The WHIZARD / O'Mega interface (C. Speckner) --- UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Overview

The WHIZARD / O'Mega interface generates the model files necessary for the inclusion of a FeynRules model into the WHIZARD / O'Mega framework. All versions of WHIZARD / O'Mega >= 1.92 are supported.

Usage: all versions

As all other interfaces, the WO interface is invoked by calling WriteWOOuput. Three syntax variants are admissible:

  1. WriteWOOutput[Lagrangian, Options]
  1. WriteWOOutput[{LagrangianList}, Options]
  1. WriteWOOutput[Null, WOVertexList->{VertexList}, Options]

Version 1. operates on a single Lagrangian, while 2. operates on a list of Lagrangians and 3. takes a list of FeynmanRules? as an argument. The following options are available:

  • WOVertexList: If =!= Null, this is interpreted as a list of Feynman rules and overrides any Lagrangian (or -list) specified (in this case, Null is accepted as first argument). Default: Null
  • WOModelName: The name by which the model will be identified in WO. Note that all models for W1.9x have to start with "fr" (e.g. WOModelName->"fr_sm") if they are to be picked up by WO1.9x without user intervention (no such restriction exists for W2). Beware that the interface my modify this name if it doesn't fit into the WO naming schemes --- double check the generated messages to be sure. Default: derived from the FR model name
  • WOMaxNcf: Upper limit on the number of generated color flows which the generated code will be able to handle (essentially n_8 - n_3 / 2, where n_8 is the maximum number of external octets and n_3 that of external triplets). Irrelevant for W2; also, the technically experienced user can change this after generation in f90_modellname_Col.ml. Default: 4
  • WOGauge: The following gauges are available:
    • WOUnitarity: Unitarity gauge (default)
    • WOFeynman: Feynman gauge
    • WORxi: Rxi gauges. In this case, you must define a parameter taking the role of \xi and pass it to the interface via WOGaugeParameter (see below).
  • WOGaugeParameters: The parameter which takes the role of \xi in the Rxi gauges, can be either a string or a symbol. Default: "Rxi"
  • WOWhizardVersion: Select the WO version for which you want to generate code. Possible choices:
    • "1.92": WO 1.92
    • "1.93": WO 1.93 - 1.95
    • "2.0" : WO 2.0 (default)
  • WOVerbose: Verbose output. At the moment, this gives detailed information on skipped vertices. Default: False
  • WOAutoGauge: Automagically assign goldstone boson masses.. Default: True
  • WOMaxCouplingsPerFile: The maximum number of couplings written into a single FORTRAN file. Reduce this number if you run into trouble compiling the generated code. Default: 500
  • WORunParameters: A list of all parameters which are recalculated when \alpha_s changes. Without effect for WO1.9x output. Default: {G, aS}
  • WOFast: Set this to False to enable more time consuming checks for known lorentz structures if you have trouble with skipped couplings. Default: True
  • Output: The output directory which will contain the generated model files. Default: derived from the FR model name
