Model that returns an erroneous hepmc file

Asked by Özer Özdal on 2019-08-14

Hi,

I ran into an issue with Alternative Left-Right Symmetric Model (ALRM) when I try to generate two d primes. I generated p p > dp dp~ in MadGraph (v2_6_4) and use Pythia8 for showering. Even though I generate 100 events, the accepted number of events are only 3, and the error messages are given in the following:

 -------- End LHA initialization information --------
 PYTHIA Error in Pythia::check: unknown particle code , i = 117, id = 6000302
 PYTHIA Error in Pythia::check: charge not conserved
 PYTHIA Error in Pythia::next: check of event revealed problems
 PYTHIA Warning in StringFragmentation::fragmentToJunction: bad convergence junction rest frame
 PYTHIA Error in StringFragmentation::fragment: stuck in joining
 PYTHIA Error in Pythia::next: hadronLevel failed; try again
 PYTHIA Abort from Pythia::next: parton+hadronLevel failed; giving up
 PYTHIA Error in BeamRemnants::checkColours: q/qbar/g has wrong colour slots set
 PYTHIA Warning in BeamRemnants::add: colour tracing failed; will try again
 PYTHIA Error in BeamRemnants::add: colour tracing failed after several attempts
 PYTHIA Warning in SimpleSpaceShower::pT2nextQCD: weight above unity

Then, I generated p p > t t~ to see if I get the same error or not. No problem for p p > t t~
I get the same result when I run ./run_shower.sh for p p > dp dp~
I think the issue is about rho meson structure in Pythia8 bu I couldn't fix it so far. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Ozer

You need to update Pythia8. I am not a Py8 expert but I heard that they had a bug which sounds similar to your bug report. They have release a fix for it as far as I known.
