Links ūüĒó

I am a strong ad­vo­cate of free and open-­source soft­ware (FOS­S), as it ben­e­fits the whole com­mu­ni­ty. Here is a list of links to soft­ware that I at some point used or is re­lated to my work.

Monte Carlo codes

  • MCFM Par¬≠ton level Monte Carlo with many processes at NLO and at NNLO, as well as W and Z at N3¬≠LO. In¬≠cludes qT and jet-veto re¬≠sum¬≠ma¬≠tion.

  • MA¬≠TRIX Par¬≠ton level Monte Carlo with many processes at NNLO and an in¬≠ter¬≠face to RadISH qT- and jet-veto re¬≠sum¬≠ma¬≠tion.

  • CuTe DY,Z,W,H pro¬≠duc¬≠tion at NNLO with N3LO re¬≠sum¬≠ma¬≠tion at small pT

  • Pe¬≠TeR Pho¬≠ton,Z,W,H pro¬≠duc¬≠tion at NNLO with thresh¬≠old re¬≠sum¬≠ma¬≠tion at large pT

  • SusHi Higgs pro¬≠duc¬≠tion up to N3LO in the HTL with top-quark mass ef¬≠fects, also in BSM mod¬≠els

  • ggHiggs Higgs pro¬≠duc¬≠tion up to N3LO in the HTL with smal¬≠l-x re¬≠sum¬≠ma¬≠tion and top-quark mass ef¬≠fects

  • DY¬≠Turbo Up¬≠graded ver¬≠sion of DYNNLO/DYres with high¬≠er-order re¬≠sum¬≠ma¬≠tion.

  • DYNNLO/DYres Monte Carlo codes for DY pro¬≠duc¬≠tion at NNLO and re¬≠sum¬≠ma¬≠tion at NNLL

  • Res¬≠Bos Small pT re¬≠sum¬≠ma¬≠tion for W,Z,ő≥,H,ő≥ő≥,ZZ + jet processes at NLO.

  • HEJ High En¬≠ergy Jets: Monte Carlo style re¬≠sum¬≠ma¬≠tion for large in¬≠vari¬≠ant masses be¬≠tween jets in mul¬≠ti¬≠jet processes and H+¬≠jets, W+¬≠jets.

  • vh@nnlo VH pro¬≠duc¬≠tion at NN¬≠LO.

  • vbfnlo Code for vec¬≠tor bo¬≠son fu¬≠sion processes at NLO.

Top Quark spe­cific codes
  • ZTOP Sin¬≠gle top pro¬≠duc¬≠tion at NLO in the sta¬≠ble top ap¬≠prox¬≠i¬≠ma¬≠tion.
  • TOPAZ Com¬≠putes var¬≠i¬≠ous top-quark processes at NLO in the nar¬≠row-width ap¬≠prox¬≠i¬≠ma¬≠tion. Var¬≠i¬≠ous am¬≠pli¬≠tudes and rou¬≠tines are from MCFM

Event Gen­er­a­tors

  • Sherpa Gen¬≠eral pur¬≠pose event gen¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tor with an in¬≠ter¬≠face to Pythia.
Par­ton shower and be­yond
Other HEP pre­dic­tions


  • LHAPDF Frame¬≠work for PDF sets and their evo¬≠lu¬≠tion.
  • Chap¬≠lin Nu¬≠mer¬≠i¬≠cal eval¬≠u¬≠a¬≠tion of Har¬≠monic poly¬≠log¬≠a¬≠rithms up to weight four with com¬≠plex ar¬≠gu¬≠ments.
  • PDF4LHC and MetaPDF com¬≠bi¬≠na¬≠tion of dif¬≠fer¬≠ent PDF sets
  • VVamp Two-loop he¬≠lic¬≠ity am¬≠pli¬≠tudes for VV pro¬≠duc¬≠tion with de¬≠cays.

Tools for loop cal­cu­la­tions

  • Re¬≠duze (IBP) re¬≠duc¬≠tion of loop in¬≠te¬≠grals. Test¬≠ed.
  • Kira (IBP) re¬≠duc¬≠tion of loop in¬≠te¬≠grals. Test¬≠ed, same in¬≠put file for¬≠mat as Re¬≠duze. Faster than Re¬≠duze (2.2) and has nicer er¬≠ror han¬≠dling in my opin¬≠ion.
  • FIRE (IBP) re¬≠duc¬≠tion of loop in¬≠te¬≠grals in Math¬≠e¬≠mat¬≠i¬≠ca. Tested and con¬≠ve¬≠nient to use.
  • FI¬≠ESTA Math¬≠e¬≠mat¬≠ica sec¬≠tor de¬≠com¬≠po¬≠si¬≠tion code that I ex¬≠ten¬≠sively used in pro¬≠jects. Be¬≠ing writ¬≠ten in Math¬≠e¬≠mat¬≠ica makes this con¬≠ve¬≠nient to use.
  • SecDec Sec¬≠tor de¬≠com¬≠po¬≠si¬≠tion code in Python/C++
  • Hy¬≠p¬≠Exp Math¬≠e¬≠mat¬≠ica pack¬≠age for the ex¬≠pan¬≠sion of hy¬≠per¬≠ge¬≠o¬≠met¬≠ric func¬≠tions.
  • Soft¬≠SERVE Eval¬≠u¬≠a¬≠tion of soft func¬≠tions that can be de¬≠fined in terms of two light-¬≠like Wil¬≠son lines in SCET.
