Title: Methods and Results for Standard Model Event Generation at $$\sqrt{s}$$ = 14 TeV, 33 TeV and 100 TeV Proton Colliders (A Snowmass Whitepaper)

Abstract

This document describes the novel techniques used to simulate the common Snowmass 2013 En- ergy Frontier Standard Model backgrounds for future hadron colliders. The purpose of many Energy Frontier studies is to explore the reach of high luminosity data sets at a variety of high energy collid- ers. The generation of high statistics samples which accurately model large integrated luminosities for multiple center-of-mass energies and pile-up environments is not possible using an unweighted event generation strategy | an approach which relies on event weighting was necessary. Even with these improvements in e ciency, extensive computing resources were required. This document de- scribes the speci c approach to event generation using Madgraph5 to produce parton-level processes, followed by parton showering and hadronization with Pythia6, and pile-up and detector simulation with Delphes3. The majority of Standard Model processes for pp interactions at √s = 14, 33, and 100 TeV with 0, 50, and 140 additional pile-up interactions are publicly available.
