HET Seminar

"Towards NLO parton showers"

Presented by Stefan Prestel, Fermilab

Wednesday, May 23, 2018, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Parton showers aim to consistently model the evolution of the soft and collinear structure of QCD. As such, they are important pieces of event generator software. Parton shower methods have, since their inception, been limited to lowest order precision. For a consistent NLO event generator framework, and to reduce the uncertainties inherent in a lowest-order approach, it is important to push parton showers beyond lowest order precision. In this talk, I will discuss recent advances within the Dire parton shower (of Pythia and Sherpa) to construct a consistent NLO parton shower.
