Madspin: Higgs diphoton decay missing me5_configuration.txt file

Asked by Robert Wiley Deal on 2018-09-16

Hi all,
I'm attempting to decay Higgs to diphoton via QED loop in MadSpin, but I'm consistently getting this error:

Command "launch " interrupted with error:
IOError : [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Users/BlackMetal/pp_hh_TEST/decay_25_0/Cards/me5_configuration.txt'
Please report this bug to developers
           More information is found in 'MS_debug'.
           Please attach this file to your report.

I've tried 3 versions of Madgraph (2.4.2, 2.6.3.2, 3.0.0) and using MadSpin as a standalone, each having the same issue.
My understanding from https://answers.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo/+question/429612 indicates that this should be possible with the current versions of MadSpin. Am I wrong in this assumption, or is this a bug?

I'm generating the sample with the loop diagram as follows:
import model loop_qcd_qed_sm-with_b_mass
generate p p > h h [QCD]

and after generating events (which works fine), attempting to decay with the following madspin_card.dat (using the spinmode "none," importing the same model, and using the default param card):

Hi,

Can you try to only have the photon decay and not the bb~ one?
Just to check? Mixing loop-induced and non loop-induced type of process is always problematic.
This type of mixin is not supported in any place in MG5aMC, it might work here but it would be by luck.

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,
thanks for the response. I tried isolating the photon decay but it gave the same error as trying the combination between photon and bb~.
In both cases, it seems to only copy over the following cards:
MadLoopParams.dat (modified and the _default)
ident_card.dat
param_card.dat
proc_card_mg5.dat
run_card.dat (modified and the _default)

I tried some other processes with loop decays to test this (setting spinmode to none in each) and this issue seems to happen only on loop-induced decays.
If I can't get this to work with the diphoton loop in the decay, is there any issue with switching to the HEFT model for decaying the loop generated p p > h h sample?

Thanks!
Best,
Robert

Hi,

The problem is that we can not generate event with the syntax [virt=QED]
since that syntax returns another type of output.

The way to make this decay to work is to use the syntax for loop-induced generation:
[noborn=QED]

It also looks like that in that case asking one higgs to decay to bb~ and the second one to decay to photon (via loop-induced) is working.

Cheers,

Olivier
