Abstract
Given the current landscape in experimental high-energy physics, these lectures are focused on applications of event generators for hadron colliders such as the Tevatron and LHC. Much of this would also be relevant for e+e−
machines like LEP, ILC and CLIC, or e±p machines like HERA, but with some differences not discussed here. Heavy-ion physics is not addressed, since it involves rather different aspects, specifically the potential formation of a quark-gluon plasma. Further, within the field of high-energy pp/pp collisions, the emphasis will be on the common aspects of QCD physics that occurs in all collisions, rather on those aspects that are specific to a particular physics topic, such as B production or supersymmetry. Many of these... (More)
