Abstract We present the Monte Carlo event generator KK version 4.13 for precision predictions of the Electroweak Standard Model for the process e^+ e^-→ f f̄ + ny, f = μ, τ, d, u, s, c, b, at centre-of-mass energies from τ lepton threshold to 1 TeV, that is for LEP, SLC, future Linear Colliders, b, c, τ-factories, etc. Effects due to photon emission from initial beams and outgoing fermions are calculated in QED up to second order, including all interference effects, within Coherent Exclusive Exponen... Title of program: KK version 4.12 Catalogue Id: ADMD_v1_0 Nature of problem The fermion pair production is and will be used as an important data point for precise tests of the standard electroweak theory at LEP and future linear colliders at higher energies. QED corrections to fermion pair production (especially tau leptons) at c-quark and b-quark factories has to be known to second order, including spin polarization effects. The Standard Model predictions at the per mille precision level, taking into account multiple emission of photons for realistic experimental accep ...
