[http://www.slac.stanford.edu/spires/find/hep/www?eprint=arXiv:0903.3918 Effect of ME corrections] on low pT end of the Z pT distribution compared for PYTHIA, HERWIG, Sherpa, Alpgen. Some points:
+
-
* Affect n=1 ME corrections, Pythia, Herwig, Alpgen+Herwig and Sherpa all pretty much agree. For Algen+Pythia there is a significant difference at low pT. Means that PYTHIA tune would be different for usage with & without Alpgen.

How would low x logs affect tunes?
+
-
 
+
-
Expect extra events at with high rapidity jets due to:
+
-
* large colour singlet contribution. This will have a component with rapidity gaps, and a component where these gaps have been destroyed by UE.
+
-
* large colour octet contribution enhanced by low x logs (Jeppes's calculations).
+
-
Presumably these effects will distort min bias tunes etc, since this physics is not necessarily in the MC. The first effect actually can be modelled by HERWIG+JIMMY, to some extent at least.

* Are there ways of revamping pre-matched tunes?
