Current revision

The idea is to perform a systematic study and comparison of the ttbar plus jets process, using the available codes, in particular

  • ttbar+jet NLO (Dittmaier, Uwer, Weinzierl)
  • MC@NLO
  • POWHEG
  • ALPGEN
  • MADGRAPH
  • PYTHIA
  • Note also interest from MPI subgroup: ttbar + 2jets from double parton interactions as background to b' searches, cf., studies with PYTHIA 8 carried out and reported on by P. Bartalini at Les Houches.

We plan to systematically compare the codes using relevant distributions, understand and learn from observed differences.

Interested people so far: Joanna Weng, Frank-Peter Schilling (main responsible), Peter Uwer, Roberto Chierici, S. Hoeche, Stephen Mrenna, P. Skands, P. Bartalini (MPI: ttbar+2jets).
