Photoproduction of multi-jet events at HERA: A Monte Carlo simulation

J. M. Butterworth, J. R. Forshaw

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We study the regime of high-energy photoproduction, currently under exploration at the DESY ep collider, HERA. In particular we discuss the possible production of more than one pair of 'back-to-back' jets which may occur at reasonably high pT as a consequence of the high-parton-density regime opened up at HERA centre-of-mass energies. We describe the construction of a multi-jet event generator based upon leading-order QCD perturbation theory and an eikonal formalism, and show that the effect of multiple parton interactions on event shapes at HERA could indeed be significant.
