Frixione, S., & Webber, B. R. (2005). The MC@NLO 3.1 event generator..
This is the user’s manual of MC@NLO 3.1. This package is a practical implementation, based upon the HERWIG event generator, of the MC@NLO formalism, which allows one to incorporate NLO QCD matrix elements consistently into a parton shower framework. Processes available in this version include the hadroproduction of single vector and Higgs bosons, vector boson pairs, heavy quark pairs, lepton pairs, and Higgs bosons in association with a W or Z. Spin correlations in decays are included for all processes except t¯t, ZZ, and WZ production. This document is self-contained, but we emphasise the main differences with respect to previous versions.
QCD, Monte Carlo, NLO Computations, Resummation, Hadronic Colliders.
