Abstract A fully massive Monte Carlo program to compute all four-fermion processes in e^+ e^-collisions, including Higgs boson production, is presented. Leading higher order effects are discussed and included. Title of program: NEXTCALIBUR Catalogue Id: ADNS_v1_0 Nature of problem Four-fermion production is and will be investigated at e+e- colliders in a wide range of energies. Fermion masses have to be included when studying Higgs boson production and processes with forward scattered electrons. A Monte Carlo program being able to take into account both signal and background electroweak diagrams for four-fermion processes, without neglecting fermion masses, is therefore required. Higher order effects, such as the QED radiation evaluated at the proper scale, have also to b ...
