KIAS School on MadGraph for LHC Physics

Installation of the different software

In order to be efficient during the time of the school, we would like to ask you to install all the different package that you will need during the school. For any trouble you can contact Olivier Mattelaer at the following address: olivier.mattelaer@… .

Windows

The different program are foreseen to run on Linux/Mac. If you don't have Linux or Mac, the best solution is to install Linux (I would advice to install Ubuntu) in dual boot and follow the instructions for Linux

Linux

  1. Basic program
    • perl
    • bash
    • gfortran 4.x (To check the version do gfortran do: gfortran --version) Those programs are by default present in any linux distribution, but just in case you should check that they are all installed in your computer. If they are not, you can use apt-get/yum/... in order to have those.
  2. Madgraph 5
    • python 2.6/2.7
      MadGraph 5 requires python 2.6 or python 2.7. In order to check your version of python, you can type: python --version. Some of the repositories are still on python 2.5. So if updating python via your repository manager didn't work. you can download directly python from the following link: http://www.python.org/download/ and follow instructions.
    • !Madgraph5
      You will find madgraph5 package on the following page: https://launchpad.net/madgraph5. For this program, you just need to untar it. To check if mg5 is correctly install you directly try to run it by doing: ./bin/mg5 If you don't have a valid python version. It will fail directly.
  1. Pythia/pgs/MadAnalysis

I will see this later.

MacOs

  1. Basic program
    • perl
    • bash
      Those programs are by default present in any linux distribution, but just in case you should check that they are all installed in your computer. If they are not, you can use apt-get/yum/... in order to have those.
    • gfortran 4.x (To check the version do gfortran do: gfortran --version) This program is often not included in standard mac version. In order to download it, the easiest is to install the xcode3. https://connect.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MemberSite.woa/wa/getSoftware?bundleID=20414 In order to be able to download it, you will need to a apple develloper account (which is free)
    • gmake
      By default, makefile are not recognize on mac. In order to check, you can do 'make --version'. If it says: -bash: make: command not found then you should install it from the following web-site: http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Developer-Tools/GNU-Make.shtml
  1. !MadGraph5
    • python
      1. The python version of MacOs 10.6 is python 2.6 and is (in 99% of the case) fully working with Madgraph5.
      2. The python version of MacOs 10.7 is python 2.7. We never test this python version with MG5 but it principle it should be fine.
      3. For other version of MacOS, you will need to install python2.7 from the python web site: http://www.python.org/download/
    • Madgraph5
      You will find madgraph5 package on the following page: https://launchpad.net/madgraph5. For this program, you just need to untar it. To check if mg5 is correctly install you directly try to run it by doing: ./bin/mg5 If you don't have a valid python version. It will fail directly.
