Running Contur¶

Contur is really in a production release, but it is open source and you are welcome to have a play with it.

Check out the contur code from svn .

The best place to start is the test script (in directory “test”) which is part of the installation, here_ .

Test example¶

If you want to just try out Contur without having to run Herwig or Rivet, you can look at this yoda file. This is the result of a run for $$M_{Z^\prime} = 500$$ GeV, $$M_\chi = 400$$ GeV looking at 7 TeV measurements involving charged leptons. If you run CLTestSingle on it, and then contur-mkhtml, you should be able to generate these plots

Some pre-generated HepMC events from Herwig, which can be run through Rivet and then used by Contur, can be downloaded here.
