MadEvent MSSM param card calculator is not working

Asked by Damian on 2019-11-09

I have been trying to use the MadEvent MSSM param card calculator where I provide a leshouches spectrum to receive a param card but it seems not to be working. lha file is created with suspect2.
The error I am receiving is like the following:

Generation failed

The resulting /var/www/htdocs/MadGraphData/**myemail@me**/Cards/param_card_1.dat could not be opened.
Click the "backwards" button in you browser and correct the error.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Since we have move to support SLHA2 we do not use such calculator anymore.

Cheers,

Olivier

Thanks Olivier for your prompt reply. Do you know if there is any other way to produce the paramcard from the output file of the suspect2?

what format is provided by suspect2?
If this is SLHA2, then you do not need a converter

Cheers,

Olivier

I guess it is not a slha2 format. I'm attaching an example of the output from suspect2.

Looks like this is close to SLHA1 (but not exactly)
