A Monte Carlo program for τ pair production and decay applicable to the experiments in e+e− colliders in the Z resonance energy range is presented. The program includes initial and final state bremsstrahlung corrections up to the O(α2) (with exclusive exponentiation), and O(α) electroweak corrections. More than twenty distinct τ decay modes can be generated: (a) leptonic modes τ−→vve−(γ) and vvμ-(γ); (b) one-meson modes, vπ− and vK−; (c) two-me son modes, ν{π− π0}ρ−, ν{K− π0}K∗− and ν{K0π−}K… CONTINUE READING
