    2121==== Do I have to perform selection on the events? ====
    2222
    23 <em> **g>Question from Andre Sznajder**[[br]] The matrix element method uses just outgoing the hard scattering partons/leptons. As a concrete example let's take the Higgs to WW semi-leptonic mode H->WW->(mu nu)(qq'). As I am using CMS reconstructed event as an input, do I have to make a pre-selection of the reconstructed muons, jets and missing energy that corresponds to the parton level objects ? Or I can put in the LHCO all reconstructed jets, and leptons and it will somehow choose the correct ones ? </em>

    2525MadWeight (MW) can only process event with the correct number of reconstructed events. So MW will first reject all the "wrong" events. So in practise, if you have two muons or three jet for an event, this one will not be accepted.

    7780$> ./bin/newprocess[[br]] Indeed the proc_card.dat must be the same between this moment and the time where you launch madweight analyzer.
