We present an implementation of the production of three jets at NLO plus parton-shower effects in the POWHEG BOX. Using the recently introduced MiNLO procedure for setting the renormalization and factorization scales, we are able to obtain a generator that is also well behaved when the third jet becomes unresolved. We compare key distributions computed at the NLO level, at the level of the POWHEG hard emission and after full shower by PYTHIA, PYTHIA 8 and HERWIG6. We also compare our three-jet generator with the already available dijet POWHEG generator

Abstract

We present an implementation of the production of three jets at NLO plus parton-shower effects in the POWHEG BOX. Using the recently introduced MiNLO procedure for setting the renormalization and factorization scales, we are able to obtain a generator that is also well behaved when the third jet becomes unresolved. We compare key distributions computed at the NLO level, at the level of the POWHEG hard emission and after full shower by PYTHIA, PYTHIA 8 and HERWIG6. We also compare our three-jet generator with the already available dijet POWHEG generator
