Abstract We present an algorithm for automatic Feynman diagram (FD) generation. Derived directly from the definition formula of an FD, the algorithm features first of all a clear concept. Also, it could naturally generate the symmetry factor for each FD. As it is free of complex and tricky operations commonly seen in other FD generation software, the code for this algorithm should always be easy to write. We provide such an implementation in C. This C program is very small, but it is fast and powerful...
