Classification: 11.1, 11.6.

External routines: LHAPDF [1].
LoopTools [2], Cuba [3] (included in the distribution file).

Nature of problem:
Theoretical calculations at next-to-leading order in perturbation theory allow the computation of higher precision amplitudes for Standard Model processes and decays, provided proper treatments of UV divergences and IR singularities are performed.

Solution method:
Numerical integration of the precomputed differential expressions for partonic cross sections of certain processes implemented as SANC modules [4].

Restrictions:
The list of processes is limited to Drell-Yan, associated Higgs and gauge boson production and single-top production in s- and t-channel

Running time:
From hours to days depending on the requested precision and kinematic conditions. The example provided takes approximately 10-15 minutes.
