Automation of NLO computations using the FKS subtraction method


  • Rikkert Frederix

Summary, in English

In this talk the FKS subtraction method for next-to-leading order (in QCD) computations is reviewed and its automation in the computer code MadFKS is presented. As a proof of concept, some results in the form of plots for distributions at next-to-leading order in e+e → 2, 3 and 4 jets are shown by interfacing this code to BlackHat and Rocket.
