MadGolem and MC@NLO: further on the road of automation

Presented by Dr. David LOPEZ-VAL on 21 Jul 2014 from 15:10 to 15:30
Type: Precision SUSY
Session: Precision SUSY
Track: Precision SUSY


After the successful completion of Run I at the LHC, experimental searches are intensively confronting Supersymmetry to data. In this context, a major call for phenomenologists is to improve, extend and combine the different tools automating beyond-the-standard Model (BSM) NLO calculations, which have been developped over the past years. In this talk we will present one example of the work in this direction. We will show the recent progress in linking the MadGolem and MC@NLO frameworks, setting sights at an automated NLO event generator for generic new physics processes. In the first part of the talk we will discuss the strategies by which we automate the calculation of renormalized one-loop amplitudes, the subtraction of infrared and on-shell divergences, and the interface to the parton shower. In the second part of the talk we will illustrate how the combined MadGolem-MC@NLO toolkit performs in practice, applying it to exemplary processes relevant for SUSY searches at the LHC.
