Abstract This is the manual and user guide for the Rivet system for the validation and tuning of Monte Carlo event generators. As well as the core Rivet library, this manual describes the usage of the rivet program and the AGILe generator interface library. The depth and level of description is chosen for users of the system, starting with the basics of using validation code written by others, and then covering sufficient details to write new Rivet analyses and calculational components. Title of program: Rivet Catalogue Id: AEPS_v1_0 Nature of problem Experimental measurements from high-energy particle colliders should be defined and stored in a general framework such that it is simple to compare theory predictions to them. Rivet is such a framework, and contains at the same time a large collection of existing measurements. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AEPS_v1_0; Rivet; 10.1016/j.cpc.2013.05.021 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
