Neural network-based approach to phase space integration

A Neural Network algorithm optimized to perform Monte Carlo methods to integrate and sample probability distributions on multi-dimensional phase spaces, including situations with non-trivial features such as sharp resonances and soft/collinear enhancements.

Exploring phase space with Neural Importance Sampling

An importance sampling technique capable of overcoming typical deficiencies of existing approaches by incorporating neural networks is proposed, which guarantees full phase space coverage and the exact reproduction of the desired target distribution, in this case given by the squared transition matrix element.

Event generation with normalizing flows

A novel integrator based on normalizing flows which can be used to improve the unweighting efficiency of Monte-Carlo event generators for collider physics simulations and generates the correct result even if the underlying neural networks are not optimally trained.

Direct numerical evaluation of multi-loop integrals without contour deformation

We propose a method for computing numerically integrals defined via $$i \epsilon $$ i ϵ deformations acting on single-pole singularities. We achieve this without an explicit analytic contour

Quantum chromodynamics : simulation in Monte Carlo event generators

This thesis contains the work of two recent developments in the Herwig general purpose event generator. Firstly, the results from an new implementation of the KrkNLO method in the Herwig event

45 Computing for Perturbative QCD

One of the main challenges facing the particle-physics community to date is the interpretation of LHC measurements on the basis of accurate and robust theoretical predictions. The discovery of a

A ug 2 00 0 Generating QCD-antennas

An extension of the SARGE-algorithm of [9] is introduced, which includes the incoming momenta in the kinematical pole structure of the density with which the momenta are generated. The algorithm is

Automating the P OWHEG method in S HERPA

A new implementation of the POWHEG method [1] into the Monte-Carlo event generator SHERPA [2] is presented, focusing on processes with a simple colour structure. Results for a variety of processes,

Monte Carlo simulations for BSM physics and precision Higgs physics at the LHC

Monte Carlo event generators are indispensable tools for the interpretation of data taken at particle collider experiments like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most powerful particle collider

Numerical integration of loop integrals through local cancellation of threshold singularities

Abstract We propose a new approach that allows for the separate numerical calculation of the real and imaginary parts of finite loop integrals. We find that at one-loop the real part is given by the
