DescriptionXSEDE resources will be used to generate several trillion simulated collision events for the CERN Large Hadron Collider Experiment. The simulated events will be generated by the Monte Carlo simulation program called Herwig 7 ( interfaced with the module HJets++ ( The primary focus will the simulation of the scattering of two protons into a Higgs boson is association with jets (H+3 Jets). Jets are are clusters of energetic hadrons. Hadrons are composite particles that are comprised of fundamental particles called quarks and gluons. Results for the next-to-next leading order QCD corrections of H+3 Jets have been published in Physical Review Letters ( However, further simulations are required to evaluate the theoretical uncertainties for the integrated scattering cross-section and kinematics distributions for H+3 Jets. In order to evaluate the scattering cross-section with a Monte Carlo integration error of 1 per mille, it is necessary to simulate at least a trillion weighted events. The parallel computing computing environment that XSEDE provides will provide the necessary events to achieve lower integration errors.
