Description

We present a parton shower based on Transverse Momentum Dependent (TMD)
parton distributions obtained with the Parton Branching method. We investigate
how well the TMD parton shower reproduces the TMD parton distributions.
Applications of the TMD parton shower to LHC processes will be presented.
