Abstract After a brief review of the electroweak radiative corrections to gauge-boson self-energies, otherwise known as the direct and oblique corrections, a tool for calculation of the oblique parameters is presented. This tool, named OPUCEM, brings together formulas from multiple physics models and provides an error-checking machinery to improve reliability of numerical results. It also sets a novel example for an “open-formula” concept, which is an attempt to improve the reliability and reproducibi... Title of program: OPUCEM (library) Catalogue Id: AEIW_v1_0 Nature of problem The calculation of Electroweak Precision variables for each point of the parameter space of a given beyond the Standard Model theory is tedious and error prone. The available formulas in the literature sometimes contain typos and most of the time they are valid only under some specific conditions, not suitable for quick comparison across different studies nor direct implementation on a computer. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AEIW_v1_0; OPUCEM (library); 10.1016/j.cpc.2011.04.018 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
