      Gieseke, Stefan (HEP, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2002-10)
    • Herwig++ 1.0: An Event generator for e+ e- annihilation. 

      Gieseke, Stefan; Ribon, Alberto; Seymour, Michael H.; Stephens, Phil; Webber, Bryan R. (HEP, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2003-11)
      Results from the new Monte Carlo event generator Herwig++ are presented. This first version simulates Hadron Emission Reactions With Interfering Gluons in electron–positron annihilation. The parton shower evolution is ...
    • Herwig++ 2.0 beta release note. 

      Gieseke, Stefan; Grellscheid, D.; Ribon, Alberto; Richardson, P.; Seymour, Michael H.; Stephens, Phil; Webber, Bryan R. (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2006-02)
      A new release of the Monte Carlo program Herwig++ (version 2.0 ) is now available. The main new feature is the extension of the program to include simple hadron-hadron processes including the initial-state parton shower.
    • Herwig++ 2.0 Release Note. 

      Gieseke, Stefan; Grellscheid, D.; Hamilton, K.; Ribon, Alberto; Richardson, P.; Seymour, Michael H.; Stephens, Phil et al. (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2006-09)
      A new release of the Monte Carlo program Herwig++ (version 2.0) is now available. This is the first version of the program which can be used for hadron-hadron physics and includes the full simulation of both initial- and ...

      Bahr, M.; Gieseke, Stefan; Giggs, M.; Grellscheid, D.; Hamilton, K.; Latunde-Dada, Oluseyi; Platzer, S. et al. (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2008-03)
      In this paper we describe Herwig++ version 2.3, a general-purpose Monte Carlo event generator for the simulation of hard lepton-lepton, lepton-hadron and hadron-hadron collisions. A number of important hard scattering ...
    • New formalism for QCD parton showers. 

      Gieseke, Stefan; Stephens, Phil; Webber, Bryan R. (HEP, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2003-10)
      We present a new formalism for parton shower simulation of QCD jets, which incorporates the following features: invariance under boosts along jet axes, improved treatment of heavy quark fragmentation, angular-ordered ...
    • NLO corrections to the photon impact factor. 

      Gieseke, Stefan (HEP, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2002-08)
      We review the program of the calculation of next-to-leading order corrections to the virtual photon impact factor. Following a brief introduction we present some technical aspects for the various contributions. ...
    • NLO corrections to the photon impact factor: Combining real and virtual corrections. 

      Bartels, J.; Colferai, D.; Gieseke, Stefan; Kyrieleis, A. (HEP, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2002-08)
      In this third part of our calculation of the QCD NLO corrections to the photon impact factor we combine our previous results for the real corrections with the singular pieces of the virtual corrections and present finite ...
    • A Positive-Weight Next-to-Leading-Order Monte Carlo for e+ e- Annihilation to Hadrons. 

      Latunde-Dada, Oluseyi; Gieseke, Stefan; Webber, Bryan R. (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2006-12)
      We apply the positive-weight Monte Carlo method of Nason for simulating QCD processes accurate to Next-To-Leading Order to the case of e+e− annihilation to hadrons. The method entails the generation of the hardest gluon ...
