Gieseke, S., Ribon, A., Seymour, M. H., Stephens, P., & Webber, B. R. (2003). Herwig++ 1.0: An Event generator for e+ e- annihilation..
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 carried out using new evolution variables suited to describing radiation from heavy quarks as well as light partons. The partonic final state is fragmented into hadrons by means of an improved cluster hadronization model. The results are compared with a wide variety of data from LEP and SLC.
