Abstract ERATO is a Monte Carlo event generator describing four-fermion production at LEP2 and beyond. All tree-order processes leading to four fermions are included, taking into account all relevant QCD contributions. QED higher order corrections are introduced via a structure function approach, whereas weak corrections related to fermion loops are also included. Special attention has been paid to studying the trilinear gauge couplings, and all possible contributions, including the CP_violating ones,... Title of program: ERATO Catalogue Id: ADFA_v1_0 Nature of problem A very important fraction of the events produced at high-energy e+e- collisions corresponds to four-fermion final states. Important physical issues, like the measurement of the mass of the W boson and the study of the trilinear gauge couplings (TGC), are based on the analysis of these four-fermion final states. Other production processes, like associated Higgs production or R-parity violating SUSY particle production, lead also to the same final states. It is therefore indispensable to have a ra ...
