Abstract PHANTOM is a tree level Monte Carlo for six parton final states at proton-proton, proton-antiproton and electron-positron colliders at O (α_(E M)^6 ) and O (α_(E M)^4α_S ^2 ) including possible interferences between the two sets of diagrams. This comprehends all purely electroweak contributions as well as all contributions with one virtual or two external gluons. It can generate unweighted events for any set of processes and it is interfaced to parton shower and hadronization packages v... Title of program: PHANTOM (V. 1.0) Catalogue Id: AECE_v1_0 Nature of problem Six fermion final state processes have become important with the increase of collider energies and are essential for the study of top, higgs and electroweak symmetry breaking physics at high energy colliders. Since thousands of Feynman diagrams contribute in a single process and events corresponding to hundreds of different final states need to be generated, a fast and stable calculation is needed.
