    9090Note that for these exercises you need to download the [http://madgraph.hep.uiuc.edu/Downloads/MG_ME_V4.4.56.tar.gz MadGraph/MadEvent package] (or [https://launchpad.net/madgraph5 MadGraph 5 package]) and work locally. You need a Fortran compiler (and for !MadGraph 5, Python v. 2.6 or 2.7).
    9191=== For !FeynRules download and information, see the [http://feynrules.phys.ucl.ac.be/ FeynRules wiki] ===

    9393   * Determine most relevant Standard Model backgrounds with identical final states (&ldquo;non-reducible&rdquo;). If not too complicated, generate backgrounds with cuts determined from signal distributions.
    9494   * Which other (&ldquo;reducible&rdquo;) backgrounds might be important?
