Nature of problem:
To compute some of the observables of supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories such as supersymmetric action, Polyakov/Wilson loops, scalar eigenvalues and Pfaffian phases.

Solution method:
We use the Rational Hybrid Monte Carlo algorithm followed by a Leapfrog evolution and a Metroplois test. The input parameters of the model are read in from a parameter file.

This code applies only to supersymmetric gauge theories with extended supersymmetry, which undergo the process of maximal twisting. (See Section 2 of the manuscript for details.)

Running time:
From a few minutes to several hours depending on the amount of statistics needed.
