If you are just looking to simulate the data produced at the LHC then the right program to use is Madgraph. It is by far the most popular Monte Carlo generator to use for simulations at the LHC and can produce events for any process you want. Madgraph will then also invoke Pythia and PGS to simulate hadronization and detector simulations if you wish. There ...

Geant4 is probably the closest thing you could conceivably get. It's a detector simulation software package with a steep learning curve that's heavily used in the HEP community, and, as far as I know, is available for anyone to download and build. Full disclosure - I did HEP experiment once upon a time but that was 20+ years ago. So if someone currently ...

Yes, you could use LHC data for that purpose, and that is exactly what they are doing at LHC. Technically, however, this is a lot harder than you can imagine. An experiment like ATLAS or CMS (the large LHC detectors) does not give you useful event counts by looking at the raw data. There are far too many error sources in both the physics at the interaction ...

Gauge quantum field theories are a robustly confirmed paradigm of contemporary particle physics. The Standard model is a gauge quantum field theory and LHC basically does not do anything else than testing it. There is so much data confirming at least certain ranges of validity from various experiments that the theory received the epithet "standard". If the ...
