Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


First released in 2010, the RIVET library forms an important repository for analysis code, facilitating comparisons between measurements of the final state in particle collisions and theoretical calculations of those final states. We give an overview of RIVET’s current design and implementation, its uptake for analysis preservation and physics results, and summarise recent developments including propagation of MC systematic-uncertainty weights, heavy-ion and ep physics, and systems for detector emulation. In addition, we provide a short user guide that supplements and updates the RIVET user manual.
