or git clone -b rel-2-2-6 https://gitlab.com/sherpa-team/sherpa.git for a local clone.
A Manual is included in the Manual/ directory of the tarball (or the
git-clone). It is available in the HTML and INFO format and provides extensive
documentation of all parameters. It can also be found
The main reference describing the physics of Sherpa is
JHEP02 (2009) 007.
Please cite this publication if you have used Sherpa for your studies.
Additionally, each run will produce a file called Sherpa_References.tex which
contains information about the modules used in this run and the corresponding
publications which should be referred. If in doubt, please seek the advice of
the Sherpa authors.
You can find a large collection of example setups for using SHERPA in various
different colliders/processes in the Examples/ directory of the tarball. They
are also described in the manual.
Note that dijet production with additional jets merged with the CKKW algorithm is broken in the 2.2.x series (#46)
Compute approximate NLO EW corrections (and subleading orders) as on-the-fly alternative event weights (#41). See Example in Manual for details. Currently only works with a soon-to-be-released version of OpenLoops.
Add a filter between the perturbative and the non-perturbative event phase, which can be used to reject events with parton-level cuts (!94)
