Without proper control of numerical and methodological errors in theoretical predictions at the per mille level it is not possible to study the effect of input parameters in current hadron-collider measurements at the required precision. We present a new version of the parton-level code MCFM that achieves this requirement through its highly-parallelized nature, significant performance improvements and new features. An automatic differential cutoff extrapolation is introduced to assess the… CONTINUE READING
