"Rick's Story of the Underlying Event"

Rick Field , University of Florida
[Host: Craig Group]

I will review the history of underlying event (UE) studies in hadron-hadron collisions starting with the first CDF UE analysis in 2000. Early CDF UE  measurements at 1.8 TeV and 1.96 TeV; the CDF "Tevatron Energy Scan" UE results at 300 GeV, 900 GeV, and 1.96 TeV; LHC UE studies at 900 GeV and 7 TeV: and the recent LHC UE results at 13 TeV will be examined.   I will discuss what we have learned from these studies beginning with the first CDF QCD Monte-Carlo model UE tune (Tune A), and ending with the latest CMS UE tunes (CUETP8S1, CUETP8M1, and CUETHS1).
