Description: 
RacoonWW 1.3: A Monte Carlo program for fourfermion production at e+e− colliders. We present the Monte Carlo generator RacoonWW that computes cross sections to all processes e+e−→4f and e+e−→4fγ and calculates the complete electroweak radiative corrections to e+e−→WW→4f in the electroweak Standard Model in doublepole approximation. The calculation of the treelevel processes e+e−→4f and e+e−→4fγ is based on the full matrix elements for massless (polarized) fermions. When calculating radiative corrections to e+e−→WW→4f, the complete virtual doublyresonant electroweak corrections are included, i.e. the factorizable and nonfactorizable virtual corrections in doublepole approximation, and the real corrections are based on the full matrix elements for e+e−→4fγ. The matching of soft and collinear singularities between virtual and real corrections is done alternatively in two different ways, namely by using a subtraction method or by applying phasespace slicing. Higherorder initialstate photon radiation and naive QCD corrections are taken into account. RacoonWW also provides anomalous triple gaugeboson couplings for all processes e+e−→4f and anomalous quartic gaugeboson couplings for all processes e+e−→4fγ.
