Harland-Lang, L. A. and Khoze, V. A. and Ryskin, M. G. (2016) 'Exclusive physics at the LHC with SuperChic 2.', European physical journal C., 76 (1). p. 3832.
We present a range of physics results for central exclusive production processes at the LHC, using the new SuperChic 2 Monte Carlo event generator. This includes significant theoretical improvements and updates, most importantly a fully differential treatment of the soft survival factor, as well as a greater number of generated processes. We provide an overview of the latest theoretical framework, and consider in detail a selection of final states, namely exclusive 2 and 3 jets, photoproduced vector mesons, two-photon initiated muon and W boson pairs and heavy χc,b quarkonia.
