Instruction for CERN Yellow Report "Handbook of LHC Higgs Cross Sections”

Help This is the instruction for writing the CERN Yellow Report "Handbook of LHC Higgs Cross Sections: 3 Higgs Properties”.

  • You can find the current draft at WebSVN.
  • E-group: lhc-higgs-contact members have read&write access privileges for above link.
  • E-group: lhc-higgs members have read access privilege for above link.(disabled temporarily)

Red led Contents for CERN Report 3

Aqua led Code Repository (SVN at CERN)

  • Members of E-group: lhc-higgs-contact have read&write access for above link and SVN checkout privilege.
  • Members of E-group: lhc-higgs have read access to WebSVN Web Interface (disabled temporarily).

Blue led LaTeX Information

Source files

  • LaTeX source files which describe each section should be located at the top directory under cernrep/trunk.
  • To get started: download two files: YRHXS3_Section.tar.gz and allsty.tar.gz. The first one contains the basic LaTeX files, the second one contains all .sty, .cls, .bst files.
  • Above and in the following "Section" should always be replaced by the individual group name, ggF, MSSM, BR, ....
  • ALL figures should be placed under the subdirectories like cernrep/trunk/YRHXS_Section/*.eps
  • Naming should be like YRHXS_Section_fig#.eps where # is the Figure number.
  • Thus figure citation inside your LaTeX should be like,

LaTeX style

LaTeX compilation

  • On Linux, you can compile all LaTeX files by simply typing make. It could be a good idea to cleanup before with make clean.
  • Before you commit your changes to SVN, make sure that there are no LaTeX compilation errors.

FAQ: I have my personalized macros. Where should I put on SVN?

  • ALL \usepackage{xxx} should be declared in preamble inside the main LaTeX YRHXS.tex.
  • ALL \newcommand should be merged into our style file lhchiggs.sty.

Orange led Feynman Diagrams

  • Use Axodraw for Feynman diagrams consistently and everywhere!
  • Here is the sample LaTeX code and output PDF file.
  • Colours are for illustration only, please use black-and-white diagrams by default!
  • Please use shorthands for particle names and parameters as specified in the style files of the Yellow Report.

Orange led Figures (ROOT)

  • It is strongly encouraged to create figures with ROOT for eps format only.

  • ROOT macro files for LHC Higgs XS WG is
  • Please read the README file in the macro package.

  1. LHCHiggsStyle.C: it contains the actual style definition. You can call it from any macro by doing something like:
  2. rootlogon.C: automatically loads the LHCHIGGS style. Put in your working directory together with StyleLHCHiggs.C, and you'll get the LHCHIGGS style loaded by default any time you launch ROOT in that directory.
  3. LHCHiggsUtils.C: a useful utility package, containing several function definitions, like the one to generate the LHCHIGGS label (ex. LHCHIGGS_LABEL(0.98,0.725);). You can load it in you plotting macro by doing:
  4. LHCHiggsExample.C will produce an example plot. Just copy them in the directory with all the other style and utility files, and execute the macro. Enter root and do:
         .x LHCHiggsExample.C

FAQ: Axis label and numbers overlap. How can I change the position of the labels ?

  • Change the label offset values in LHCHiggsStyle.C

     // set label offsets 

FAQ: I am a fan of TopDrawer. Howe I can create the ROOT figure?

  • Ask your experimental colleagues to create the ROOT figure by giving the XS data sets.
  • Here is one example of ROOT macro which converts TopDrawer file into ROOT.
  1. TopDrawer to ROOT conversion script
  2. tdr2root.C: TopDrawer to ROOT conversion source file
  • where Input: filename.tdr and Output: filename.root .

    source filename

Yellow led Tables

  • Only ONE best estimate (N)NLO table after PDF4LHC recipe in the main text.
  • ALL other tables like, LO/NLO numbers, each MSTW/CTEQ/NNPDF NLO table go into Appendix.
  • Table contents should look like this.

MH [GeV] σ [pb] QCD scale uncertainty PDF+αs error Total error
120 1.234 +1.0% +2.0% +2.2%
    -2.0% -2.0% -2.8%

Green led References (BibTeX)

  • References should be listed in BibTeX format.
  • To get the BibTeX, just click "BibTeX" output format in INSPIRE or SPIRES.
  • Please do not modify the Article label.
  • Please make sure that there are duplications which cause the LaTeX errors.
  • There is only ONE bib file, YRHXS.bib. Please do not create separate bib file.
