Arbeitsgruppe Kulesza

Research interests

Hadron collider phenomenology:

  • production of coloured SUSY particles

    NNLL-fast: the code to calculate NNLL + approximated NNLO squark and gluino production cross section, and its predecessor, NLL-fast

  • Higgs production
  • precision calculations, in particular:
    • QCD resummation,
    • electroweak corrections,
  • multiple parton scattering


PSR workshop 2018

After very successful meetings of the “Parton Showers, Event Generators and Resummation” workshop series in Münster in 2014 (see here), Cracow, Poland in 2015, France in 2016 and Cambridge, UK in 2017, the 2018 edition will take place 4–6 July in Lund, Sweden. More information coming soon!
