Welcome to Rivet!

Rivet is a framework for analysing simulated collider events in HepMC format. As well as providing the infrastructure for such analyses, it provides a set of efficient observable calculators and a large collection of standard analyses from a variety of colliders and experiments. Rivet is designed to be an efficient and simple-to-use system for generator validation, tuning, and regression testing.

  • If you have trouble, please check the TroubleShooting page and then contact the authors at rivet@… (remove the NOSPAM!) if the problems persist.
