Problem while implimenting the generated UFO in MadGraph

Asked by Siddharth on 2021-04-22

I tried generating the process, p p > hpp1 hpp1c (hpp1 is the doubly charged Higgs and hpp1c is its conjugate) by using the UFO I have generated from SARAH. But I am getting the following error. However, any SM-like process runs quite well like p p > t t~, etc. I couldn't figure where should I look for such an error. Your help will be quite helpful, thanks in advance.

Command "launch " interrupted in sub-command:
"launch" with error:
ValueError : String 1 T(1,2) cannot be simplified to a number!

This is the type of error that you get when the color-structure for some vertex are not set correctly.
The most typical error is to have a mixing of color and anti-colour index for the same particle in particular
for ElectroWeak Vertex with QCD charged particles.

Since this issue is very common with FeynRules, we have some code to auto-correct those when this happens but for that hack to work we need to have all QCD charged particles to couple to gluon.

Cheers,

Olivier

PS: Obviously this hack does not always work, this is not our role to correct all the invalid UFO model.

As I have generated the UFO through SARAH, I couldn't figure out the points you raised. I have attached the link of my UFO, Can you please let me know where should I search for the error?

The error is in the color structure of some vertices (vertices.py)
You have likely a lot of those to be wrong and I’m not going to check by hand all your vertices to have the full list of those who are wrong.
My only suggestion would be to contact Sarah author and ask them to point you to the mistake you made in the implementation of your Lagrangian/particle definitions

Cheers,

Olivier
