Herwig++ is a particle physics event generator, written in C++. It is built on the experience gained with the well-known event generator HERWIG. The aim is to provide a multi purpose event generator with similar or improved capabilities (like angular ordered parton evolution and the cluster hadronization model). The ongoing development of the Fortran version has terminated and Herwig++ replaces it.
Herwig++ is based on ThePEG.

A small number of modules in Herwig++ use LoopTools 2.6. The required code is included in the Herwig++ tarball.
