cross section of tt+\gamma\gamma in magraph

Asked by Winston on 2020-11-15

Hi experts,
 I obtained the cross section of tt+\gamma\gamma production at LHC through madgraph. The results is 0.01011 ± 9.9e-06 at 13TeV. I think it's too small. The process I generated is exactly p p > t t~ a a.
In this article(https://link.springer.com/article/10.1140/epjc/s10052-016-4048-2), it's said that this process has cross section of
1.02pb. May I ask which one is more reliable?

This question was reopened

This cross-section is infinite without cuts.
So did you use the same cut as the paper?

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,
 Here I just generated p p > t t~ a a with default setting in madgraph.
They are maybe a little difference.
