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

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.
