Description

Geneva is a Monte Carlo event generator that matches fixed-order NNLO predictions with higher-order (NNLL') resummation in the jet resolution variable (zero-jettiness), and further combines them with parton showers. In this talk, I will first discuss recent improvements in the Geneva framework and demonstrate their impact in selected color-singlet processes. Furthermore, I will present results for the resummation of one-jettiness resolution variable, which is relevant for the production of a color-singlet state (V) together with a hard jet (j). These results constitute an indispensable ingredient and the first steps towards the complete construction of a V+j event generator such as Geneva.
