Simulating Hard Photon Production at Hadron Colliders — •Steffen Schumann — Institut fuer Theoretische Physik, Universitaet Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany
The measurement of final states containing hard photons plays a key role in hadron collider experiments. They can be used to determine the absolute energy scale of jets and to constrain the gluon distribution inside the beam hadron. Furthermore the diphoton signature is a promising channel for the search for a Higgs boson. In this talk I will discuss the theoretical modelling of single and diphoton final states based on a parton shower model merged with higher order tree level QCD and QED matrix elements.
