SHERPA is hosted by Hepforge, IPPP Durham


Within our group there are plenty of opportunities for students to join in both on the masters and the PhD level. Corresponding theses focus on the further development of Sherpa or its application to the simulation of high-energy physics events at current and future collider experiments.

So far we have spent a large amount of our time on the development of the computer code which is written entirely in C++. Acquiring a fair amount of working knowledge about this programming language is one of the technical parts of any thesis so far.

Students with interest in particle physics phenomenology are invited to contact the SherpaAuthors.

To gain some insight into previous work, take a look at the following
