Title: Simulation of vector boson plus many jet final states at the high luminosity LHC

Abstract

We introduce a novel event-generation framework for the efficient simulation of vector boson plus multijet backgrounds at the high-luminosity LHC and at possible future hadron colliders. Message passing interface parallelization of parton-level and particle-level event generation and storage of parton-level event information using the HDF5 data format allow us to gain leading-order merged Monte Carlo predictions with up to nine jets in the final state. The parton-level event samples generated in this manner correspond to an integrated luminosity of 3 ab -1 and are made publicly available for future phenomenological studies.
