We discuss the theoretical bases that underpin the automation of the computations of tree-level and next-to-leading order cross sections, of their matching to parton shower simulations, and of the merging of matched samples that differ by light-parton multiplicities. We present a computer program, MadGraph5 aMC@NLO, capable of handling all these computations – parton-level fixed order, shower-matched, merged – in a unified framework whose defining features are flexibility, high level of… CONTINUE READING
