Description

The merging of matrix elements and parton showers is an established calculational tool for the description of multi-jet final states at hadron colliders. These methods have recently been promoted to next-to-leading order accuracy in the description of hard well separated jets. This talk will introduce such a method and discuss its application to phenomenologically relevant signal and background processes. The systematic assessment of its theoretical uncertainty will be a prime focus.
