ERROR: Convention for the param_card seems to be wrong.

Asked by Pauline May Amethyst G. Salise on 2020-10-23

Hello,

I'm new to MadGraph and I tried to launch a process. I used the mssm model and edited the beam energies on the run card. Everything actually finishes but I can't ignore these warnings and error:

Results were generated, however, I can't find the links for the plots that other tutorials are saying. I'm quite not sure if I had done anything right. I hope to be enlightened. Thank you!

Sincerely,
Pauline Salise

Hi,

mssm type of model are always been tricky.
We actually do not have a model named mssm so could you be more specific about which model you are using.

The issue with mssm type of model is that two convention exists for the benchmark point
you have SLHA1 and SLHA2 accord some of the mssm model expects one format and the others expects the other. If you prrovide the wrong forrmat, you would see warning if you try to use to wrong format and as you will see we will use a simple converter to try to fix the issue but the best is to use a model which matches the type of input that you will provide.

Cheers,

Olivier
