Soft physics at the LHC

I am studying two aspects of soft physics at the LHC: minimum bias events and the underlying event in high-pT events. Understanding minimum bias events is important for determining radiation levels. We have carried out a study to estimate the uncertainties associated with production in minimum bias events.
