The EtabFDC is a matrix-element event generator package for eta(b) hadroproduction at LHC. It generates pp -> eta X-b events for all possible parton-level 2 -> 2 leading-order processes with three commonly used 116 decay channels being implemented. The PYTHIA interface is used for parton-shower and hadronization to obtain the hadronic events. The FORTRAN codes of this package are generated by FDC (Feynman Diagram Calculation) system automatically. Program summary Program title: EtabFDC (Version 1.01) Catalogue identifier: AEBV_v1_0 Program summary URL: http://cpc.cs.qub.ac.uk/summaries/AEBV_v1_0.html Program obtainable from: CPC Program Library, Queen's University, Belfast. N. Ireland Licensing provisions: Standard CPC licence, http://cpc.cs.qub.ac.uk/licence/licence.html No. of lines in distributed program, including test data, etc.: 1840204 No. of bytes in distributed program, including test data, etc.: 18 018379 Distribution format: tar.gz Programming language: FORTRAN 77 Computer: Any computer with Linux operating system and GNU 77 Fortran compiler Operating system: Linux (with GNU FORTRAN 77 compiler) Classification: 11.1 External routines: CERNLIB 2001 (or CERNLIB 2003) Nature of problem: This package generates pp -> eta X-b events for partonic 2 -> 2 tree-level processes with implementing three eta(b) decay channels. It then interfaces with PYTHIA for parton-shower and hadronization to obtain the hadronic events. Solution method: The FORTRAN codes of this package are generated by FDC system [ I) automatically. Additional comments: This program could not be tested by the CPC Program Library as it requires the CERNLIB libraries. Running time: To generate 1000 events on a 3.2G Intel-P4 CPU platform (with hyper-technology). it will take approximate 20, 30 and 300 seconds for decay channel eta(b) J/psi gamma,eta(b)-> J/psi J/psi and eta b -> J/psi ccbar, respectively.
