    4949==== Note on NLO QCD
    50 For NLO QCD simulation, the model authors recommend using the [wiki:SMEFTatNLO SMEFT@NLO] model which is mostly compatible with the baseline prescription of the LHC TOP WG. Few differences between the {{{dim6top}}} and [wiki:SMEFTatNLO SMEFT@NLO] (August 2019 version) models are to be noted:
     50For NLO QCD simulation, the model authors recommend using the [wiki:SMEFTatNLO SMEFT@NLO] model which is mostly compatible with the baseline prescription of the LHC TOP WG. Few differences between the [wiki:dim6top dim6top] and [wiki:SMEFTatNLO SMEFT@NLO] (August 2019 version) models are to be noted:
    5151- [wiki:SMEFTatNLO SMEFT@NLO] includes Higgs and electroweak operators but does not include top-quark FCNCs.
    5252- [wiki:SMEFTatNLO SMEFT@NLO] is moreover restricted to CP-conserving operator coefficients.
    5353- [wiki:SMEFTatNLO SMEFT@NLO] imposes an enhanced U(2)q×U(2)u×U(3)d flavour symmetry in the quark sector, such that the right-handed bottom quark is treated on the same footing as other light down-type quarks. This is required for consistency with the five-flavour scheme at NLO QCD, where {{{MB=0}}}.
    54 - [wiki:SMEFTatNLO SMEFT@NLO] normalizes the top dipole operator (with coefficient {{{ctG}}}) with a factor of the strong coupling constant {{{G}}} for compatibility with MG 2.x series at NLO in QCD. The 3.x series does not requires it. This implies that {{{ctG_dim6top = G * ctG_SMEFTatNLO}}}. Note that {{{G}}} runs.

    56 Altogether, due to the enhanced quark flavour symmetry and to CP-conservation, [SMEFTatNLO] only includes a subset of 45 top-quark operator coefficients:

    60 A high-precision comparison with {{{dim6top}}} has been performed at leading order following the prescription of [https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.12310 1906.12310], with the [https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~rwgtdim6/mg5amcnlo/plugin_eft_contrib/revision/ plugin_eft_contrib] of MG.

    6262The [wiki:SMEFTatNLO SMEFT@NLO] version dated from August 2019 does not include an implementation of four-fermion operators at NLO in QCD. Its validation is ongoing.
