As the syntax of the !FeynRules model files is similar to the one used in !FeynArts, most of the information is just copied from one model file to the other.In addition, the !FeynArts model file contains the object {{{M$CouplingMatrices}}}, which contains all the interactions and vertices for this model.11 The !FeynRules interface to !FeynArts enables the user to write out a !FeynArts model file for is new physics model just by knowing the Lagrangian and the !FeynRules model file.

In addition, it has thefollowing two options: 17 * {{{Output}}}: The name of the !FeynArts model ﬁle written. The default is {{{M$ModelName}}} with the extension ".mod" appended. 18 * {{{CouplingRename}}}: Whether to rename vertices with a new name and store the deﬁnitions in {{{M$FACouplings}}}. The default is {{{True}}}. 14 {{{ 15 WriteFeynArtsOutput[L1, L2, L3,..., options] 16 }}L 17 where {{{L1}}}, {{{L2}}}, {{{L3}}}, ... denote the Lagrangians which should be used to calculate Feynman rules from. {{{WriteFeynArtsOutput}}} shares all the options of {{{FeynmanRules}}}.
