Study on the validity/performance of different pQCD approximations for non-trivial observables in pp->h+jets (ggF)

If you are interested in contributing please subscribe to the mailing list. You will be asked to log in with your CERN account. If you don't have a CERN account, please fill this form to create a lightweight account.

The aim is to study various non-trivial observables of experimental interest/relevance with calculations implementing various different perturbative QCD approximations. There is a Rivet routine provided and all participating parties are encouraged in using it.

Setup

Collider: LHC@13TeV

PDF/as: MMHT2014nlo68clas118 (as(mZ)=0.118) (LHAPDF-id: 25200), MMHT2014nnlo68cl (as(mZ)=0.118) (LHAPDF-id: 25300), as applicable

Scales: muR/muF depending on calculation, of course. However, usually there is freedom on pp→h+0j level, thus please choose a scale that reproduces mH/2 in the 0j limit, eg. HT'/2 instead of HT' in pp→h+3j at fixed order. All other scales as needed.

mH: 125 GeV

GammaH: 0.00407 GeV (where applicable)

Uncertainties

* renormalisation and factorisation scale uncertainty

* relevant parton shower / matching uncertainties (starting scale, other choices)

* merging scale uncertainties

Analysis routine

There is a Rivet analysis provided to all interested parties. The routine is now finalised and can be used for production.

Analysis

To use it, download the file and remove the “.txt” ending. Then add Rivet to your path (conveniently through sourcing rivetenv.sh) and compile using

rivet-buildplugin RivetLHAnalysis.so mc_hjets_lh15.cc

then setting

export RIVET_ANALYSIS_PATH=$PWD

lets Rivet pick up the new library and Rivet is instructed to use it through the option

-a MC_HJETS_LH15

Let us know if you encounter any problems or bugs.
