2HDM NLOCT Error aS counterterm depends on the kinematic

Asked by Fernando Cornet-Gomez on 2019-09-27

Hello,

I am interested in using MG5 for a 2HDM. In particular I will need to generate higgses via ggF, so if I am not wrong, I need to generate a UFO NLO model in feynrules. Before generating the 2HDM in which I am interested on, I am trying to reproduce the UFO provided by Feynrules in https://feynrules.irmp.ucl.ac.be/wiki/2HDM . For that I use all the files provided in the web page and run them using the .nb given there. Everything seems to work correctly until i run the Counterterms computation with
WriteCT["2HDM/2HDM","Lorentz", Output -> "2HDM", LabelInternal -> True, QCDOnly -> True, KeptIndices -> {}, ZeroMom -> {{aS, {F[7], V[4], -F[7]}, 0}}]
it runs with no error (i get a warning: warning: FF vertex does not seem match expected form, further simplification may be needed) until the {S,S,S,S} vertices that I get Error : Solution for aS counterterm depends on the kinematic, finite part is set to zero. Then it fatally crash.

As I am not interested in the 4 S vertices, I've seen in the C. Degrande documentation (1406.3030) that the there is the possibility of setting them off with Exclude4ScalarsCT->True. Then I get the same error but in the previous step which is {V, V, S, S} vertices.

Is this a known error? Has anyone found a solution?

Thank you for your help,
Fernando Cornet-Gomez

Sorry but we do not support feynrules and nloct here. I would suggest to contact celine Degrande directly by email.

Cheers,

Olivier

Dear Olivier,
Sorry for the inconvenience, I only asked it here because I saw some questions solved about NLOCT by Celine Degrande in this forum.
Cheers

I have assign the bug report to her.
But I can not guarantee that she will receive the notification
