a problem about single top process matching

Asked by KP.Xie on 2018-08-23

Hi,

I met a problem when trying to do matching in the standard model p p > t j process. The code I used is

>import model sm-no_b_mass
>generate p p > t j @1
>add process p p > t j j @2
>output SM_pp_tj

and then I launched, and selected delphes->on. The parton level process was calculated correctly, however, when parton showering pythia8 saids

Command "generate_events " interrupted with error:
Exception : program /Users/kpxie/Documents/HEP_Tools/MG5_aMC_v2_6_3_2/SM_pp_tj/Events/run_02/PY8_parallelization/run_PY8.sh 0 launch ends with non zero status: 139. Stop all computation

I don't know why. I tested MG_2.6.3.2, MG_2.6.2, and MG_2.5.5, and they yielded the same result. My computer is MacBook Pro with OS 10.13.4. Would you please help me? Thanks!

Best,
Ke-Pan Xie

just set JetMatching:nJetMax = 2 in "pythia8_card.dat".

I notice that pythia8 automatically set it to 1.

You should probably also set
JetMatching:nJetMin to 1 in that case,

Hi Rui and Olivier,

Thanks for the quick reply! I tried the method of Rui (物理), and that works. But the jet min matching order yielded a warning as follows:
>set JetMatching:nJetMin = 1
WARNING: invalid set command JetMatching:nJetMin = 1

I don't know why.

Mg5amc does not know that py8 parameter and therefore you can not use that syntax for the edition of the py8 card.

You can edit the card manually or specify the card that you want to edit
Set pythia8 JetMatching:nJetMin = 1

Cheers

Olivier
