The Göttingen team involves members of the Sherpa and MadGraph projects based at the II. Institute for Physics Göttingen and the Institute for Theoretical Physics at Heidelberg University.

Projects in Göttingen/Heidelberg focus on either incorporating new physics models into event generators preferably via the FeynRules package, or studying the use of our event generators for specific physics studies. In particular we provide strong expertise in simulating multijet production and the analysis of final states with boosted heavy particles. Proposals for projects that can be undertaken at Göttingen include:

  • Validation of generator predictions for event-shape and sub-jet observables.
  • Studying generator uncertainties for multijet predictions.
  • Implementing new physics models.
  • Interfacing Sherpa with PDF fitting tools.
