Launch Error for SLHA file created with SOFTSUSY

Asked by Umut C Oktem on 2018-07-11

Hi,

I am trying to generate a MSSM process in Madgraph 5 with parameters calculated using SOFTSUSY. I calculated the spectra and the decays with SOFTSUSY and fed the output SLHA file to MadGraph as param_card.dat. But when I launch the process, I get this error.

Command "generate_events run_01" interrupted with error:
InvalidParamCard : parameter mse2: 2 2 is not to identical to parameter 1 1
Please report this bug on https://bugs.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo
More information is found in '/mnt/c/Users/umbut/OneDrive/Documents/MG5_aMC_v2_6_3_2/higgs_production_8TeV/run_01_tag_1_debug.log'.
Please attach this file to your report.

Does this mean that there is an inconsistency within the parameter card? Thanks.

Hi,

The MSSM model that you use assume that mse2(2,2) and mse2(1,1) have the same value.
This is not the case of your param_card and therefore allowing you to run such param_card will likely lead to an inconsistency.

So you need to use a more generic model (and therefore a slower one) for your generation.

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi,

So would you suggest building a new model from Feynrules that's consistent with my parameter card?

It is extremely likely that such model already exists.
But if not then yes.

Cheers,

Olivier
