W+jets matrix elements and the dipole cascade

Lavesson, Nils LU and Lönnblad, Leif LU (2005) In Journal of High Energy Physics 7(54).
Abstract
We extend the algorithm for matching fixed-order tree-level matrix element generators with the Dipole Cascade Model in Ariadne to apply to processes with incoming hadrons. We test the algoritm on for the process W+n jets at the Tevatron, and find that the results are fairly insensitive to the cutoff used to regularize the soft and collinear divergencies in the tree-level matrix elements. We also investigate a few observables to check the sensitivity to the matrix element correction.
