A new model need QCD process

Asked by Hongxin Wang

I am a complete beginner of Madgraph. I am trying to generate a new process: g g > h1 > h2 z [QCD] , and now I want z decay to e+ e- instead of the SM process, but when I type in "g g > h1 > h2 z > h2 e+ e- [QCD]" , The following error message is coming:

Command "generate g g > h1 > h2 z > h2 e+ e- [QCD]" interrupted with error:
InvalidCmd : wrong format for "g g > h1 > h2 z > h2 e+ e- [QCD]" this part requires one or two symbols '>', 3 found

Whether the SM particles cannot give a specific decay channel in MG5? or Is something wrong in my process?

Thanks ahead for the help!

The syntax

for your process you can try
generate g g > h1 Z > h2 e+ e- [QCD]
