Update of the MCSANC Monte Carlo integrator, v. 1.20
- 29 Downloads
New features of the MCSANC v.1.20 program, a Monte Carlo tool for calculation of the next-to-leading order electroweak and QCD corrections to various Standard Model processes, have been presented. The extensions concern implementation of Drell–Yan-like processes and include a systematic treatment of the photon-induced contribution in proton–proton collisions and electroweak corrections beyond the NLO approximation. There are also technical improvements such as calculation of the forward–backward asymmetry for the neutral current Drell–Yan process. The updated code is suitable for studies of the effects due to EW and QCD radiative corrections to Drell–Yan (and several other) processes at the LHC and for forthcoming high-energy proton–proton colliders.
