Year 3 Group Studies Particle Physics Computing


Information about the Monte Carlo program Pythia can be found here.

There is the manual itself which describes some of the physics concepts of a Monte Carlo program plus the side bar for navigating particular topics. You'll find Sample Main Programs partcularly useful for a start.

Parton Luminosity Plots

The pages from James Stirling (the S) from MWST PDFs contain standard pp cross sections as a function of centre of mass energy. Similarly on the MSTW pages themselves.

Durham Parton Density Function plotter

This plotter can be useful for evaluating the (x,Q^2) dependence of pdfs i.e. how does the gluon change as Q^2 is increased

Snow Mass Energy Frontier (Detector Simulation)

The link includes information on the Snowmass ATLAS/CMS combined detector "Delphes".


Fortran code for calculating MSSM Higgs parameters (link).

In particular there is the online calculator (FHUCC)!
