Standalone MC Production: COMPHEP

Contact: Henry Frisch - Sebastian Carron Montero

Note: The matrix element generator CompHep is currently not part of cdfSim or cdfGen. Generator level MC data can be produced standalone ( instructions) by writing the output in StdHep format (HEPEVT) and importing these generator level data into the CDF Run II offline framework using hepevt2hepg. Large generator level CompHep MC files can also be imported into the CDF Data File Catalog (contact Frank Wuerthwein and Sebastian Carron Montero ). We also plan to make the CompHep source code available in the CDF repository for standalone MC generation.
