Multi-Parton Interactions at the LHC

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We review the recent progress in the theoretical description and experimental observation of multiple parton interactions. Subjects covered include experimental measurements of minimum bias interactions and of the underlying event, models of soft physics implemented in Monte Carlo generators, developments in the theoretical description of multiple parton interactions and phenomenological studies of double parton scattering. This article stems from contributions presented at the Helmholtz Alliance workshop on ”Multi-Parton Interactions at the LHC”, DESY Hamburg, 13-15 September 2010.
