HET Seminar

"Taming the complex dynamics of scattering events"

Presented by Dr. Pier Francesco Monni, CERN

Thursday, June 23, 2022, 11:00 am — Videoconference / Virtual Event (see link below)

The pioneering investigation of the fundamental laws of nature at the Large Hadron Collider builds upon the interpretation of complex scattering events. Our ability to identify small signals of elusive new phenomena therefore depends on accurate theoretical simulations which describe the evolution of the system from the few particles produced in the high-energy scattering to the tens or hundreds of low-energy particles observed in the experimental detectors. In this talk, I will discuss the main theoretical technology behind this endeavour, that of event generators. I will present a number of recent theoretical innovations that will shape the creation of a new generation of tools, essential to achieve the outstanding accuracy demanded by collider experiments.
