LoopTools is a package for evaluation of scalar and tensor one-loop
integrals based on the
FF package by G.J. van Oldenborgh. It features an easy Fortran, C++,
and Mathematica interface to the scalar one-loop functions of FF and in
addition provides the 2-, 3-, and 4-point tensor coefficient

The installation script gets you started quickly and easily.
- Download the shell script FeynInstall [6 kB, MD5: 532aea5da893c07924a66a457ab9afd0].
(Use the right mouse button and "Save Link to Disk...")
- Make it executable with "chmod 755 FeynInstall".
- Run it in the directory in which you want the packages installed:
- The script separately prompts you for the installation of
FeynArts, FormCalc, and LoopTools.
- Finally, it asks whether to include FeynArts and FormCalc in

ABTools is a "light" version of LoopTools. It contains just the
one- and two-point functions and consists of only the Fortran library
(no C++ or Mathematica part). The code is pure Fortran and very
easy to build.
To compile the libraries you need f77 and gcc.
From Mathematica 7 on you must also have g++ (and libstdc++) installed
for the MathLink compile.
Installation notes for the impatient:
- unpack the LoopTools-m.n.tar.gz archive,
- change into the LoopTools-m.n directory,
- run "./configure",
- run "make",
- run "make install".
More detailed instructions are given in the manual contained in the
You can obtain the manual of the current
Ready-made MathLink executables
(Version 2.15, statically linked as far as possible):
Linux (64-bit x86):
Mac OS X (64-bit x86):
Cygwin/Windows (64-bit x86):
Instructions: download and gunzip the executable, then make it
executable with "chmod 755 file".
