Frontiers of parton-shower accuracy

Melissa van Beekveld, Oxford

Weekly Theory Seminar.


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 colour-singlet production in hadron-hadron collisions.

(The slides will be available here)
