Production rates are computed within the NRQCD theory (NonRelativistic QCD, Bodwin, Braaten and Lepage, see hepph/9407339), where cross sections are expanded in %$\alpha_s$% and %$\normalsize v$%, the relative velocity in the heavy quarkonium state.

The amplitude generator is interfaced with MadEvent to produce unweighted events. These events are written in the same format in the lhe format and can be passed through Pythia for the showering and hadronization.16 MadOnia automatically generates any treelevel amplitude for an arbitrary transition $\normalsize n$ (up to Pwave state) required for the computation of the shortdistance coefficients.
