Getting Started with H1jet

This brief guide will allow you to quickly get started with H1jet.


To compile H1jet:


H1jet requires the CHAPLIN library. It may be necessary to explicitly state the path to the library files with:

./configure LDFLAGS=-L/path/to/chaplin/lib

To compile with a custom user interface:

./configure USERFILE=/path/to/custom/user_interface.f90

See the User's Manual for more information on the implementation of a custom user interface.

To install in a specific location:

./configure --prefix=/path/to/installation
make install

By default the prefix is set to the H1jet main directory.


To run H1jet from the main directory:


H1jet will output a brief summary of the settings used along with the Born cross section, followed by the differential cross-section in the transverse momentum and the integrated cross section with a lower bound in pT for each pT bin.

To get a complete list of options for H1jet:

./bin/h1jet --help

See the User's Manual for more details on all options.

The output from H1jet can be easily plotted with the provided helper script. Simply pipe the output from H1jet to the script:

./bin/h1jet | python bin/PlotH1jet.py

This will produce the following plot for default options:
