QCD effects on new physics searches collecting LO and NLO programs for
signal and background studies examples: SUSY, leptoquarks, Higgs, Z'. What
is available/needed? parton level generators with quark/gluon flavor and
color identification Interfacing with PYTHIA, HERWIG, ISAJET parton shower
Heavy flavor production state of the art predictions for top, bottom (charm)
pair and single production cross sections
Monte Carlo generators PYTHIA, Herwig and Isajet...
Action items from March meeting
How do we merge NLO and or LO calculations with parton showering? What
do we even mean by showering at NLO?
Tune showering to agree with Tevatron data
Compare heavy flavor data with parton showering predictions
Understand status of J/Psi data including polarization
