Model Files

  • SM.fr : This is the new main file (FeynRules versions >= v1.6.2).
  • SM_old.fr : This is the older implementation (FeynRules versions < v1.6.2).

Instructions

The Standard Model (SM) is implemented in both Feynman and unitary gauge. A switch FeynmanGauge has been created. To switch between the two simply set FeynmanGauge = True/False inside your mathematica notebook after loading the model but before doing any calculations with it (finding vertices for example.) FeynmanGauge is set to False by default. The NLO counterterms have been computed and can be found in the SMQCD.nlo. They can be exported in the UFO format to Madgraph5/aMCatNLO.

Examples

  • SM.nb: This is an example Mathematica® notebook that loads SM.fr and calculates Feynman rules.

Validation

The SM implementation was extensively tested on various 2-to-2 processes. A selection is shown in this table. (Note that the discrepancy with MG stock simply comes from the fact that MG stock has the 4 higgs vertex not implemented). The counterterms analytic expressions have been checked with the literature and the UFO compared with the built in version of SM in Madgraph5/aMCatNLO.

Interfaces

This model implementation is known to work with the following interfaces:
