W + 2 photon events in ALPGEN (P. Bell 4/8/2011)

  • Attempting to generate the ALPGEN W + 2 photon event files for input to PYTHIA or HERWIG
  • (for MC11 official production)
  • ALPGEN can generate W + 2 photons + 0-4 jets
  • (weighted events in first step, unweighted in second, with some associated efficiency)
  • PYTHIA or HERWIG then does showering with “MLM parton matching”
  • (has a further associated efficiency)
  • Overall efficiency is low so need to run parallel jobs (have set up means to do this)
  • Some results/problems:
  • Wgg + 0J
  • 30M weighted events (3 hours) gives 36000 unweighted events =>25000 events to AOD
  • cross section = 0.013pb (Done)
  • Wgg + 1J
  • 300M weighted events (~24 hours) gives 50000 unweighted events => 25000 events to AOD
  • cross section = 0.013pb (Running)
  • Wgg + 2J
  • Estimation: will need 5000M weighted events => order 1000 hours (before MLM efficiency)
  • => Things get worse for 3J and 4J
  • (unweighting efficiency goes down and time per event goes up with more jets)

Have tried to use tightest possible generator

level cuts (highlight differences wrt defaults)

Min charged lepton pT: ATLAS default = 0GeV ?

Max charged lepton eta: ATLAS default = 10

Max photon eta: default: ATLAS default = 6

Max jet eta: default: ATLAS default = 6

jet-jet separation: ATLAS default = 0.7

photon-photon separation: ATLAS default = 0.1?

photon-jet separation: ATLAS default = 0.1?

photon-lepton separation: ATLAS default = 0.1?

W + 2 photon events in ALPGEN

  • Summary
  • Question: Is such low efficiency expected?
  • (NB can reproduce results in ALPGEN manual)
  • Question: Do these input cuts look OK?
  • Event generation is very inefficient for > 1 jets: do we really need this?
  • (we know the +1 jet contribution is important - could run in “inclusive mode” for + >1 jets,
  • i.e. rely on showering)
  • Other MC news
  • Obtained a private (soon to be released) version of VBF@NLO
  • http://www-itp.particle.uni-karlsruhe.de/~vbfnloweb/wiki/doku.php
  • This has W + 2 photon at NLO, and the authors say they will “soon” implement the AQGCs
