Abstract The Monte Carlo program WWGENPV, designed for computing distributions and generating events for four-fermion production in e^+ e^-collisions, is described. The new version, 2.0, includes the full set of the electroweak (EW) tree-level matrix elements for double-and single-W production, initial-and final-state photonic radiation including PT/PL effects in the Structure Function formalism, all the relevant non-QED corrections (Coulomb correction, naive QCD, leading EW corrections). An hadroni... Title of program: WWGENPV 2.0 Catalogue Id: ADBU_v2_0 [ADEL] Nature of problem The precise measurement of the W-boson mass MW constitutes a primary task of the forthcoming experiments at the high energy electron-positron collider LEP2 (2MW <= sqrt(s) <= 210 GeV). A meaningful comparison between theory and experiment requires an accurate description of the fully exclusive processes e+e- -> 4f, including the main effects of radiative corrections, with the final goal of providing predictions for the distributions measured by the experiments.
