  • Testing unitarity using VBFNL0
  • Indicates that values as low at FT1 ~10-15 GeV-4 can violate unitarity
  • However violation is for events at the absolute kinematic limits which are almost zero probability.
  • More problematic values or 1/3 the beam energy indicate 10-13 GeV-4 or 0.1 TeV-4.
  • Though using values of 10-11 GeV-4 populate the phase space better unitarity violation may be an issue.
  • May want to try lower values.
