Asked by George Uttley

Hi,

I am trying to launch the process p p > h1 h3 [QCD] in the 2HDM_NLO model with CP conserving and flavour symmetry restrictions. I am getting the follow errors (also the case in the 2HDMtII_NLO model):

Please can you help me to figure out the problem. Many Thanks!

This is the log in GF1 by the way as I do not have a all_G1 folder.

So error 143 means (according to google):
Exit Code 143 happens due to multiple reasons and one of them is related to Memory/GC issues.

So looks like that you cluster has some strong/small default limit for jobs and that such limitation are enforce by c-group.
You will likely need to update the cluster submission mechanism (potentially via a plugin) to relax such limitation.

After adding some fixes for memory issues. I still get the same error on the terminal and the log file is the same minus the Error: Status code 143

Then I would advice to check the cluster related log, to see for which reason those jobs are cancelled.
Such error are infrastructure related and therefore I can not really help you on those.

Hi Olivier,

I am unsure if this is the case as I am also getting this error when running locally and we are no longer getting memory exit code errors.

I also noticed that in P0_uux_h2h3/GF4/log.txt we have an error code:

ERROR: INTEGRAL APPEARS TO BE ZERO.
 TRIED 100352 PS POINTS AND ONLY 0 GAVE A NON-ZERO INTEGRAND.
Error: Status code 1

Presumably this is the reason it is failing. I could not see any error codes in any of the other log files. What can cause this error and why does it only appear in one specific log?

Many thanks for your help.

Cheers,
George

OK,

I guess then, that the issue is that GF4 is crashing, and then this trigger a cluster cancellation of all other jobs leading to the error code 143 of the others directory.

So the question here, is why you do have that contribution to zero.
If this is because some coupling are zero, the solution is to use a restricted model to remove the zero contribution from the start.
If this is due to too hard cut, then the solution is to use softer cut.

Olivier

Hi Olivier,

Many thanks for your previous help.

So it seems this crash comes from vertices with zero couplings. Just testing it for individual quark initial states I found the following:

u u~ > h2 h3 [QCD] - crashes
u u~ > h2 h3 / a h1 h2 h3 [QCD] - crashes
u u~ > h2 h3 / c t [QCD] - crashes
u u~ > h2 h3 / c t a h1 h2 h3 [QCD] - runs fine and gives non zero cross-section

Excluding these intermediate particles, excludes any diagrams with vertices with zero couplings (set deliberately in the param_card). So my question is why doesn't it work when there is a mixture of diagrams with no zero couplings and diagrams with some zero couplings?

Cheers,
George
