MC models of multiple partonic scattering inevitably introduce many free parameters, either fundamental to the models or from their integration with MC treatments of primary-scattering evolution. This non-perturbative and non-factorizable physics in particular cannot currently be constrained from theoretical principles, and hence parameter optimization against experimental data is required. This process is commonly referred to as MC tuning. In this chapter we summarize the principles and problems of MC tuning, and the stillevolving modern approach to both model optimization and estimation of modeling uncertainties.
