# PYTHIA 6.2: Physics and manual

@article{Sjostrand2001PYTHIA6P, title={PYTHIA 6.2: Physics and manual}, author={Torbjorn Sjostrand and Leif Lonnblad and Stephen Mrenna}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology}, year={2001} }

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 accurate as possible a representation of event properties in a wide range of reactions, with emphasis on those where strong interactions play a role, directly or indirectly, and therefore multihadronic final states are produced. The physics is then not understood well enough to give an exact…

Q-PYTHIA: a medium-modified implementation of final state radiation

- Physics
- 2009

We present a Monte Carlo implementation, within PYTHIA, of medium-induced gluon radiation in the final state branching process. Medium effects are introduced through an additive term in the splitting…

Monte Carlo simulations of hard QCD radiation

- Physics
- 2009

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…

Streamlining resummed QCD calculations using Monte Carlo integration

- Physics
- 2015

A bstractSome of the most arduous and error-prone aspects of precision resummed calculations are related to the partonic hard process, having nothing to do with the resummation. In particular,…
