    51 === How to familiarize with MadGraph ===
    52 
    53 All exercises proposed can be "solved" or checked with MadGraph / MadEvent. Here is how to familiarize with the code.
    54 
    55    * Logon to the MadGraph web site and register.
    56 
    57    * Familiarize with the code by generating a few processes in QED and QCD trying to guess which diagrams appear. What is the minimum number of jets have to be asked for in $e^+e^-$ collisions so that the triple gauge vertex appear?
    58 
    59    * Look at the new physics models and check the particle and interactions content.
    60 
    61    * Generate events for a few selected processes and look at the plots:
    62       * ttbar production with decays: pp>tt~>bb~mu+e-ve~vm
    63       * VV production: pp>VV> leptons, with V=Z,W.
    64       * Single top + Higgs: pp>tHj (QCD=0, QED=3, j=gudsc,p=gudscb). Show that there is a large negative interference between the diagrams
