SiD Simulation&Analysis for ILC Snowmass Physics LoIs

  title={SiD Simulation\&Analysis for ILC Snowmass Physics LoIs},
  author={C. Potter},
The correct modeling of e+e− collision events at the International Linear Collider (ILC), as well as the response of a collider detector like the Silicon Detector (SiD), is crucial to evaluating the expected sensitivity to key properties of the Higgs boson. In this document we describe the event generation and detector simulation in use for the SiD Letters of Interest submitted for the 2021 Snowmass community planning exercise.

H$\rightarrow$invisible at the ILC with SiD
The Standard Model (SM) predicts a branching ratio of the Higgs boson decaying to invisible particles of O(0.001), though current measurements have only set upper limits on this value. The smallExpand

A brief introduction to PYTHIA 8.1
PYTHIA 8 represents a complete rewrite in C++, and does not yet in every respect replace the old code, but does contain some new physics aspects that should make it an attractive option especially for LHC physics studies. Expand
PYTHIA 6.2: Physics and manual
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 asExpand
