How to upgrade a v4-style model to a v5 style?

Asked by Yury

Dear experts,

I have a BSM particles' MG v4-style model (on lxplus in ~ysmirnov/public/forMgModelUpgrade ). Now I need to upgrade it to v5 style to make it compatible with ATLAS' MadGraph-on-the-fly. Where do I start?

Dear Yuri,

Given the generality of your question, I assume you expect a general answer.

So I would suggest you to start with the list of available UFO model on the FeynRules website:

to see if the model you are interested in (or a generalization of it) does not exist already.
If not, then I suggest you get acquainted with the use of FeynRules.

Finally, notice that MG5 can still import v4 models with the 'import model_v4 <ModelName>' syntax, but I would advise you to use this just as a mean of cross-checking your future implementation of the v5 equivalent UFO model.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Yury for more information if necessary.
