Dime Monte Carlo: event generator for exclusive meson pair production via double Pomeron exchange
The enclosed standalone Fortran code provides public access to the Monte Carlo generator described in detail in:L.A. Harland-Lang, V.A. Khoze, M.G. Ryskin
"Modeling exclusive meson pair production at hadron colliders"
Please reference this if you use the program for a publication.
The program currently generates unweighted events for central exclusive π+π-, π0π0, K+K-, K0K0, ρ0ρ0 and φφ production via the double pomeron exchange mechanism shown above and described in the corresponding publication. The ρ0 is then subsequently decayed via
ρ0 → π+π-
While the φ is decayed via
φ → K+K-
Currently, these are distributed according to phase space only. Further details can be found in the code preamble.Comments to Lucian Harland-Lang < l.harland-lang (at) ucl.ac.uk >.
