Pileup simulations with Pythia8

Asked by Shubhani Jain on 2020-11-19

Hi

I am trying to generate events with pileup on my toolkit which is MG5+Pythia8. Is there any switch in the Pythia8 card that can do pileup simulations as well?

Thanks

Regards
Shubhani

I thought that pile-up was handle within Delphes (i.e. detector level) .
But maybe Pythia8 does have an internal solution for that but I'm not aware of it.
Please ask Pythia8 authors.

Cheers,

Olivier
