Authors: J. Hilgart, R. Kleiss, F. Le Diberder
Program title: FERMISV
Catalogue identifier: ACLR_v1_0
Distribution format: gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 75(1993)191
Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: DECstation 5200.
Operating system: ULTRIX.
RAM: 1300K words
Word size: 32
Peripherals: disc.
Keywords: Particle physics, Elementary, Multichannel monte carlo, Event simulation, Electroweak, Multiperipheral, Bremsstrahlung, Conversion, Annilhilation, Feynman diagrams, Unitary algorithm, Matrix element.
Classification: 11.2.

Nature of problem:
Cross section and event generator for e+e- -> ffbarFFbar

Solution method:
Monte Carlo integration with importance sampling.

Only the case of the four final-state fermions being detected (unless they are neutrinos) is considered in the present work.

Unusual features:
REAL*8 and COMPLEX*16 declarations used.

Running time:
Without final-state radiation, the generation of 100 unweighted eemumu events takes 2 minutes on a DECstation 5200.
