first discussion

A few possible studies have been mentioned

  • new experimental studies and recent theoretical ideas might allow us to improve on the “modelling” of FSR g→ bbar (i.e. perhaps some choices for relevant MC parameters might be constrained?). Not obvious if there are direct and phenomenologically relevant applications. However it'd be good to establish if some new exp results would really allow PS developers to make progress. If that's the case, worth putting some effort…
  • flavour excitation: in the context of W-mass measurements, modelling of these effects in PS (and consequently in NLO+PS) is potentially a non-negligible source of uncertainties. Quantify it?
  • pp > V + bbar vs pp> V + H(bbar)

On Tuesday morning we'll meet to finalize and decide what type of studies can be performed
