Failed to disable systematics

Asked by Maksym Ovchynnikov on 2019-08-14

I am using the HeavyN model, https://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/wiki/HeavyN, to launch the process

generate p p > n1 e+

add process p p > n1 e-

in order to obtain the .hepmc file with vetoed events instead of weigted events I tried to remove the systematics using the option

False = use_syst

However, when launcing the MadGraph I got an error

Command "launch auto " interrupted with error:
MadGraph5Error : A compilation Error occurs when trying to compile /home/movchynnikov/Downloads/MG5_aMC_v2_6_5/bin/HNL-from-W-NLO/Source.

I believe that you are running a NLO process, while this option only exists for LO ones.
(i.e. that the process that you indicate in your question is not the one you actually use)

If you think that I'm wrong, please attach the debug file
/home/movchynnikov/Downloads/MG5_aMC_v2_6_5/bin/HNL-from-W-NLO/run_03_tag_1_debug.log

Cheers,

You are right, thank you. I provided incorrect syntax. The correct is

generate p p > n1 e+ [QCD]
add process p p > n1 e- [QCD]

However, the same option (False = use_syst) worked for the process

generate p p > h [noborn=QCD]
add process p p > h j [noborn=QCD]

What is the difference between these two syntaxes such that the second works fine?

Could you please tell me how to find weight value in the .hepmc file? Is it contained in a string with E?

HI,

The second process is a one loop process. Where at the lowest order in pertrubation, the Feynman diagram is a loop.
The [noborn=QCD] is the syntax to generate such type of processes.

Such computation are at LO accuracy (a NLO computation for such processes would need two loop to be included which we can not do). And this is way for such processes, you have the exact same option as for any other LO processes definition.

That I do not know, my only suggestion is to read the paper describing the hepmc convention.

Cheers,

Olivier

Thanks Olivier Mattelaer, that solved my question.
