ValueError : String 1 T(-1003,-1001) T(-1003,-1001) T(-1002,-1000) T(-1002,-1000) cannot be simplified to a number!

Asked by Jacky on 2019-09-11

Hi,

I have a model containing three scalar particles (two leptoquarks and a diquark). From FR I could successfully generate the UFO.
But when using this, I try to run the process d d > e- e- u u it is aborted with the error:

Command "launch" interrupted with error:
ValueError : String 1 T(-1003,-1001) T(-1003,-1001) T(-1002,-1000) T(-1002,-1000) cannot be simplified to a number!
Please report this bug on https://bugs.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo
More information is found in 'MG5_debug'.
Please attach this file to your report.

Interestingly, I could split the process into small processes and those work like a charm!

For example, I could successfully run and calculate the rate for:

generate d d > s3~
generate s3~ > s1 s2
generate s1 > u e-
generate s2 > u e-

Please have a look and let me know if you need more information to sort it out.

Best regards,
Jacky Kumar

Hi Jacky,

This is due to an incoherence of your model,
The issue is that FR does not have a clear definition of the 3/3bar representation
and what likely happen is that some of your quark are set in the wrong representation.

MG5aMC has some "recovery" mode for that (auto-switching representation) but you need to have all your fermion to couple to a color octet.

Hope this help.

Cheers,

Olivier
