Bothmann, Enrico and Chahal, Gurpreet Singh and Hoche, Stefan and Krause, Johannes and Krauss, Frank and Kuttimalai, Silvan and Liebschner, Sebastian and Napoletano, Davide and Schonherr, Marek and Schulz, Holger and Schumann, Steffen and Siegert, Frank (2019) 'Event generation with Sherpa 2.2.', SciPost physics., 7 . 034.


Sherpa is a general-purpose Monte Carlo event generator for the simulation of particle collisions in high-energy collider experiments. We summarize essential features and improvements of the Sherpa 2.2 release series, which is heavily used for event generation in the analysis and interpretation of LHC Run 1 and Run 2 data. We highlight a decade of developments towards ever higher precision in the simulation of particle-collision events.
