  • : This is the older implementation (FeynRules versions < v1.6.2).

Model Restrictions


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.


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


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.


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

UFO models

  • SM_NLO.tar.gz UFO model with QCD corrections with the top and bottom yukawa renormalised in the on-shell scheme
  • SM5F_NLO.tar.gz UFO model with QCD corrections in the 5 flavour scheme (massless b but non-vanishing bottom yukawa renormalised in the MSbar)
  • SM4F_NLO.tar.gz UFO model with QCD corrections in the 4 flavour scheme (massive b but bottom yukawa renormalised in the MSbar)
