No Integration channels found

Asked by Jack Y. Araz on 2020-07-27

Dear Oliver

I'm having a problem with the survey part of the simulation. I'm using DMsimp model to generate mono jet events at NLO but I realised that *sometimes* I get "WARNING: No integration channels found for contribution XXXX" and it crashes by giving the following error;

File "/mt/batch/jaraz/MG5_aMC_v2_7_3/madgraph/interface/amcatnlo_run_interface.py", line 2536, in update_jobs_to_run
    jobs[i]['nevents'] += 1
IndexError: list index out of range

However, this doesn't happen all the time, if I run the exact same sample again it can pass the integration check. Thus I think it's about the allowed iteration during the survey. Is there a way to increase the number of trials? Or is there anything else I can do?

Mg5 v2.7.3

Thanks
Best regards
Jack

Hi Jack,
some extra information would be needed.
I suggest you to run with a fixed random seed in the run_card (iseed), and see if you still get that error.
In that case, go into the P0 dir which has no channel, and run ./gensym NLO

What process are you considering?

Cheers,

Marco

Hi Marco

Thanks for the answer. I'm running DMsimp model from feynrules (tried both the combined and separate packages under the dedicated page) and running 'p p > xd xd~ j [QCD]' with different restrict cards. For instance, for a spin-1-mediated process, the gV** are on, and rest is zero etc.

I tried with a fixed seed and got the same error (currently running for spin-1-mediated one) One of the integration channels that shows up is P0_gu_xdxdxu, so I went into that folder and ran './gensym NL O' as requested. The result is attached below.

Thanks
Best regards

Hi Jack,
ok, thanks.
It looks like you are using
   10 = dynamical_scale_choice ! Choose one (or more) of the predefined
in the run_card, but you have not defined the corresponding scale inside setscales.f (around line 564)

Let me know if this helps

Marco

Hi Marco

My setscales.f between L564-575 (without the comments) is as follows

      elseif(dynamical_scale_choice.eq.10) then
  write(*,*) "User-defined scale not set"
         stop 1
         temp_scale_id='User-defined dynamical scale' ! use a meaningful string
  tmp = 1500d0

Which is the mediator mass. As you suggested I used -1 for the dynamical scale choice and it works without a problem. I realised that I forgot to remove

  write(*,*) "User-defined scale not set"
         stop 1

from the setscales.f without those, it worked nicely.

Thank you very much
Best regards
Jack Y. Araz
