DownloadsSince the aMCfast inteface provides a bridge between MadGraph5_aMC@NLO and APPLgrid, the packages to be downloaded and installed are the following:
Given that MadGraph5_aMC@NLO requires to be used with gfortran v4.6 or higher, we recommend this compiler (or an equivalent one) to be adopted in the installation of all codes (see here for an example of how to set gfortran 4.7.0 as the default compiler on a CERN SLC6 or SLC5 machine).
The installation procedure for APPLgrid and aMCfast is the standard one. Once you have downloaded the zipped souces from the links above, you just do:
tar xfvz applgrid-1.4.70.tgz
tar xfvz amcfast-1.3.0.tgz
aMCfast and APPLgrid can be downloaded also via svn using the following commands: svn co http://applgrid.hepforge.org/svn/amcfast/tags/amcfast-01-03-00 amcfast-01-03-00 and: svn co http://applgrid.hepforge.org/svn/applgrid/tags/applgrid-01-04-70 applgrid-01-04-07
There are a few more external codes that need to be previously installed in order to successfully carry out the installation procedure discribed above. They are:
