Abstract The program TOPAZO is designed for computing Z^0parameters, de-convoluted and QED-dressed cross sections and forward-backward asymmetries of e^+ e^-annihilation into fermion pairs and of Bhabha scattering around the Z^0peak, over both a completely inclusive experimental set-up and a realistic one, i.e. with cuts on acollinearity, energy or invariant mass and angular acceptance of the outgoing fermions. The new version, 2.0, offers the possibility of imposing different experimental cuts ... Title of program: TOPAZ0 2.0 Catalogue Id: ACNT_v2_0 [ADCQ] Nature of problem An accurate theoretical description of e+e- annihilation processes and of Bhabha scattering at the Z0 resonance is necessary in order to compare theoretical cross sections and asymmetries with the experimental ones as measured by the LEP collaborations. In particular a realistic theoretical description, i.e. a description in which the effects of experimental cuts, such as maximum acollinearity, energy or invariant mass and angular acceptance of the outgoing fermions, are taken into account, allo ...
