Decay chain of Higgs pair with MadSpin

Asked by Peter Meiring on 2019-04-30

Dear MadGraph experts,

To produce gg>hh at NLO I am using the model from arXiv:1401.7340.

After the Higgs pairs are generated I would like one Higgs decaying to b b~ and one Higgs decaying to W+ W-, which both decay leptonically.

So far, I have used MadSpin to do the decays of the Higgs pair:

import model SMEFT_UFO pathtoSMEFT_UFO/restrict_no_b_mass.dat --bypass_nocheck
set spinmode none
decay h > b b~
decay h > w+ w- > l v l v
launch

Since I set spinmode to "none" there are no spin-correlation effects. I do, however, want to have the correct spin-correlations for the leptons. If I change spinmode to "onshell", I get an error: KeyError : ((21, 21), (25, 25))
The run_28_tag_1_debug.log is shown below.

Could you please let me know if I'm doing the correct thing to decay the Higgs pair? Am I using the correct commands and what does the error mean?

Looking forward to your response!
Kind regards,

Peter Meiring

Hi,

Since the Higgs is a spin0, they are no interest to use spinmode on onshell for the HIggs. (expect slowing down your code.)
So please keep the mode to none.

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,

Thank you very much for you quick reply!

I asked this question, since I'm trying to compare my own generated samples with ATLAS samples, which have used the same model for the generation of the Higgs-pair. ATLAS used Herwig7 to do the decays and showering, whereas I used MadSpin for the decays and Herwig6 for the showering.

We have seen some difference in kinematics; For example, the pt of the charged leptons is higher (~10 GeV roughly speaking) and the DeltaPhi between the charged leptons is a bit lower.

Since the cuts at generation (like minimum lepton pt) are the same, we expected the observed differences are coming from how we decay the Higgs pair, more specifically the spin-correlations.

As you suggested, spinmode "none" works fine, but does this mean that the W's from h>WW can also have f.e. a non-zero sum of spins? And is there then also no spin-correlation in the leptons and the W's?

We have also been in contact with Stefano Frixione about this same question. In fact, he did suggest spinmode "onshell" when decaying H>WW. I think it would be nice to compare both spinmode "none" and spinmode "onshell" to look for kinematic differences. However, the error above appears and it crashes. Do you think it is possible to get spinmode "onshell" working?

Thanks again, your help is highly appreciated!
Cheers,

Peter Meiring

The H > 4 lepton have full spin-correlation in the spin-mode "none" case.

To be precise, the spin-mode "none" do the following:
1) it generates N events for g g > h h. (with standard MG5aMC method)
2) it generates N events for h > b b~ (with standard MG5aMC method)
3) it generates N events for h > W+ W- > l v l v (with standard MG5aMC method)
4) it takes each events of the g g > h h sample and glue to them (i.e. boost the 4-momenta)
one of the event of the two other sample such that the Higgs 4-momenta match.

The mode onshell, does actually the same. but has in top of that an accept/rejection method
to correct for the spin-correlation of the Higgs propagators.
This is given by |M_full|^2/|M_prod^2/ |M_dec1|^2/ |M_dec2|^2

Since the decaying particle are spin 0. this ratio should always be a constant and therefore the onshell mode
should keep all event (i.e. behaves like the none mode).
I would actually consider any deviation between the two method as a bug.

Interesting maybe but only to spot error/bug in the onshell method.

In this context, I would not care at all, yes it would be nice to have it working, but this has very low priority.

Thank you very much! That solved my question.
