Holger will discuss Professor and Rivet, two tools which he has helped develop and have been embraced by the HEP community.

The Rivet toolkit (Robust Independent Validation of Experiment and Theory) is used for the validation and tuning of Monte Carlo event generators. Professor is a tuning tool for Monte Carlo event generators, based on the ideas described in"Tuning and Test of Fragmentation Models Based on Identified Particles and Precision Event Shape Data" (Z. Phys., C73 (1996) 11-60). Professor reduces the exponentially expensive process of brute-force tuning to a scaling closer to a power law in the number of parameters, while allowing for massive parallelisation and systematically improving the scan results by use of a deterministic parameterization of the generator's response to changes in the steering parameters.
