Recommendation (LHCXSWG-INT-2017-001); Tool

Working on a public note with the new recommendation with WG2


Summer 2021

It is a set of per-event weights, one for each source of uncertainty, to plug&play using the simplified/template cross section setup. Implemented everything in MINLO NNLOPS, being this the reference and the most up to date generator.

Re-weighting Powheg to NNLOPS is mandatory , since the uncertainties have been calculated with a given perturbative order, and if it is not matched with the generator, the result may be inconsistent.

Recent progress: High-Pt results from WG1 (see next line) incorporated+ agreement reached on NP definition between ATLAS, CMS and theory community.

Old STXS: done

New STXS 1.2: In progress (finalizing the numbers)

VBF Higher-order corrections [potentially public note] 2021 A comparative study of Higgs boson production from vector-boson fusion report -- to be discussed at the next general meeting In progress

VH V+hf modeling for VH(bb) [potentially public note] 2021 Project ongoing for ATLAS and CMS comparisons: MC comparisons across several V+hf MC tools targeting VH(bb) phase space, guidelines for theory uncertainties on V+hf predictions In progress, see here
