Abstract

We present the PowHel framework to make theoretical predictions for the hadroproduction of tt + hard X (X = H; A; Z, jet) as obtained by matching numerical computations at NLO accuracy in QCD with Shower Monte Carlo programs. PowHel relies on the POWHEG-BOX with input of matrix elements produced by the HELAC-NLO. It produces events according to the Les Houches accord that can be used as input in shower Monte Carlo programs such as PYTHIA and HERWIG to simulate parton showering and hadronization.
