Practical Introduction to Selected Tools for High Energy Physics

This session forms part of the residential module DISC6001 and will be provided by Alexandra Belyaev with a MADGRAPH5 tutorial provided by Dermot O’Brian.

 

Aims & Objectives:

Students with about automatic evaluation of Matrix Elements and simulation of the processes within and Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) using CalcHEP package. They will also learn about automatic derivation of Feynman Rules for BSM model using LanHEP package. Sutdents will also become familiar with the High Energy Physics Model Database (HEPMDB) framework and the possibility to explore BSM phenomenology at the HPC cluster. Students will gain hands on experience with MADGRAPH5.

 

Syllabus
