In H→WW, several event generators are used to optimize the analysis and estimate the expected yields of signal and backgrounds, as well as their associated systematic uncertainties.We are interested in Sherpa MC event generator for Higgs+jets simulation and WW+jets simulation because of its capability to produce higher jet multiplicities at NLO accuracy. This will help us to understand if with these samples the theoretical uncertainties associated with the migration among jet bins can be reduced as this is one of the major uncertainties in H→WW analyses , where events are categorized in jet multiplicity bins.
