Abstract TWOGEN samples the transverse-transverse luminosity function for real and virtual photons, then weights events with any user-supplied cross section σ_(TT)(γγ → X) in a "hit or miss" sampling, using a simple method to avoid the singularity at the minimum electron angle θ{symbol}_(min)=0. Events within defined kinematic limits are accepted and the corresponding cross section is estimated, together with the effective luminosity of the run. Functions implemented for σ_(TT)include the produ... Title of program: TWOGEN Catalogue Id: ACTE_v1_0 Nature of problem Generation of the two-photon flux in e+e- colliding beam accelerators.
