single top, versions of MG5

Asked by Giancarlo Panizzo on 2014-04-10

Dear MG5 team,

I've just moved from version 2 beta to the latest one. I'm working with a BSM model, but my issue can be reproduced using a top with high mass (let's say mtop_new = 10*mtop). The point is that for the process
p p > t b~ qj (qj = u d c s u~ d~ c~ s~)
(+ charge conjugate)
there is a factor ~2 in the cross sections computed at LO between the two versions. The discrepancy reduces to ~ 4% with the usual top mass. I guess the good number is the one from the latest version, my problem is only to understand if I'm doing things correctly or if there's someting about single top production physics I'm missing.

Thanks

Giancarlo Panizzo
