Changing the phase-space generator when calculating cross sections

Asked by Steven Jeremies on 2021-06-10

Hi,

when evaluating a given matrix element at different phase-space points, I can choose a standalone output and then change the phase-space generator by adding a new one in the check_sa.f file. Is something similar possible when calculating cross sections or am I bound to rambo?

Thanks in advance!

Normal cross-section computations are not based on rambo.
You can choose plenty of the parameter of how the phase-space integrator is handle
via the run_card.dat especially via hidden parameter (that you can display with the command
"update to_full")

In standalone output, the point is to have the simplest code possible such that other code can use it for their own purpose. So in that context you can replace rambo by what you need/want.

Cheers,

Olivier
