Scan of CM energy in MAdgraph

Asked by Deepanjali Goswami on 2016-02-24

Hi,
I am wondering how to scan of CM energy in Madgraph.
When I typed it as
 scan:[500, 600, 700] for one beam and
 for other beam as
 scan:[500,600,700]
 It is showing an error given below

Command "generate_events run_01" interrupted with error:
Exception : scan:[500.0, 600.0, 700.0, 800.0, 900.0, 1000.0] can not be mapped to a float

HI,

scan: syntax are only valid for the param_card.

so you have to create your own script for scanning over masses.
