Modern Approach to Monte Carlo Programs
Walter Giele (Fermilab)
October 31, November 2

Driven by needs for predicting cross sections at the Tevatron during run I and II, new theoretical tools have been developed that predict fully differential multi-particle/jet final states in perturbative QCD. To understand the predictions and limitations of these Monte Carlo tools I will discuss leading order/next-to-leading order parton level Monte Carlos and generic parton showers. Special attention will be given to integrating the parton level Monte Carlos with the shower Monte Carlos in a single framework that predicts the perturbative cross section at any resolution scale larger than the hadronization scale.
