Plotting individual PDF replicas

Asked by Cameron Voisey on 2019-10-03

Dear developers,

I am new to using MA5 so apologies if the answer to my question is explained somewhere else. I would like to plot distributions with a separate line for each PDF replica. Specifically, I would like to combine two batches of events (one containing forward events, one containing backward events) into a forward-backward asymmetry, and plot this for each replica. Is this possible with MA5? I asked a related question on the MG5 page and was told that the LHE files should have all the necessary information to plot each replica, so it's down to the analysis code to plot the correct thing.

Thanks for your help!

Best wishes,
Cameron

Dear Cameron,

MA5 cannot deal with multiweighted events yet. This is on the to-do list and developments are currently on-going, but we are far from being able to release something usable. I am afraid that the only option is to hack the code to make it working as you want (in the expert mode).

Cheers,

Benjamin
