Abstract Because of their narrow width, τ decays can be well separated from their production process. Only spin degrees of freedom connect these two parts of the physics process of interest for high energy collision experiments. In the following, we present a Monte Carlo algorithm which is based on that property. The interface supplements events generated by other programs, with τ decays. Effects of spin, including transverse degrees of freedom, genuine weak corrections or of new physics may be taken ... Title of program: TAUOLA++, versions 1.0.2, 1.0.3, 1.0.4, 1.0.5, 1.0.6 Catalogue Id: AELH_v1_0 Nature of problem The code of Monte Carlo generators often has to be tuned to the needs of large HEP Collaborations and experiments. In particular Τ lepton decays need to be added (or modified) to the previously generated (or measured) events encapsulated in an event record. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AELH_v1_0; TAUOLA++, versions 1.0.2, 1.0.3, 1.0.4, 1.0.5, 1.0.6; 10.1016/j.cpc.2011.12.009 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
