Welcome the first mini-workshop on High Accuracy Resummation and Parton Showers (HARPS meeting)!
The idea behind this meeting is to have a two-day focused workshop on all-order methods in QCD and their application to LHC phenomenology. There will be very few talks and plenty of time for discussion and collaborative work. Topics include:
a) comparisons between parton showers and analytic resummation
b) automated resummation
c) colour evolution
d) jet substructure
e) strong coupling determination with grooming
The meeting is co-hosted by the Physics Department, University of Genova, as part of Departments of Excellence program, and by the Genoa Unit of INFN. The meeting will take place in room A603, Dipartimento di Fisica, Via Dodecaneso 33, 16146 Genova.
How to get to the department:
-from Genova airport: the best way is to get a taxi to the department. Alternatively, you can take the airport bus (volabus) to Brignole train station.
-from Brignole train station you can hop on any bus numbered 17, 17/, 18, 45, 85, 86, 87. Their stops near the department are indicated in the attached map. Once you get off, you have to walk a little bit as the department is on the opposite side of a small hill. Bus tickets are 1.50 euros and you should buy them in advance at one of the kiosks in the square opposite the train station.
