Using Contur

Contur now has production releases (!), the latest being 1.1.0

Getting Contur

Check out the contur code from our repository at gitlab. The recommended Rivet release is Rivet 3.1.X.

git clone git@gitlab.com:hepcedar/contur.git

git checkout release-1-1-x

This is the latest bugfix of the release branch. If you need to use an older Rivet release you can try using

git checkout rivet-2.7-frozen

but this is pretty old and not recommended for long term use.

Running Contur

The README in the project overview provides some instructions on how to run a Herwig/rivet/contur run on a single parameter parameter point, and also on how to run a simple parameter scan on an example model. We also have a docker-based tutorial produced for various schools (YETI and MCnet) which is available here. To get some information about the available options, see contur --help.

(the tutorial needs updating for the release version)
