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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: most of the currently available recast codes have been developed for our MA5tune version of Delphes within MadAnalysis5 v1.1. If you want to use these recast codes with the latest MadAnalysis 5 v1.2, you still have to install DelphesMA5tune as detailed below. For updating the analysis codes to use them with the standard Delphes3 linked to MadAnalysis 5 v1.2, see these slides. In this case it is however advisable to re-do the validation of the analysis code(s). Note also that the standard Delphes and delphesMA5tune still cannot be used simultaneously in v1.2. The update of the full PAD to Delphes3/MA5v1.2 is in progress.

When developing a new recast code, preferably use the latest MA5v1.2 linked to the standard Delphes3.

In order to use the current version of the PAD, after installation of MadAnalysis 5, you also need our modified version of Delphes. To install it, type

 install delphesMA5tune

within MadAnalysis 5. Beware that the standard Delphes and delphesMA5tune cannot be used simultaneously, you must install only the one or the other!! If you want to use our scripts for limit setting and efficiency maps (see here), next type

 install RecastingTools

For creating a working directory that contains all the analyses that are publicly available, then type

install PAD

New analyses (within the PAD or separately) can be added by running the script (located in Build/SampleAnalyzer), passing as an argument the name of the analysis of interest. For instance,

 python 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 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).

Here is a detailed step-by-step introduction to installing and using the MA5 PAD

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.

[1] This analysis requires MINUIT libraries. Therefore, the line

 LIBFLAGS += -lMinuit

should be added to the Makefile of the Build/ directory before compilation.
