Recola & Recola2

Recola releases

Recola 1.4.0 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 releases

The Recola2 library (version 2.2.0) extends these features by:

  • Additional model files in extended Higgs-sectors
  • Complementary model files formulated 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
