The model description

The SMEFT is constructed out of a series of SU(3)C × SU(2)L × U(1)Y invariant (local and analytic) higher dimensional operators L6, L7, ... built out of the SM fields.

The SMEFTsim package is to provide a complete tool for the analysis of the tree level interference terms between the L6 dependent amplitude and the SM amplitudes in a measured process. In this spirit, we stress that this package is neither to be employed for the extraction of accurate SM predictions nor equipped for NLO calculations in MadGraph5_aMC@NLO.

Two independent sets are supplied in the SMEFTsim package. Each one consists three different versions of the SMEFT based on the flavor symmetry assumption adopted:

  • a fully flavour general SMEFT
  • a U(3)5 − SMEFT with non-SM complex phases
  • Minimal flavor violation (MFV) SMEFT

The models are built upon the default SM implementation in FeynRules, from which they inherit the SM fields, parameters and Lagrangian definitions. The original file has been extended and modified to include the complete set of L6 baryon number conserving operators of the Warsaw basis. The loop-induced effective couplings of SM Higgs to gg, γγ and Zγ have also been included. At this stage, the ghost Lagrangian has been left in its SM form. The entire parameter space of the L6 SMEFT and the automatic inclusion of the shifts due to the choice of an input parameters set are implemented.

Each set contains a single master code and a number of subroutines, along with several restriction files. The model file can be loaded in FeynRules using the notebook program, with the product of the UFOs. Model files and pre-exported UFO files to be interfaced with MadGraph5_aMC@NLO can be downloaded on this page.
