Implementation of supersymmetric processes in the HERWIG event generator

Moretti, S., Odagiri, K., Richardson, P., Seymour, M.H. and Webber, B.R. (2002) Implementation of supersymmetric processes in the HERWIG event generator Journal of High Energy Physics, 204, (2002), 028-058. (doi:10.1088/1126-6708/2002/04/028).

Record type: Article


We describe the implementation of supersymmetric processes in the HERWIG Monte Carlo event generator. We define relevant parameter and mixing conventions and list the hard scattering matrix elements. Our implementation is based on the Minimum Supersymmetric Standard Model, with the option of R-parity violation. The sparticle spectrum is completely general. Both hadron-hadron and lepton-lepton collisions are covered. This article supplements a separate publication in which the general features of HERWIG 6.2 are described, and updates the treatment of supersymmetry to version 6.4.
