Manuscript Title: FeynEdit - a tool for drawing Feynman diagrams
Authors: T. Hahn, P. Lang
Program title: FeynEdit
Catalogue identifier: AEBX_v1_0
Distribution format: tar.gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 179(2008)931
Programming language: Java.
Computer: All Java-capable platforms.
Operating system: Linux, Mac OS, Windows.
RAM: 1 - 2 MBytes
Keywords: Feynman diagrams, LaTeX representation, graphical editing.
PACS: 01.50.hv.
Classification: 4.4.

Nature of problem:
Graphical editing of Feynman diagrams.

Solution method:
The user copy-and-pastes the LaTeX code of the Feynman diagram into the editor, clicks a button to visualize the diagram, modifies it using the mouse, and finally copy-and-pastes it back into the text.

Propagators are presently drawn only as straight lines. This is largely for performance reasons and may be added in a future version. It is not a serious deficit because that information can easily be added in the LaTeX code.

Unusual features:
Uses FeynArts' LaTeX representation for input and output

Running time:
