Differential distributions and hepmc files

Asked by msadek on 2017-12-25

Hi,

I want to compare some differential distribution (PT(t t~) of the top quark pair production p p-> t tbar, for example) at fNLO (fixed-order NLO) and NLO+PS (NLO matched to parton shower, pythia8 for example), using MadGraph and MadAnalysis.

When I run MadGraph in the NLO+PS mode, I got two event files: "event.lhe.gz" and "events_PYTHIA8_0.hepmc.gz"... I check the particles content of the hepmc file by MadAnalysis (plot NPID), i found only hadrons and leptons...

 Could you please show me how to plot PT(t t~) distribution from the hepmc file?

Cheers,
Sadek

Hi Sadek,

You need to use the interstate option.
