Recola & Recola2

Recola releases

Recola 1.4.4 features:

  • LO and NLO helicity and color amplitudes

  • LO and NLO amplitudes squared amplitudes, optionally polarized

  • LO and NLO colour-correlated squared amplitudes for dipole subtraction

  • LO spin-correlated squared amplitudes for dipole subtraction

  • Dimreg for UV and IR singularities, optionally mass regularization (collinear)

  • Possibility for the selection of factorizable corrections in the pole approximation

  • \(\alpha_0\), \(\alpha_\mathrm{Z}\), \(G_\mathrm{F}\) schemes for the electromagnetic coupling constant \(\alpha\)

  • Fixed and running \(N_f\) flavour scheme for strong coupling constant \(\alpha_s\)

  • Complex-mass scheme for unstable particles

  • Fortran95 and C++ interfaces exemplified with demo files

Recola2 2.2.4 extends these features by:

  • Additional model files in extended Higgs-sectors

  • Complementary model files in the Background-Field Method

  • An intuitive Python interface with a built-in documentation

  • Memory optimzations for crossing related processes

  • LO and NLO spin-(colour-) correlated squared amplitudes
