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… 
An introduction to PYTHIA 8.2
Herwig++ physics and manual
AbstractIn this paper we describe $\mathsf{Herwig++}$ version 2.2, a general-purpose Monte Carlo event generator for the simulation of hard lepton-lepton and hadron-hadron collisions. A number of
Underlying Event Studies at RHIC
By studying p-p collisions we hope to improve our understanding of the fundamental constituents of matter and how they form into colorless objects. Measurements of the inclusive jet cross-sections
Status of Monte-Carlo Event Generators
Recent progress on general-purpose Monte-Carlo event generators is reviewed with emphasis on the simulation of hard QCD processes and subsequent parton cascades. Describing full final states of
Event generation with SHERPA 1.1
In this paper the current release of the Monte Carlo event generator Sherpa, version 1.1, is presented. Sherpa is a general-purpose tool for the simulation of particle collisions at high-energy
Q-PYTHIA: a medium-modified implementation of final state radiation
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
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
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,


On high energy leptoproduction
The particle distributions and the event structures in high energy leptoproduction are considered in a model where perturbative QCD is used to compute the cross sections to order αs and the Lund jet
Status of Fragmentation Models
Phenomenological models of multiparticle production have become increasingly important for the interpretation of experimental datas in high energy physics. The evolution of these models fills a gap
Production and hadronization of heavy quarks
Abstract. Heavy long-lived quarks, i.e. charm and bottom, are frequently studied both as tests of QCD and as probes for other physics aspects within and beyond the standard model. The long lifetime
Phase space veto method for next-to-leading order event generators in hadronic collisions
A method for organizing next-to-leading order QCD calculations using a veto which enforces the cancellations between virtual and real emission diagrams is applied to hadronic collisions. The method
