The tutorial will be divided in two sections. After a brief introduction I will show how to use ThePEG/Pythia7, describing how to make a simple run with simple analysis. I will also show how to add a simple module to the framework.
In the second part I will describe how to write a new physics module, using the specific case of a matrix element as an example.
Both parts will probably be done before lunch, leaving the afternoon session for further discussions.
If you want to follow the tutorial hands-on with your laptop you should in advance download and install the latest version of ThePEG and Pythia7 from their respective web sites:
ThePEG and Pythia7.
Also, if you missed my talk yesterday, you probably should take a look at the transparencies.
Short introduction to the package:
- Sherpa's event generation framework
- input options
- how to have fun with new particles and models
- connection of MEs to the shower
- some outlook concerning hadronization
