Lightweight NLO BSM cross-sections, to go

## Project description

Salami: lightweight BSM NLO cross-sections, to go

Absolute cross-sections for BSM processes are an essential component, along with analysis acceptances & efficiencies and collider luminosities, of signal event-yield predictions in particle collider experiments. Leading-order (LO) cross-sections can be calculated quickly, but next-to-LO ones are hundreds of times slower to calculate: too slow for use in large-scale parameter scan and fitting codes. Salami solves this problem by rapid prediction of pre-trained NLO cross-sections as functions of the SUSY/BSM spectrum.

TODO:
• More careful treatment of negative masses (implies phases, not simply a modulus)
