High multiplicity QCD at Next-to-leading order

Particle Physics Theory seminar

High multiplicity QCD at Next-to-leading order

  • Event time: 2:00pm
  • Event date: 5th February 2014
  • Speaker: Simon Badger (Formerly School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Edinburgh)
  • Location: Higgs Centre Seminar Room,

Event details

I will discuss recent developments of automated numerical techniques for the evaluation of multi-leg one-loop matrix elements using on-shell methods. I will then discuss applications to five jet production and di-photon plus three jets at the LHC computed using the C++ library NJET interfaced to the Sherpa Monte-Carlo.

Event resources

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
