Abstract / short description:
After the discovery of the Higgs boson accurate measurements confronted with high-precision calculations are essential to reveal
whether all properties of this new particle are compatible with the
expectations of the Standard Model. Complementary to information
gained in the Higgs sector itself, crucial constraints on the structure of the Standard Model are provided by a precision analysis of the gauge
boson sector. While the status of the required higher-order
perturbative calculations in terms of the strong interaction is quite
advanced, electroweak corrections have received less attention in the
past. However, their impact can be considerable at currently
accessible collider energies already, and is expected to become even
more significant at future hadron colliders operating at yet higher
energies. With this proposal we envisage to close that gap for a
selection of phenomenologically particularly important electroweak
processes at hadron colliders. For these we plan to develop Monte-
Carlo programs that permit, at the same time, the computation of
strong and electroweak corrections and their matching with QCD and
QED shower generators. This will allow us to obtain accurate yet
realistic predictions for experimentally accessible observables at
current and future hadron colliders. With our new tools we will perform
detailed phenomenological studies to quantify the interplay of various
types of radiation effects in different energy regimes.
