BCVEGPY: an event generator for hadronic production of the B-c meson

Abstract
We have written a Fortran program BCVEGPY, which is an event generator for the hadronic production of the B-c meson through the dominant hard subprocess gg --> B-c(B-c(*)) + b + c. To achieve a compact program, we have written the amplitude of the subprocess with the particle helicity technique and made it as symmetric as possible, by decomposing the gluon self couplings and then applying the symmetries. To check the program, various cross sections of the subprocess have been computed numerically and compared with those in the literature. BCVEGPY is written in a PYTHIA-compatible format, thus it is easy to implement in PYTHIA.
