LHE files

Asked by msadek on 2017-11-22

Dear MadAnalysis team,

In MadGraph NLO fixed order mode, one can generate an event file (events.lhe.gz) by choosing 'FO_ANALYSIS_FORMAT = LHE' in the FO_analysis_card.dat file.

(1) I wonder if the differential distributions obtained from 'events.lhe.gz' by MadAnalysis are physical? (i.e. are they equivalent to those obtained by HwU or the topdrawer'?)

(2) How we can plot the error bars of a Histogram from .lhe file by MadAnalysis?

Cheers,
Sadek

There are various way to generate an LHE file. If the LHE event file is physical, the distributions are physical. If not, they aren't.

We can't, at the moment. This item has a high priority on our to-do list.

Cheers,
