Master thesis defense by Christine Overgaard Rasmusen

Title: Next-to-leading order matrix element reweighting

Abstract: In this thesis a generalised method of including the next-to-leading order corrections has been developed building on the reweighting technique. With the reweighting technique one can in a fast way include the next-to-leading order effects in a leading order Monte Carlo sample. A performance study of the developed algorithm has been done in the ZZ->e+e-mu+mu- channel at LHC energies.  The focus of the defense will be on validating the algorithm and NLO results obtained with the reweighting method will be presented in the TGC model for the first time.
