Abstract Physics and programming aspects are discussed for a Fortran 77 Monte Carlo program to simulate complete events in deep inelastic lepton-nucleon scattering. The parton level interaction is based on the standard model electroweak cross sections, which are fully implemented in leading order for any lepton of arbitrary polarization, and different parametrizations of parton density functions can be used. First order QCD matrix elements for gluon radiation and boson-gluon fusion are implemented and... Title of program: LEPTO version 6.5 Catalogue Id: ADFE_v1_0 Nature of problem To describe the complete interaction dynamics and the resulting final state in deep inelastic lepton-nucleon scattering. Simulated events facilitate studies of the hadronic final state with, e.g., jets and rapidity gaps. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADFE_v1_0; LEPTO version 6.5; 10.1016/S0010-4655(96)00157-9 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
