Description

We present the recent implementation of CKKW-L merging inside Pythia8, and comment on the treatment of multiparton interactions in the context of matrix element merging. Since multiple interactions inside Pythia8 are fully interleaved with space- and time-like showers, care has to be taken when allowing for MPI. Further, we will discuss the uncertainties of the implementation.
