Summary
Summary

  • Worked for Al this past summer

    • Contributing to Zg(g) group

    • Examining cross section of Zg(g) production

  • Introduced to MCFM program

    • NLO simulations

    • Using simulations to check how well cross section predictions line up with data (2012)


Mcfm progress
MCFM Progress

  • Have used MCFM to calculate systematic error involved with Zg NLO theory predictions

    • Have identified main contributors to systematic error.

      • QCD scales -

        • mrenorm– varies the energy at which the strong coupling constant is evaluated

        • mfact – varies the energy that evolves the parton content of the proton


Systematic Errors

ΔDs =


Progress plans
Progress/Plans

  • Next, we must consolidate individual systematic errors and calculate an overall error for the Zg cross section prediction

  • Then, repeat the process for Zgg production.
