complex mass scheme

Asked by HuanyuBi on 2020-10-16

Hi

If I use
mg5> set complex_mass True
then
Q1:the introduction of the width of W and Z is: A.complex mass scheme; B.fixed width scheme.
Q2:the introduction of the width of top is: A.complex mass scheme; B.fixed width scheme

if I don't use
mg5> set complex_mass True
then
Q3:the introduction of the width of W and Z is: A.complex mass scheme; B.fixed width scheme.
Q4:the introduction of the width of top is: A.complex mass scheme; B.fixed width scheme.

I think the answer for Q1 is A and the answer for Q3 is B. but i am not sure the answer for Q2 Q4.

Q5: if i want fixed width scheme for WZ and complex mass scheme for top. what should i do.

Best regards
Huanyu

If you use the complex mass-scheme.

This applies to ALL masses.
So answer to
Q1 is A
Q2 is A
Q3 is B
Q4 is B

For Q5, we do not support such mix mode.
One solution is to create your own UFO model where all propagator (and the rest) are within that scheme.

Cheers,

Olivier
