(Accurate simulation) tools for colliders at TASI 2013
3 lectures MC's developments for the LHC by Fabio Maltoni and 3 tutorials on FeynRules/MadGraph by Celine Degrande and Olivier Mattelaer.
Lectures
The PDF of the lectures be found here:
MC1: From Lagrangians to Fixed order calculations
Tests and exercises
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_TASI2013.pdf.
