Tuning of event generators to measurements of tt production and a general search for new physics with the ATLAS experiment

Simone Amoroso
The start of the Large Hadron Collider provides an unprecedent opportunity for the exploration of physics at the TeV scale. It is expected to perform precise tests of the structure of the Standard Model and to hint at the structure of the physical laws at a more fundamental level. The first part of this work describes a tune of the initial- and final- state radiation parameters in the Pythia8 Monte Carlo generator, using ATLAS measurements...
