Choose your adventure¶
At this stage we will be generating simulated events, including the detector simulation. We can either use:
Parton level with a simple smearing (faster and recommended for the tutorial).
Delphes level simulation (slower but more realistic).
The MadMiner techniques can also work with the full GEANT4 simulation of the events, but this is too heavy and experiment-specific to package with the tool. The Delphes example provides a template for what it would look like in a full experimental context.
Set MadGraph directory¶
In tutorial sections:
The location of the MadGraph installation folder is set. It is listed as:
mg_dir = os.getenv('MG_FOLDER_PATH')
If you install everything yourself, then you would also need to define your own environment variable to point to the MadGraph installation folder within your system.
