DESCRIPTION:In this course the basics of Monte Carlo techniques and the th
eory of strong interactions\, Quantum Chromodynamics\, are covered. We wil
l discuss the QCD evolution equations and the application to processes at
the LHC\, in particular the transverse momentum spectrum of Z and Higgs bo
sons.\n\nIn the exercises we will apply basic Monte Carlo techniques for i
ntegration and finally construct the parton evolution to calculate the tra
nsverse momentum distribution of Z and Higgs bosons.\n\nDisclaimer: this c
ourse will not discuss the application of general Monte Carlo event genera
tors.\n\nThe Research Training Group (RTG) is carried out jointly by the
Institute for Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology\, Physics Instit
ute III A and Physics Institute I B. The RTG is centred around LHC researc
h. It builds on the particular strengths of the scientific groups at the R
WTH Aachen University and the tradition of close collaboration between the
ory and experiment. The experimental groups at RWTH are part of the CMS co
llaboration. The theoretical group at RWTH covers a broad range of topics
from precision calculations in quantum chromodynamics to the phenomenology
of supersymmetry and dark matter.\n\n \nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/328
