Automated calculations for MPI

Abstract content

We present a complete Monte Carlo program for automatic calculations of hard single- and multi-parton scattering processes within collinear- and k_T-factorization. It can use any k_T-dependent pdfs in the form of a grid file, and collinear pdfs from LHAPDF. It provides all tree-level matrix elements for any processes within the standard model and includes efficient phase space generators. It produces event files with which arbitrary observables can be studied. These files also include the necessary weights to deal with arbitrary (multi-)parton distribution functions via re-weighting of the events.
