VBFNLO: A parton level Monte Carlo for processes with electroweak bosons


Arnold, K; Bähr, M; Bozzi, G; Campanario, F; Englert, C; Figy, T; Greiner, N; Hackstein, C; Hankele, V; Jäger, B; Klämke, G; Kubocz, M; Oleari, C; Plätzer, S; Prestel, S; Worek, M; Zeppenfeld, D (2009). VBFNLO: A parton level Monte Carlo for processes with electroweak bosons. Computer Physics Communications, 180(9):1661-1670.

Abstract

Vbfnlo is a fully flexible parton level Monte Carlo program for the simulation of vector boson fusion, double and triple vector boson production in hadronic collisions at next-to-leading order in the strong coupling constant. Vbfnlo includes Higgs and vector boson decays with full spin correlations and all off-shell effects. In addition, Vbfnlo implements View the MathML source-even and View the MathML source-odd Higgs boson via gluon fusion, associated with two jets, at the leading-order one-loop level with the full top- and bottom-quark mass dependence in a generic two-Higgs-doublet model.

A variety of effects arising from beyond the Standard Model physics are implemented for selected processes. This includes anomalous couplings of Higgs and vector bosons and a Warped Higgsless extra dimension model. The program offers the possibility to generate Les Houches Accord event files for all processes available at leading order.
