A Spin 3/2 Particle Decay

Asked by Jeong Han Kim on 2019-09-25

Dear MadGraph team,

Is the decay of spin 3/2 particle fully supported by MadGraph?

For example, spin 3/2 particle can decay into a top and a photon (i.e. T_{3/2} -----> t photon )in the Eq.(2.11) of https://arxiv.org/pdf/1808.03649.pdf

I'm asking this because I'm getting a strange DeltaR_{t, photon} distributions, where there is a couple of weird peaks.

In order to check this, I used MadSpin to decay T_{3/2} -----> t photon, but this doesn't work with the following error message.

Command "generate_events " interrupted with error:
InvalidCmd : The number of of incoming/outcoming fermions are different

More information is found in '/data/MG5_aMC_v2_6_6/spin32_1000/run_02_tag_1_debug.log'.
Please attach this file to your report.

Thank you in advance,

Best regards,

Jeong Han

From the error, you have an issue with the fermion flow.
Did you try to do
 T_{3/2} -----> anti-t photon

I guess this should pass. Then you have to look at your model implementation if this is not the decay that you want/expect.

Cheers,

Olivier
