Abstract We extend the POMWIG Monte Carlo generator developed by B. Cox and J. Forshaw, to include new models of central production through inclusive and exclusive double Pomeron exchange in proton–proton collisions. Double photon exchange processes are described as well, both in proton–proton and heavy-ion collisions. In all contexts, various models have been implemented, allowing for comparisons and uncertainty evaluation and enabling detailed experimental simulations. Title of program: DPEMC version 2.4 Catalogue Id: ADVF_v1_0 Nature of problem Proton diffraction at hadron colliders can manifest itself in many forms, and a variety of models exist that attempt to describe it [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]. This program implements some of the more significant ones, enabling the simulation of central particle production through color singlet exchange between interacting protons or antiprotons. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADVF_v1_0; DPEMC version 2.4; 10.1016/j.cpc.2005.01.002 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
