QCD and Monte Carlo techniques
In this course the basics of Monte Carlo techniques and the theory of strong interactions, Quantum Chromodynamics, are covered. We will discuss the QCD evolution equations and the application to processes at the LHC, in particular the transverse momentum spectrum of Z and Higgs bosons.
In the exercises we will apply basic Monte Carlo techniques for integration and finally construct the parton evolution to calculate the transverse momentum distribution of Z and Higgs bosons.
