MadAnalysis 5 Public Analysis Database (PAD) for recasting LHC results

This page contains a collection of LHC analyses that have been implemented in the MadAnalysis 5 framework (in the expert mode) described in arXiv:1405.3982 and arXiv:1407.3278. For each analysis, a commented C++ code is available for download, provided together with information on the analysis and references to relevant publications. A careful validation of each implementation is also provided.


The current version of MadAnalysis 5 is version 1.5. This version (and all former versions since v1.3) contains a lot of improvements to make the recasting procedure easier. In order to use all analyses implement in the PAD, you need to install both the delphes and delphesMA5tune detector simulators and the library of analyses shown below. To this aim, once MadAnalysis 5 has been installed and started, it is sufficient to type:

 install delphesMA5tune
 install PADForMA5tune
 install delphes
 install PAD

and restart MadAnalysis 5. Detailed information on the older way of running (with !MadAnalysis5 version 1.2) can be found here


In order to test a new physics signal (corresponding to a Monte Carlo sample mysample.hep.gz or mysample.hepmc.gz), it is sufficient to start MadAnalysis 5 in the reco mode (./bin/ma5 -R) and type

    set main.recast = on
    set main.recast.store_root = False
    import <path-to-the-event-sample>
    submit

The interpreter then asks to edit the recasting card where one can tick/untick the analyses that need to be recasted. One can also use the command

    set main.recast.card_path = <path-to-a-recasting-card>

to provide the recasting card directly. The output directory contains the events of the store_root option has been set to True, as well as the CLs an efficiency information for each signal region of each of the selected analyses. The cross section excluded at the 95% CL by each region is also provided as additional information.


Although we have two options for taking care of the detector simulation (delphes and delphesMA5tune), we recommend, when developing a new recasting code, to use the latest MA5v1.4 version linked to the standard Delphes3 (see these slides for more information). New analyses (within the PAD or separately) can be added by running the script newAnalyzer.py (located in PAD/Build/SampleAnalyzer), passing as an argument the name of the analysis of interest. For instance,

 python newAnalyzer.py cms_sus_14_001

will create and modify the necessary files for adding the analysis named cms_sus_14_001. In particular, a pair of header and source C++ files cms_sus_14_001.cpp and cms_sus_14_001.h are now available in the subdirectory PAD/Build/SampleAnalyzer/User/Analyzer. You can now either implement the analysis yourself or replace the newly created files with those shared by somebody else (or downloaded from the list below in case you do not use the automatic PAD installation from above). For more detailed information, see here.

We strongly encourage users to publish their re-implemented LHC analyses via Inspire. This way they become individually citable. (Send us an email with the Inspire link to integrate your analysis in the PAD.) Recommendations regarding the proper validation are given in arXiv:1407.3278. Note that for every analysis that is part of the PAD, a detailed validation note is required.

For any information on the implementation of an analysis, on the database or on the expert mode of the program, please visit the 'Answers' section of our launchpad page.
