Abstract mcsanc is a Monte Carlo tool based on the SANC (Support for Analytic and Numeric Calculations for experiments at colliders) modules for higher order calculations in hadron collider physics. It allows to evaluate NLO QCD and EW cross sections for Drell–Yan processes (inclusive), associated Higgs and gauge boson production and single-top quark production in s - and t -channels. The paper contains theoretical description of the SANC approach, numerical validations and manual. Title of program: mcsanc-v1.01 Catalogue Id: AEPO_v1_0 Nature of problem Theoretical calculations at next-to-leading order in perturbation theory allow the computation of higher precision amplitudes for Standard Model processes and decays, provided proper treatments of UV divergences and IR singularities are performed.
