Abstract Together with the vector and axial vector couplings, the general Lorentz structure of leptonic Z decays, (e^+ e^- →Z→τ^+ τ^- ), allows various additional types of interaction. In the present study a Monte Carlo generator, SCOT, is developed which simulates the general Lorentz structure of Z boson production and decay, and ultimately the τ decay. The program uses spin amplitudes to take the τ polarisation and the spin correlation into account and may be used for simulations at LEP and SLC. Title of program: SCOT VERSION 1.0 Catalogue Id: ACTJ_v1_0 Nature of problem Beyond the standard model Z boson production and decay allows a large number of additional coupling constants like weak magnetic and weak dipole moments. These can be studied by measuring the final spin density of e+e- -> Z(gamma) -> tau+tau-.
