New mFOAM package

Dear ROOT users,
For those who want to generate automaticaly (Monte Carlo),

  • arbitrarily complicated
  • user-provided
  • multidimensional probability distribution,
    we are pleased to announce new package mFOAM-1.02
    available with ROOT (version 4.04 and later).

mFOAM (mini FOAM) is simplified version of FOAM – multi-dimensional
general purpose Monte Carlo event generator (integrator) with
hyper-cubical “foam of cells”. mFOAM is intended as an easy
to use tool for MC simulation/integration in few dimensions. mFOAM can
be easily used from the ROOT shell and borrows persistency mechanism from
ROOT classes. The only user responsibility is to specify probability
distribution or integrand function.

mFOAM package is described in the recent LANL preprint physics-0506084.
Documentation is also available online:

Advanced users may be also interested in more sophisticated version of FOAM
distributed as a stand-alone (with or without ROOT) program with
the optional simplical grid.

We invite all ROOT users to test mFOAM and provide us feedback.

S.Jadach and P.Sawicki
