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: 4. Deciphering the nature of the Higgs sector”.

  • You can find the current draft at WebSVN.
  • SC, WG and subgroup conveners should have read&write access privileges for above link (if not please let SC know).
  • E-group: lhc-higgs members have read access privilege for above link.

Red led Contents for CERN Report 4

Aqua led Code Repository (SVN at CERN)

Blue led LaTeX Information

Source files

  • LaTeX source files which describe each section should be located at the top directory under cernrep4/trunk/.
  • All source files of each section should be placed under separate directory, and the directory name should be the individual group name, ex.WG1/ggF, ....
  • ALL figures should be placed under the subdirectories like cernrep4/trunk/WG1/ggF/Figures/*.eps
  • Naming should be like WG1_ggF_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 PDF format only as pdflatex will be used for CERN Report 4.
  • ALL figures should have "LHC Higgs XS WG 2016" logo at the top-right corner.

  • 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 LHCHiggsStyle.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

Green led References (BibTeX)

  • References should be listed in BibTeX format.
  • To get the BibTeX, just click "BibTeX" output format in INSPIRE.
  • 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.
