Abstract We have written a Fortran program BCVEGPY, which is an event generator for the hadronic production of the B_cmeson through the dominant hard subprocess gg→B_c (B_c *)+b+c̄. To achieve a compact program, we have written the amplitude of the subprocess with the particle helicity technique and made it as symmetric as possible, by decomposing the gluon self couplings and then applying the symmetries. To check the program, various cross sections of the subprocess have been computed numerically a...
