Aim of the project

We study QCD radiation in SUSY events, such as gluino-gluino, stop-stop, stop-gluino processes. We use the MLM matching and verify/improve the results of Tilman, David and Peter, and in particular we investigate whether the extra hard jets in SUSY events are well described by the parton-shower, as it is usually claimed, or if matching gives a better description. We also study the matching in heavy tops events as a reference and the SM background needed in these kind of analysis. The SM samples will be used also for other applications.

Tools

Work

We have identified two phases:

  1. MC samples generation and validation
  2. Physics results and paper writeup

MC samples generation and validation

The strategy here is to first generate samples at the after-showering level to perform the validation. Once all samples are validated, we'll do the full Pythia-PGS simulation.

Generation
Standard Model Samples (Simon)

To get a faster generation we:

  • define a new model (smzerobmass), where the bmass is set to "Zero" in the particles.dat. This optimizes the flavor sum
  • We don't decay the Z, W+,W-, and tops. We'll let these particles be decayed by Pythia. In doing this we loose spin correlations, which, however are irrelevant for the multi-jet samples for this type of studies.
  • Not to generate the single particle samples for Z and W. These have a negligible impact on the multi-jet

configurations we are interested in.

  • In Pythia, we consider only decays of W into leptons (e, mu and tau) and also into neutrinos for Z.

Physics results and paper writeup

Plots for the paper

Explanation of notation:

  • 4x2 runs means 4 unmatched, 4 matched runs with the different shower params
  • 4 params means with the 4 different shower params
  • decay jet #s means number of jets from decays
  • jet numbers means plot of number of jets above (say) 50 GeV in the events
