We study the effects of gluon radiation in top pair production and their decays for e+e- annihilation at the ILC. To achieve this we apply the POWHEG method and interface our results to the Monte Carlo event generator Herwig++. We consider a center-of-mass energy of 500GeV and compare decay correlations and bottom quark distributions before hadronization.

Scrutinizing the Top Quark at Lepton Colliders with Higher Orders : From Fixed Order to Resummation and Matching
In this thesis, we present detailed studies of top-pair production with (tt̄H) and without association of a Higgs boson (tt̄) in e + e − collisions. These processes are of utmost interest for the top

Matching NLO QCD computations with Parton Shower simulations: the POWHEG method
The aim of this work is to describe in detail the POWHEG method, first suggested by one of the authors, for interfacing parton-shower generators with NLO QCD computations. We describe the method in
