KaTie: For parton-level event generation with k_T-dependent initial states

KaTie is a parton-level event generator for hadron scattering processes that can deal with partonic initial-state momenta with an explicit transverse momentum dependence causing them to be space-like. Provided with the necessary transverse momentum dependent parton density functions, it calculates the tree-level off-shell matrix elements and performs the phase space importance sampling to produce weighted events, for example in the Les Houches Event File format. It can deal with arbitrary processes within the Standard Model, for up to at least four final-state particles. Furthermore, it can produce events for single-parton scattering as well as for multi-parton scattering.
