Manuscript Title: TikZ-Feynman: Feynman diagrams with TikZ
Authors: Joshua Ellis
Program title: TikZ-Feynman
Catalogue identifier: AFBF_v1_0
Distribution format: tar.gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 210(2016)103
Programming language: TeX, LaTeX, Lua.
Computer: PC's or workstations.
Operating system: Any capable of processing LaTeX.
Keywords: TikZ-Feynman, TikZ, LaTeX, Feynman diagrams.
Classification: 4.4.

External routines: TikZ

Nature of problem:
Existing methods for drawing Feynman diagrams in LaTeX usually require external programs and are not very user friendly thereby making it difficult and time consuming to generate even simple diagrams.

Solution method:
TikZ-Feynman provides an easier way to draw Feynman diagrams by building on TikZ and using graph drawing algorithms to automatically place vertices. This can be combined with some positioning to produce complicated diagrams with relative ease.

Running time:
Depends on the size
