Use the buttons of the left sidebar to go directly to the
table download pages. Tables including "cv21" in their name
have been produced with the older versions NLOjet++ 2.0.1
in the deprecated fastNLO v1.4 format and have been converted
to the new fastNLO format v2.1.
The elementary pieces in fastNLO are called "scenarios".
One scenario comprises the code to generate the interpolation table
for an observable with input from external programs like NLOJet++,
the resulting table itself, and the code to evaluate it under
various assumptions on PDFs, scales, etc. Usually, one such
scenario corresponds exactly to one published measurement;
depending on the type and amount of published data, however, multiple tables
might be necessary. Conceptually, our scheme is identical to the way
RIVET provides data
comparisons to predictions of MC event generators. Therefore we adopted
the same indexing approach and label fastNLO tables for one scenario with the
record number of the corresponding publication in the inSPIRE
(formerly SPIRES) database in addition to our own numbering scheme.
Thus, the inSPIRE record number ties together the measurement publication in inSPIRE,
the data tables in the HepData database,
comparisons to MC event generators via RIVET, and our interpolation tables.
Tables in old format v1.4 (deprecated)
Formerly with fastNLO version 1.4, it was necessary not only to have one table, but
also a dedicated piece of code for each such table in addition to common software
in order to read and evaluate this table. This was caused by two limitations of the
Fortran programming language: the lack of dynamic memory allocation and
the lacking support for multiple instances of complex data types. Version 1.4
tables are therefore not available separately here, but only from the
v1.4 code page together with the corresponding
