Distribution format: gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 81(1994)221
Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: IBM3090.
Operating system: MV2.
Word size: 32
Keywords: Particle physics, Elementary, Event simulation, Lorentz structure, Z decay, Magnetic moment, Dipole moment, Heavy leptons, Tau, Monte carlo simulation, Spin polarisation, Spin correlation.
Classification: 11.2.

Nature of problem:
Beyond the standard model Z boson production and decay allows a large number of additional coupling constants like weak magnetic and weak dipole moments. These can be studied by measuring the final spin density of e+e- -> Z(gamma) -> tau+tau-.

Running time:
4 events per second (IBM 168 units), in case of all decay modes populated according to their branching ratio (this time includes some analysis routines) and 64 events per second for tau+/- -> phi+/-nu.
