QCD and Monte Carlo techniques


In this course the basics of Monte Carlo techniques and the theory of strong interactions, Quantum Chromodynamics, are covered. We will discuss the QCD evolution equations and the application to processes at the LHC, in particular the transverse momentum spectrum of Z and Higgs bosons.

In the exercises we will apply basic Monte Carlo techniques for integration and finally construct the parton evolution to calculate the transverse momentum distribution of Z and Higgs bosons.

Disclaimer: this course will not discuss the application of general Monte Carlo event generators.

The Research Training Group (RTG)  is carried out jointly by the Institute for Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology, Physics Institute III A and Physics Institute I B. The RTG is centred around LHC research. It builds on the particular strengths of the scientific groups at the RWTH Aachen University and the tradition of close collaboration between theory and experiment. The experimental groups at RWTH are part of the CMS collaboration. 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.
