QCD and event simulation for the LHC (Pavia 2015)
6h course on QCD, MC's and 4h tutorial on MadGraph5_aMCatNLO by Fabio Maltoni and Marco Zaro
Lectures
The PDF of the lectures be found here:
QCD Redux: Three lectures on QCD basics for hadron collider physics
MC1: From Lagrangians to Fixed order calculations
Tutorials
4h of tutorials on MG5_aMC spanning from LO to NLO calculations.
We provide here complimentary material to the lectures that can used by students to verify their understanding of the basic concepts.
Monte Carlo integration
A short introduction to the techniques of Monte Carlo integration. Exercises proposed during lecture are collected in this Mathematica Notebook: mc101.nb.
LHC Phenomenology
- SM Higgs discovery at the LHC: Three important channels
- Simple Black Boxes: New gauge bosons
A collection of test, exercises, and web applications on pQCD can be found in QCD_Pavia2015.pdf.
Going NLO
- pp>H at LO (1-loop): details of the calculation (Mathematica Notebook) HiggsGG-LO-mtfinite.nb
- pp>H at NLO: details of the calculation (Mathematica Notebook) higgsGG-NLO.nb
- pp>H at NLO: cross section evaluation for the LHC (Mathematica Notebook+PDF libraries to be compiled) phenHiggs.tar.gz.
A summary of the results can be found in Higgs.pdf.
