In addition to fixed-order matrix element calculations, some terms of the QCD perturbative prediction can be resummed to all orders in the framework of the so-called leading-log QCD. Experimental observables sensitive to the predictions from this ansatz are for example the momentum spectra of the final state particles (both inclusive and separated according to particle type), final state particle multiplicities, subjet multiplicities or the production of hard isolated photons. All experimental results show that the basic features of the parton shower process are consistent with the QCD expectation.
