This page documents the use of Pythia to generate ttH (Higgs-strahlung from top/tbar) events.

The code consists primarily of three files, in addition to the .params file which specifies the run parameters. These files are:

  • src/tth.f -- the main Fortran source code,
  • inc/ -- contains variable declarations
  • inc/ -- containing inline functions

The shell script test/linktth is used to compile the code

A run may be initiated in the test area by using the command

./tthsf < [filename].params > [output logfile]

for a given parameters file.

Pythia Code


This file contains variable declarations for the main program and each of the subroutines in tth.f: error counters, event particle counters and particle indices, as well as logical (Boolean) variables used in the main Fortran code.

Params Files

Run information is specified in a .params file. The top line of a .params file should look like:

14000D0 5000 10 500 p p

In this case, 14000 is the centre of mass energy (in GeV), 5000 is the number of events to generate, 10 is the number of events to printout at the start of the run, 500 is the subsequent printout interval, and "p p" is the initial state appropriate to the LHC.
