Title: Scientific Summary Report for Early Career Award "High Precision Event Simulation for the LHC"

Abstract

Particle physics has entered a new era with the discovery of the Higgs boson at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). To determine all properties of the boson and to reveal possible signatures of physics beyond the Standard Model it is crucial to make reliable predictions for both signal and background reactions. Monte-Carlo event generators produce such predictions fully differentially at the level of observed particles. They rely on various approximations to cope with the many-body dynamics of the problem and on models to deal with the non-abelian, nonlinear nature of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the quantum-field theoretical model of the strong nuclear force. Dependence on the model parameters is one of the main uncertainties affecting measurements and searches at the LHC. Whenever possible such dependence must be reduced or eliminated.
