Problem with using option "--output" while adding a model

Asked by Anna Ivina on 2018-08-28

Dear experts,

I am trying to use two models for my process that are
import model sm
add model hgg_plugin

in my local computer, it works perfectly, however, for the running it with the Athena, I need to use the option with --output as
add model hgg_plugin --output=local_hgg_plugin

So when I try to implement it locally it gives me the following error:

Command "add model hgg_plugin --recreate --output=model_xxx" interrupted with error:
AttributeError : 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'pdg_code'
Please report this bug on https://bugs.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo
More information is found in 'MG5_debug'.
Please attach this file to your report.

Can you please help me to resolve this issue?

Thank you,
Anna

Hi,

Why don't you use
import model heft?

This is equivalent to
> import model sm
> add model hgg_plugin

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi Oliver,

Sorry for writing again.

I have used the model you proposed and it worked fine.
But now I wanted to try another thing.
I wanted to generate process p p -> hc (with 3 vertices 2 coming from Yukawa and one from effective ggh)
So again I cannot add two models again
I used
import model sm-c_mass
add model hgg_plugin

This will generate for me the right number of vertices.

Maybe you know? Is there also one substitute as in the first case you proposed, for these two models?

Thank you,
Anna

HI,

Such model is likely to exists... but I failed to find it online (did not check CMS database of model)
And should be easy to generate with FR since all component exists.

Cheers,

Olivier

PS: Below you will find a patch to have that command working:

If you plan to use FR, the following page would be usefull:

Hi Olivier,

Thank you for the help.
Actually, I found out that there is Higgs_Effective_Couplings_UFO model which has all the necessary vertices.
I guess it is fine to use this one?

Thanks,
Anna

Sure.

Olivier
