Multiparton interactions and rescattering

Corke, Richard LU and Sjöstrand, Torbjörn LU (2010) In Journal of High Energy Physics
Abstract
The concept of multiple partonic interactions in hadronic events is vital for the understanding of both minimum-bias and underlying-event physics. The area is rather little studied, however, and current models off er a far from complete coverage, even of the effects we know ought to be there. In this article we address one such topic, namely that of rescattering, where an already scattered parton is allowed to take part in another subsequent scattering. A framework for rescattering is introduced for the Pythia 8 event generator and fully integrated with normal multiparton interactions and initial-and final-state radiation. Using this model, the effects on event structure are studied, and distributions are shown both for minimum-bias and... (More)
