z Pair Hadroproduction

We present a first application of a previously published method for the computation of QCD processes that is accurate at next-to-leading order, and that can be interfaced consistently to standard

Production of Supersymmetric Particles at High-energy Colliders

The production and decay of supersymmetric particles is presented in this thesis. The search for light mixing top squarks and neutralinos/charginos will be a major task at the upgraded Tevatron and

Matching Matrix Elements and Parton Showers with HERWIG and PYTHIA

We report on our exploration of matching matrix element calculations with the parton-shower models contained in the event generators HERWIG and PYTHIA. We describe results for e + e i collisions and
