MadGraph Standalone

The MadGraph StandAlone package is the current official version of the original MadGraph program which is mostly meant for "theorists". Given a model and a (multi-)process, MadGraph Standalone creates the corresponding code for the matrix element squared. The resulting file is easily exportable to other codes, since the dependencies are kept to a minimum. The only libraries needed are for HELAS (libdhelas3.a) and for the MODEL (libmodel.a). These are automatically built and available in the libraries directory (lib). Parameters of the model are passed in a standardized format LesHouches II-like through the param_card.dat. A sample program, check , that generates random points in phase space and returns the corresponding value of the matrix element is provided. Detailed instructions can be found in the README file.
