Program title: KORALW 1.02 Catalogue ID: ADCT_v1_0 Abstract The Monte Carlo program KORALW version 1.02 for W-pair production is presented. Its main features are: multiple initial state photonic radiation with finite transverse photon momenta generated according to the Yennie-Frautschi-Suura Monte Carlo technique and massive kinematics for all final particles. Matrix element features second-order leading-logarithmic initial-state QED corrections. The dedicated semi-analytical program KORWAN, with structure-function based leading-logarithmic initial-state ... Nature of problem The W pair production and decay will be used as an important data point for precise tests of the standard electroweak theory at LEP2 and higher energies. The effects due to QED bremsstrahlung and apparatus efficiency have to be subtracted from the data. The program includes also effects of the secondary decays, i.e. hadronization of quarks and tau lepton decays.
