Nature of problem:
Numerical calculation of the decay widths and branching ratios of supersymmetric particles in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). The program calculates two-, three- and four-body decays and loop decays. It includes the SUSY-QCD corrections to two-body decays involving strongly interacting particles. The top-quark decays within the MSSM are evaluated as well.

Solution method:
Two-dimensional numerical integration of the analytic formulae for the double differential decay widths of the three-body decays. The other decay widths are calculated analytically.

Restrictions:
In the higher order decay modes the total decay widths of the virtually exchanged (s)particles are not included in their respective propagators. The higher order decays are calculated when the two-body decays are kinematically closed.

Running time:
A few seconds on modern personal computers and workstations.
