Abstract The general-purpose self-adapting Monte Carlo (MC) event generator/simulator mFOAM (standing for mini-FOAM) is a new compact version of the FOAM program, with a slightly limited functionality with respect to its parent version. On the other hand, mFOAM is easier to use for the average user. This new version is fully integrated with the ROOT package, the C++ utility library used widely in the particle physics community. The internal structure of the code is simplified and the very valuable fea... Title of program: mFOAM (mini FOAM), version 1.02. Catalogue Id: ADYX_v1_0 Nature of problem Monte Carlo integration or generation of unweighted (weight equals 1) events with a given probability distribution is a standard problem in many areas of research, ranging from high-energy physics to economics. In any library of general utilities it is highly desirable to include a general-purpose numerical tool (program) with the MC generation algorithm featuring the built-in capability of automatically adjusting the generation procedure to an arbitrary pattern of singularities in the generated ...
