We present SimpleBounce, a C++ package for finding the bounce solution for the false vacuum decay. This package is based on a flow equation which is proposed by the author R. Sato (2020) and solves Coleman–Glaser–Martin’s reduced problem (S. R. Coleman et al. 1978): the minimization problem of the kinetic energy while fixing the potential energy. The bounce configuration is obtained by a scale transformation of the solution of this problem. For models with 1–8 scalar field(s), the bounce action can be calculated with O(0.1) % accuracy in O(0.1) s. This package is available at
