Abstract A study of the production and the decay of scalar and vector leptoquarks at high-energy e^+ e^-colliders is presented. All tree-order contributions to single leptoquark production have been calculated and incorporated in the Monte Carlo event generator ERATO-LQ. Title of program: ERATO-LQ Catalogue Id: ADKD_v1_0 Nature of problem Leptoquark states emerge in several theoretical frameworks, including the Pati-Salam model, the MSSM, and composite models of quarks and leptons. Leptoquark states coupled to the first generation leptons and quarks can be studied in e+e- colliders. The dominant mode, for leptoquark masses close to the energy threshold, is the single leptoquark production. Leptoquarks can be studied by selecting events with leptons and jets and by investigating the invariant mass distribution of the lepton plus j ...
