    8783The above Lagrangian in the Feynman Gauge was implemented into FeynRules  2.3.10. QCD renormalization and R2 rational counter terms were determined using NLOCT 1.02 and FeynArts 3.8. Feynman rules were collected into a single UFO, available below.  
    8884In the UFO file, five massless quarks are assumed as are zero off-diagonal CKM matrix entries.

    9086These additions permit tree-level calculations at LO and NLO in QCD, loop-induced calculations at LO in QCD, and NLO matched to NNLL(Veto) resummation using MadGraph_aMC@NLO.
