81\section{Introduction}
82%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
83
84Many models for physics beyond the Standard Model, notably
85Supersymmetry, Little Higgs models, many models for extra dimensions
86and many versions of technicolor models, contain new strongly
87interacting particles with masses below or near the TeV scale. Such
88particles, if they exist, will be copiously produced at the LHC, and
89will be the first and most important sign of new physics. By analyzing
90the production and decay of these particles, we might already in the
91first few years of the LHC be able to determine many properties of the
92new physics present in nature, including parts of the particle
93spectrum, spin structure and the existance of new stable particles.
94
95One additional difficulty in the simulation of production of heavy
96particles at hadron colliders is the presence of additional QCD
97radiation. This radiation, which is even more important in the
98production of strongly interacting particles than for color neutral
99particles, affects the event kinematics by giving transverse boosts to
100the produced particle system. It also produces additional jets besides
101the jets originating from the decay of the heavy particles.
102
103Additional jet production has traditionally been simulated using
104parton shower Monte Carlo programs such as \pythia\ and \herwig, which
105describe parton radiation as successive parton emissions using the
106soft and collinear limit. This description is formally correct only in
107the limit of soft and collinear emissions, but has been shown to give
108a good description of much data also relatively far away from this
109limit. However, for the production of hard and widely separated extra
110jets, this description breaks down due to the lack of subleading terms
111and interference. For that case, it is necessary to use the full
112matrix element for the heavy particle production plus additional
113jets.
114
115The matrix element description diverges
116as jets become soft or collinear, while the parton shower description
117breaks down when jets become hard and widely separated. In order to
118describe both these areas in phase space, these two desriptions must
119be combined, without double counting between different jet
120multiplicities. An additional requirement is that this procedure gives
121smooth distributions, and interpolates between the parton shower
122description in the soft and collinear limits and the matrix element
123description in the limit of hard and widely separated jets. Several
124such procedures have been produced, including the CKKW, L\"onnblad and
125Mangano schemes. These different procedures seem to all give
126consistent results (see comparison).
127
128For Standard Model processes, in particular the production of
129weak vector bosons and top quark pairs plus additional jets, such
130matching has been used extensively since several years.
131
132In this paper we will argue that there are many situations in which it
133is necessary to use jet matching also for the production of new heavy
134particles, in order to get a sufficiently precise description. We will
135study the impact of additional jet radiation on the kinematical
136distributions traditionally used to determine mass scales of the new
137physics, as well as extract the ...
