generate_events interrupted with error ValueError : empty string for float()

Asked by Luigi Delle Rose on 2017-11-06

Dear MadGraph developers,

I found a weird behaviour while trying to compute the cross section for the process e- p > e- j mu+ mu-.
The run ends with an error that disappears if I increase the threshold of some of the cuts in the run_card (for instance DeltaR or pt).

Your help would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Best regards,
Luigi

Hi,

I do not have that specific error. But when running with those cuts, I have:

INFO: fail to reach target 10000
DEBUG: write 2289 event (efficiency 9.4 %, truncation 0 %) after 1 iteration(s)
  === Results Summary for run: run_01 tag: tag_1 ===

     Cross-section : 19.6 +- 0.06076 pb
     Nb of events : 2289

Also the cross-section change by a huge number between the survey and the refine.

Those two signs typically indicate that you do not correctly cut some of the LO divergence associated to the process.
So it does make sense that you have to increase your cut. to avoid such divergence.

you do not reach that far in your case due to a quite small /tmp disk space, since the generation of events is plagued by the not correctly divergence, the code tries
to generate many events to try to reach the accuracy, looks like this requires too much disk space in your case.
(But again this is a sign of too soft cuts)

Cheers,

Olivier
