Madspin for SMEFT decomposition

Asked by Alexander Ba on 2020-09-04

Dear Madgraph team,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to use Madspin together with the SMEFT decomposition into linear and squared contributions. Thus we decay our top quarks with Pythia instead of Madspin.

At NLO, it seems clear that we will lose the ttbar spin correlations. Is this also the case at LO?

Thank you very much in advance!

Cheers,
Alexander
