Nature of problem:
Heavy Majorana neutrinos are predicted by extended versions of the standard model of electroweak interactions in particle physics. They can be produced in deep inelastic electron-proton scattering via lepton mixing or exchange of 'light' right-handed W-bosons (e+-p -> NX) and they decay into a lepton and a weak boson (N -> e+-W-+ or nu Z0).

Solution method:
The process is factorized into parts which can be treated separately and simulated with Monte Carlo methods. The basic electroweak process is given by leading order matrix elements calculated using the narrow-width approximation for the Majorana neutrino propagator. QCD radiation is treated using initial and final state leading logQ**2 parton showers. Hadronization is performed using the Lund string model, resulting in a complete final state of observable particles. CERNLIB packlib, mathlib and kernlib are used. LEPTO 6.5 is required.

The right-handed W must have lower mass than the Majorana neutrino.

Running time:
5-50 events per second on a DEC AlphaStation 200 depending on process simulated and completeness of simulation.
