Colour and electroweak evolution and a new paradigm for event generators
I will introduce the amplitude evolution paradigm which is a powerful approach to designing and understanding parton shower algorithms. It is also a resummation algorithm in its own right. Starting from QCD, and in particular the question how colour structures evolve, I will present how this formalism can be generalized to the case of electroweak exchanges and emissions, and what we can learn about building accurate electroweak parton shower algorithms.
