Nature of problem:
Experimental measurements from high-energy particle colliders should be defined and stored in a general framework such that it is simple to compare theory predictions to them. Rivet is such a framework, and contains at the same time a large collection of existing measurements.
Rivet is based on HepMC events, a standardised output format provided by many theory simulation tools. Events are processed by Rivet to generate histograms for the requested list of analyses, incorporating all experimental phase space cuts and histogram definitions.
Cannot calculate statistical errors for correlated events as they appear in NLO calculations.
It is possible for the user to implement and use their own custom analysis as a module without having to modify the main Rivet code/installation.
Depends on the number and complexity of analyses being applied, but typically a few hundred events per second.
