"Frontiers of parton-shower accuracy"

Presented by Dr. Melissa van Beekveld, Nikhef

Thursday, October 12, 2023, 11:00 am — Bldg. 510, room 2-160

Abstract: While parton showers are used ubiquitously in Monte-Carlo simulations of particle collisions, their theoretical accuracy has been the subject of extensive discussion in the last few years. The PanScales project aims to design parton showers that attain higher accuracy than the standard tools used at present. In this talk, I will review the foundational principles behind our parton showers, and unveil first results from parton showers accurate at next-to-leading logarithmic level for e+e- colliders, deep inelastic scattering, and colour-singlet production in hadron-hadron collisions.
