The PanScales quest for accurate parton showers (Gregory Soyez, Saclay/CERN)

Aprile 13, 2023@2:00 pm–3:00 pm
Aula 601 e zoom

Seminario di Fenomenologia –
General-purpose Monte Carlo event generators are omnipresent in collider physics. As an introduction, I will discuss the various building blocks entering such tools. The talk will focus on the core part, the so-called parton-shower algorithm. I will what it is meant to achieve, i.e. connections with all-order calculations in perturbative QCD, and how it does it in practice, i.e. (usually) as a dipole shower. The main part of the talk will, describe the effort of the PanScales collaboration in order to improve the current state-of-the-art.
