Particle physics phenomenology

SARAH is a Mathematica package optimized for the fast and exhaustive analysis of
supersymmetric models. It has been designed to handle every N = 1 SUSY theory with an
arbitrary direct product of SU (n) and/or U (1)
factors as gauge group. The chiral superfields can transform under arbitrary,
irreducible representations with regard to this gauge group, and all possible
renormalizable...

Event generators and detector simulators

Talk

In this talk, I would like to present FeynRules, a Mathematica® package that allows
the calculation of Feynman rules in momentum space for any quantum field theory
physics model, starting from the model Lagrangian. The Feynman rules calculated by
the code can then be used to implement the new physics model into other existing
tools, such as Monte Carlo generators, via a set of dedicated...

In this presentation we release the new version 2.1 of the Monte Carlo event
generator WHIZARD for high-energy physics collider experiment simulations. After
reviewing the status of the new development line 2.x, we discuss news and
improvements coming with the first major revision 2.1. These include the analytic
parton shower for initial and final state radiation, developments in the...

We describe recent extensions of the program SPheno including flavour aspects,
CP-phases, R-parity violation and low energy observables. In case of flavour mixing
all masses of supersymmetric particles are calculated including the complete flavour
structure and all possible CP-phases at the 1-loop level. We give details on
implemented seesaw models, low energy observables and the...

We present a Fortran code which calculates the production cross section for the
(lightest) Higgs boson in the SM and MSSM resulting from gluon fusion and
bottom-quark annihilation.
Differential and total cross sections are obtained at NLO in gluon fusion, taking
into account the full contribution from the third generation of quarks and squarks in
the MSSM. Inclusive weighted results up to...

We present the current status of the public Fortran code HiggsBounds. The program
confronts arbitrary Higgs sectors with the exclusion limits from direct Higgs searches at
LEP, Tevatron and the LHC. We demonstrate a recent improvement of the model
likeness criteria, which allows in particular Higgs searches combining different channels
to be applied to a wider class of models....

The practical introduction into CalcHEP package and High Energy Physics Model
database will be given together with the short tutorial.
CalcHEP is a powerful tool for theoretical, phenomenological and experimental studies
in High Energy Physics (HEP). CalcHEP allows users to automate the calculations
and studies starting from the introduction of any user-defined model and ending by
the...

In this talk, I will give an overview of the main properties and functionalities of
the CLUMPY code. CLUMPY performs a semi-analytical calculation of the γ-ray flux
astrophysical J-factor from dark matter annihilation/decay in the Galaxy, including
dark matter substructures. The code can be used in three modes: i) to draw skymaps
from the Galactic smooth component and/or the substructure...

In this talk I will demonstrate how to use the AMIDAS package online for both
Monte-Carlo simulations and analyzing (pseudo)data sets to extract properties of halo
WIMPs, e.g., the mass and the (ratios between the) spin-independent and
spin-dependent couplings/cross sections on nucleons. In order to show the
model-independence of the AMIDAS package, a comparison between the...

The dark matter particle is currently being searched for with several observational
channels, including the LHC and direct detection experiments. These experiments
already place constraints on a number of theoretical WIMP models, including
weak-scale supersymmetry (SUSY). In this talk, I will present constraints on the
parameters of the constrained Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model...

I will discuss the new neutrino telescope likelihood routines in DarkSUSY. These are
based on a fast method for including event-level IceCube data in likelihood
calculations, and are optimised for global-fit type parameter explorations of
theories for new physics. The likelihood construction is not at all specific to
SUSY, and includes both angular and spectral information about neutrino...

Now that predictions of supersymmetric models can finally be compared to LHC data, it
is important to have a means of quickly evaluating signal rates for parameter points
during scans without having to generate and analyze full Monte Carlo simulations. We
have written C++ code (LHC-FASER) which quickly estimates the event rates that
would be seen at LHC, taking into account production...

We present MadAnalysis 5, a new framework for phenomenological inves-
tigations at particle colliders. Based on a C++ kernel, this program allows
to efficiently perform, in a straightforward and user-friendly fashion, sophis-
ticated physics analyses of event files such as those generated by a large class
of Monte Carlo event generators. MadAnalysis 5 comes with two modes
of running. The...

Contrarily to most of the previous colliders, the initial state at the LHC is charge
asymmetric. This property has been measured on the W process by the ATLAS and the CMS
collaborations using their 2010 datasets.
We propose a new method to use the global charge asymmetry of a production process
to constrain the mass of its final state.
We'll illustrate this method using particle level...

We perform global fits to the parameters of the Constrained
Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (CMSSM) and to a variant with
non-universal Higgs masses (NUHM1), taking into account the current
LHC exclusions from searches in jets plus missing transverse energy
signatures with about 5/fb integrated luminosity. We include
the recent LHCb upper bound on the branching...

Tutorial

This serves as a tutorial for the WHIZARD Monte Carlo multi-purpose event generator
for high-energy physics. It will be shown how to install the package, how to run the
program, how to generate processes, integrate them, how to set up general cuts, how
to shower and hadronize events and how to use the internal graphics analysis tool.
