CompHEP-4.4.90. Release notes

ATTENTION! THE VERSION 4.4.90 IS A TEST RELEASE! STILL NOT FOR SERIOUS PHYSICS RESEARCH!

Incompatibilities.

  • A new format of the initial state in session.dat.
  • ComHEP has two regimes of compilation, with or without LHAPDF. CompHEP with LHAPDF has incompatible beam strfun tables. So, these tables will be empty if a user tries to use old files in the new version. No problems in ComHEP without LHAPDf.

Fixed bugs.

  • Several bugs in generation of session.dat with s_comphep
  • Wrong values of some commands in tag of the event default file format.

Changes.

  • Symbolic part:
    • All PDFs in the beam/strfun tables have prefix PDF (or LHA, if LHAPDF is interfaced)
    • Proper generation of session.dat in s_comphep.
    • Lots of internal re-arrangements (to symplify the program structure).
  • Numerical part:
    • A new improved version of num_batch.pl
    • Diagram viewing is available in n_comphep (a new option in the main menu)
    • Re-arranged menu “Initial State”. Beam particle and PDF are separated.
    • The LHA event file format has been added, still with no extra HepML tags.
  • Common:
    • Now CompHEP is compatible with gcc-4.x
    • A new version of make_tab. Now it can processes files with several subprocesses.
    • CompHEP can be compiled in two different modes: with OR without LHAPDF.
    • Several options to ./configure have been added: –with-gcc4, –with-lhapdf, –debug, –help
  • Documentation
    • New NUM_BATCH-HOWTO
    • LHAPDF_in_CompHEP-HOWTO

TODO

  • Mixing of several event files in LHAef.
  • Check LHAPDF-compatible session.dat in internal-PDF-compatible n_comphep (and vice versa)
  • Help files to the new “Initial state” menu
