HiggsTools Journal Club IX: Why do experimentalists love Multi-jet merging so much?
Abstract: Multi-jet merging (and more generally matching and merging) techniques, are broadly used by the experimental community as a tool for “inclusion of higher orders”. This has, many times now, led to the question posed above. The general idea of this talk is to review in a very basic way, side-by-side, both the “theoretically sound way of including higher orders” and the multi-jet merging techniques. The objective then is to provide with a common ground for both theorist and experimentalists to understand each other reasons, and have a discussion on that!
