- NLO Multi-leg (twistors, bootstraps,
improved standard techniques and simulations)
This group will address the
issue of theoretical predictions for multileg processes, in particular
beyond leading order, and the possibility of implementing these
calculations in Monte Carlos. It will also aim at a cross breeding
between novel approaches (twistors, bootstraps,..) and improvements in
- SM Handles and Candles
This group will review and
critically compare existing tools for SM processes, covering issues in
pdf, jets and Higgs physics.
- New Physics
This is a beyond the Standard
Model group, subdivided into SUSY and new models of symmetry breaking.
It will also address the issue of model reconstruction and model
independent searches based on topologies.
There will also be an intergroup dedicated
to Tools and Monte Carlos.
This intergroup will liaise with all WGs
with the task of incorporating some of the issues and new techniques developed
in these groups in view of improving Monte Carlos and setting
standards and accords among the simulation codes
to better meet the experimental needs.
The projects are to start in Jan
2007 and should be completed by the end of the year 2007.
A more detailed plan of work and
lists of specific topics will be provided by Dec 1st 2006, when
registration opens. When registering, it is important to note that at
the Les Houches meeting some activities will be covered either in
- Session I: 11-20 June 2007
