"ZeroDivisionError: float division by zero" when running fixed order (p p > l+ vl a QCD=0 NP=2 [QCD]) in the SMEFTatNLO model

Asked by matteo maltoni on 2021-05-20

Dear MadGraph experts,

I'm trying to run a fixed order analysis for (p p > l+ vl a QCD=0 NP=2 [QCD]) using the SMEFTatNLO model, but I get the error I report below, together with the log file. The error mentions req_acc, but I'm carrying on a fixed order generation...

Can you help me fixing this?

Moreover, is it correct to set gamma_is_j to False, since I want to set constraints on its pT?

Thank you,

Matteo

Hi Matteo
Any chance you are trying to integrate a process with 0 xsection?

can you try adding QED=3 in order to enable the SM part?

Cheers,

Marco

Dear Marco,

Thank you for your answer. I added the QED=3 flag, and now it says that no event passed the cuts I imposed:

Command "launch auto " interrupted with error:
Exception : program /home/matteo/Scrivania/MG5_aMC_v3_1_0/bin/pp_w_lva/fixed_order_QED3/SubProcesses/P0_udx_veepa/ajob1 1 all 0 0 launch ends with non zero status: 1. Stop all computation

Please attach this file to your report.
INFO:
quit

This error doesn't show up if I set gamma_is_j=True in the run_card: in that case, the generation begins normally.
Anyway, I need to set cuts over the final photon's pT and pseudorapidity: do you have any hint about what I can do?

Best,

Matteo

Ciao Matteo,
you should not recombine photons and leptons/quark.
Try setting lepphreco and quarkphreco to false

Cheers,

Marco

Hi Marco,

I set the two variables to False, but the same error occurs. While it is compiling the directories, these warnings are raised:

It looks like the problem is solved if one removes from cuts.f these lines

298 write(*,*) 'ERROR in cuts.f: photon isolation is not working'
299 $ // ' for mixed QED-QCD corrections'
300 stop 1

And sets gamma_is_jet = False, lepphreco = False and quarkphreco = False in the run card.
The first fact needs to be taken care of in 3.1

Thanks marco zaro, that solved my question.
