Automatic one-loop calculations with Sherpa+OpenLoops


Cascioli, F; Höche, S; Krauss, F; Maierhöfer, P; Pozzorini, S; Siegert, F (2014). Automatic one-loop calculations with Sherpa+OpenLoops. Journal of Physics : Conference Series, 523:012058.

Abstract

We report on the OpenLoops generator for one-loop matrix elements and its application to four-lepton production in association with up to one jet. The open loops algorithm uses a numerical recursion to construct the numerator of one-loop Feynman diagrams as functions of the loop momentum. In combination with tensor integrals this results in a highly efficient and numerically stable matrix element generator. In order to obtain a fully automated setup for the simulation of next-to-leading order scattering processes we interfaced OpenLoops to the Sherpa Monte Carlo event generator.
