Detailed Description

Computing unintegrated gluon by interpolating an input grid

The form of the 2d grid is assumed to be:

 # logx   logkt2    xg
    i1     j1      val1
    ...    ...     ...
    i1     jn      valn
    i2     j1      valn+1
    ...    ...     ...
    i2     jn      valn*m     

and both variables have to grow monotonically.

IMPORTANT: normalization of gluon

In case of problems in gluon evaluation a corresponding error is written to the unintegratedgluon.err file which is always produced by this class. The possible error codes are

  • Err001 : Evaluation outside the domain of the grid.
  • Err002 : Negative value of the gluon.

In each of the above cases the return value of the xg(double logx, double logkt2) function is set to zero.

  • add description of normalization, perhaps remove functions _norm_f/F

filenamename of the input grid file
int_typetype of interpolation; it takes gsl defined values *gsl_interp_linear or *gsl_interp_cspline

Member Function Documentation

vector<pair <double, double> > UnintegratedGluon::grid_limits ( ) const

return grid limits in form of 2d vector of pairs: [[x1min,x1max], [x2min, x2max]]

Min and max values in each dimension can be obtained by using first or second pair data members.

vector< int > UnintegratedGluon::grid_size ( ) const

return size of the grid in each dimension

double UnintegratedGluon::xg ( double  logx,
double  logkt2,
double  logmu2 = 0.0 

value of the unintegrated gluon

logxln(x) where x is the longitudinal momentum fraction of the gluon
logkt2ln(kt^2) where kt is the transverse momentum of the gluon
logmu2ln(^2) where is the factorization scale; this parameter is relevant only for some gluons like e.g. the KShardscale gluon; it also implies that 3d grid is used as input
