Toward an Understanding of Hadron-Hadron Collisions: From Feynman-Field to the LHC

I will discuss the QCD Monte-Carlo models that we use to simulate hadron-hadron collisions starting from the early days of Feynman-Field phenomenology. Our understanding of the QCD theory of hadron-hadron collisions has improved tremendously since the early CERN ISR measurements of pions at high transverse momentum at a center-of-mass energy of 53 GeV to the Fermilab CDF studies of high transverse momentum "jets" and the "underlying event" (UE) at 1.96 TeV. I will show how well we were able to predict the early QCD measurements at the LHC at 7 TeV.
