Prophecy4f is a Monte Carlo integrator for Higgs decays H → WW/ZZ → 4 fermions

It includes:

   all four-fermion final states

   NLO QCD and electroweak corrections

   all interferences at LO and NLO

   effects beyond NLO from heavy-Higgs effects

   alternatively an Improved Born Approximation (IBA) with leading effects of the corrections

   production of unweighted events for leptonic final states

   optional inclusion of a 4th fermion generation (w/ or w/o leading two-loop improvements)

What is not included / planned upgrades:

   multi-photon final-state radiation

   interface to parton showers

   anomalous HWW and HZZ couplings

   production of unweighted events for semi-leptonic and hadronic final states
       (at present unweighted events only for Born and IBA for these channels)
