Soft function Simulation and Evaluation of Real and Virtual Emissions

Guido Bell, Rudi Rahn and Jim Talbert

SoftSERVE is a C/C++ program to evaluate bare soft functions for wide classes of observables in Soft-Collinear Effective Theory.

It is based on the analytic approaches and master formulae laid out in

If you use SoftSERVE, please cite the papers above.
