Single Top Polarization for MadGraph s-channel sample

Line: 123 to 123

For an incoming beam of 200 GeV and a minimum PT of 100 GeV for the bottom quark, we get D = 0.90 +/- 0.02. So it can be assumed that Madevent doesn't give the expected 100 % polarization because it makes approximations (e.g. the bottom quark being massless).
