Improving parton showers

Particle Physics Theory seminar

Improving parton showers

  • Event time: 2:00pm until 3:00pm
  • Event date: 8th December 2021
  • Speaker: Jeff Forshaw (University of Manchester)
  • Location: Higgs Centre Seminar Room, Room 4305,

Event details

Existing general purpose Monte Carlo event generators are unable to account for colour interference effects beyond those (leading-colour) effects that can be captured in a classical branching algorithm. I will discuss our attempts to develop a new amplitude-evolution framework that can systematically include sub-leading colour effects. I will also discuss some ways in which existing event generators can be improved.

About Particle Physics Theory seminars

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..
