wilson – running and matching beyond the Standard Model

wilson is a Python package for the running and matching of Wilson coefficients of higher-dimensional operators beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. It implements the one-loop running of all dimension-6 operators in the Standard Model Effective Theory (SMEFT), complete tree-level matching onto the weak effective theory (WET) at the electroweak scale, and complete one-loop running of all dimension-6 WET operators in QCD and QED. It uses the Wilson coefficient exchange format (WCxf) for representing Wilson coefficient values and can be easily interfaced with all codes supporting this standard.


The package requires Python version 3.5 or above. It can be installed with

python3 -m pip install wilson


A brief user manual can be found in the paper cited below. More information can be found on the project web site.
