Real and Virtual Photon production in POWHEG

by Alexander Neuwirth (University of Münster)


Both prompt real and virtual photons are sensitive probes of the 
properties of the quark-gluon plasma and of the gluon distribution in 
light and heavy nuclei.

Despite different experimental signatures, they originate from 
topologically similar Feynman diagrams and both have the background of 
hadron decays (arxiv:2401.12875). In this context, I will also touch on 
the connection between fragmentation functions and parton showers. 
Finally, I will also briefly showcase recent progress made in extending 
POWHEG capabilities to support DIS (arxiv:2309.02127).
