Logarithmic accuracy of angular-ordered parton showers.

Bewick, Gavin and Ravasio, Silvia Ferrario and Richardson, Peter and Seymour, Michael H. (2020) 'Logarithmic accuracy of angular-ordered parton showers.', Journal of high energy physics., 2020 (4). 019.


We study the logarithmic accuracy of angular-ordered parton showers by considering the singular limits of multiple emission matrix elements. This allows us to consider different choices for the evolution variable and propose a new choice which has both the correct logarithmic behaviour and improved performance away from the singular regions. In particular the description of e+e− event shapes in the non-logarithmic region is significantly improved.
