Description

QCD parton showers can be improved by including different kinds of corrections. Among these are subleading color corrections, the modeling of QED emissions, and matrix element corrections. We implement a fixed color mode in the DIRE parton shower and combine it with QED shower emissions and mixed QCD-QED matrix element corrections to use these improvements simultaneously and compare their respective effects.
