    • Angular correlations of lepton pairs from vector boson and top quark decays in Monte Carlo simulations. 

      Frixione, Stefano; Laenen, Eric; Motylinski, Patrick; Webber, Bryan R. (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2007-02)
      We explain how angular correlations in leptonic decays of vector bosons and top quarks can be included in Monte Carlo parton showers, in particular those matched to NLO QCD computations. We consider the production of n ...
    • Single-top hadroproduction in association with a W boson. 

      Frixione, Stefano; Laenen, Eric; Motylinski, Patrick; Webber, Bryan R.; White, C. D. (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2008-05)
      We present the calculation of the Wt single-top production channel to next-to-leading order in QCD, interfaced with parton showers within the MC@NLO formalism. This channel provides a complementary way of investigating ...
    • Single-top production in MC@NLO. 

      Frixione, Stefano; Laenen, Eric; Motylinski, Patrick; Webber, Bryan R. (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2005-12)
      We match next-to-leading order QCD results for single-top hadroproduction with parton shower Monte Carlo simulations, according to the prescription of the MC@NLO formalism. In this way, we achieve the first practical ...
