MG5 + Pythia8 + EvtGen

Asked by Alexander Ba on 2018-09-12

Dear Madgraph team,

is there any possibility to steer Pythia8+EvtGen from Madgraph?

I am currently running:

generate_events
order=NLO
fixed_order=OFF
madpsin=ON
shower=PYTHIA8

and would like to let the b-hadrons decay in EvtGen.

Thank you very much in advance!

Cheers,
Alexander

Hi,

No we do not have any automatic steering for EvtGen (but if Pyhia8 has one internally, then you can use that one obviously)

Cheers,

Olivier
