Extending CKKW-merging to One-Loop Matrix Elements

Lavesson, Nils LU and Lönnblad, Leif LU (2008) In Journal of High Energy Physics 12(070).
Abstract
We extend earlier schemes for merging tree-level matrix elements with parton showers to include also merging with one-loop matrix elements. In this paper we make a first study on how to include one-loop corrections, not only for events with a given jet multiplicity, but simultaneously for several different jet multiplicities. Results are presented for the simplest non-trivial case of hadronic events at LEP as a proof-of-concept.
