Monte Carlo Simulations of High Energy Collisions

Group members: Bryan Webber, Andreas Papaefstathiou

Monte Carlo techniques for summing enhanced terms to all orders in perturbation theory have been developed and incorporated, together with models of hadron formation, in simulation programs for hard collisions at high energies. Predictions are compared with data from LEP, HERA and Tevatron high energy experiments. New processes such as supersymmetric particle and black hole production are included in the programs in order to predict the features of such processes at the LHC.

Programs developed by our group for this research include
