H1jet is a fast code that computes the total cross section and differential distribution in the transverse momentum of a colour singlet.

In its current version, H1jet implements only leading-order 2 → 1 and 2 → 2 processes, but could be extended to higher orders. H1jet is mainly designed for theorists and can be fruitfully used to assess deviations of selected new physics models from the Standard Model behaviour, as well as to quickly obtain distributions of relevance for Standard Model phenomenology. H1jet is written in Fortran 95 and Python 3, and takes about 1 second to run with default parameters.

Developed by Alexander Lind and Andrea Banfi.
