An event generator for same-sign W-boson scattering at the LHC including electroweak corrections


Chiesa, Mauro; Denner, Ansgar; Lang, Jean-Nicolas; Pellen, Mathieu (2019). An event generator for same-sign W-boson scattering at the LHC including electroweak corrections. European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields, 79(9):788.

Abstract

In this article we present an event generator based on the Monte Carlo program Powheg in combination with the matrix-element generator Recola. We apply it to compute NLO electroweak corrections to same-sign W-boson scattering, which have been shown to be large at the LHC. The event generator allows for the generation of unweighted events including the effect of the NLO electroweak corrections matched to a QED parton shower and interfaced to a QCD parton shower. In view of the expected experimental precision of future measurements, the use of such a tool will be indispensable.
