higgs decaying into w's

Asked by Prudhvi Nikhil Bhattiprolu on 2018-06-13

Dear Madgraph Team,

I am right now working on vector like leptons(which I called lp and lp~), for a particular study in that, I have to generate p p > lp lp~, (lp > z ta-), (lp~ > h ta+, h > w+ w-), (mass of lp and lp~ are taken to be 400 GeV) but I am aware that the phase space is not sufficient for the Higgs to decay into w+ w-. So is there any way to get the final state of "z ta- w+ w- ta+", such that w+ and w- are produced from Higgs (intermediate) ? I tried many ways to do this, but I am not able to figure out a way. Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks much!

Sincerely,
Prudhvi Bhattiprolu

Hi,

Depending of the model you might be force to create a diagram filtering.
But for most model the following syntax should work:
> p p > lp lp~, (lp > z ta-), (lp~ > h > ta+ w+ w-)

Cheers,

Olivier
