Abstract
Event generators simulate high energy particle physics events and are extremely important tools in particle physics analyses. Different phenomenological physics models are implemented in several Monte Carlo (MC) event generators such as PYTHIA, PHOJET and HERWIG etc. These MC event generators have free parameters which need to be tuned to improve the agreement with the data. . The aim of this project is to build an environment for the comparison of Monte Carlo simulations to the data with particular emphasis on the published data from LHC.
Use of FutureSystems
Minimum bias and underlying events are simulated to compare with published data taken from the ATLAS experiment at the LHC.
Scale of Use
Few VMS for an experiment.
