Reweighting QCD matrix-element and parton-shower calculations


Bothmann, Enrico; Schönherr, Marek; Schumann, Steffen (2016). Reweighting QCD matrix-element and parton-shower calculations. European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields, 76(11):590.

Abstract

We present the implementation and validation of the techniques used to efficiently evaluate parametric and perturbative theoretical uncertainties in matrix-element plus parton-shower simulations within the Sherpa event-generator framework. By tracing the full αsαs and PDF dependences, including the parton-shower component, as well as the fixed-order scale uncertainties, we compute variational event weights on-the-fly, thereby greatly reducing the computational costs to obtain theoretical-uncertainty estimates.
