Missing ET cut missing in run_card.dat

Asked by Ankit Beniwal on 2020-07-13

Hi Olivier,

I'm using MG5_aMC@NLO v2.7.3 to study the phenomenlogy of a dark matter model. However, the run_card.dat doesn't seem to show any missing ET variable or any cuts applied to it.

Following is a copy of my run_card.dat. If you need further details, let me know.

Hi,

We have a missing ET cutbut is only applied on neutrino.
Since you do not have any neutrino in the final state, we do not writte it in the run_card

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,

I thought dark matter in the final state contributes towards missing transverse energy/momentum. Isn't this not the case? Is this not implemented in madgraph?

Thanks.

Can you help with this problem?
