EasyScan_HEP: A tool for connecting programs to scan the parameter space of physics models

Published: 4 December 2023| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/4fcb77dxfw.1


We present an application, EasyScan_HEP, for connecting programs to scan the parameter space of High Energy Physics (HEP) models using various sampling algorithms. We develop EasyScan_HEP according to the principle of flexibility and usability. EasyScan_HEP allows us to connect different programs that calculate physical observables, and apply constraints by one human-readable configuration file. All programs executed through command lines can be connected to EasyScan_HEP by setting input and output parameters of the programs. The current version offers the sampling algorithms of Random, Grid, Markov chain Monte Carlo and MultiNest. We also implement features such as resume function, parallelization, post-processing, and quick analysis.
