Missing key 'pjfry' in reweighting at NLO

Asked by Baptiste Ravina on 2020-09-17


I'm trying to reweight simple ttbar production at NLO in v2.7.2, using various EFT coefficients from the SMEFT@NLO model. The generation works fine, but the reweighting step fails with

reweight /Users/bravina/TempMG5/MG5_aMC_v2_7_2/ttbarSMEFT/Events/run_05/events.lhe.gz_0.lhe -from_cards --multicore=create

Thanks Olivier! I've moved to v2.8.0 with python 2.7, but I now encounter a different error

Is the statement about not being able to download the PDF set related to the error? It shows up fine in HEPTools/lhapdf6/share/LHAPDF/NNPDF23_nlo_as_0119_qed/

This means that your f2py compiler is not present in your PATH and is not define in input/mg5_configuration.txt
This is a code install with numpy which is needed for the reweighting.

Note that in 2.8.0
you can can specify in input/mg5_configuration.txt
f2py_py2 and f2py_py3
which allow you to specify the path for either the one compatible with python2 or the one compatible with python3.
(not that 2.8.0 runs by default python3 even if your default python is python2)

Hi Olivier,

I found this information in an old ticket too, sorry for the noise :)
Set "f2py_compiler_py2 = /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Extras/bin/f2py"
and everything seems to run smoothly now.
