The art of combining matrix elements and QCD parton showers


I will discuss concepts and techniques used for the matching and merging of next-to-leading order hard-scattering matrix elements with QCD parton showers in modern Monte Carlo event generators. Furthermore, recent developments to also include next-to-leading order electroweak corrections will be highlighted.
