Quantum Chromodynamics




Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a brief introduction to the modelling of exclusive final states from high-energy collisions between elementary particles. It starts with the matrix element models for the initial hard scale and then explains the different ways to treat perturbative higher orders in the parton shower approach, before finally addressing the formation of the final state hadrons. The widely used JETSET, HERWIG, and ARIADNE generators are used as prototypes for illustrating the techniques used to connect QCD with experimental observables.

Keywords:   Monte Carlo Models, Markov chain, matrix element models, parton shower model, Sudakov form factor, JETSET, HERWIG, ARIADNE, colour dipole
