ThePEG (Toolkit for High Energy Physics Event Generation) is a generic platform for building and using Monte Carlo event generators in the C++ programming language. Its purpose is to provide those software parts that are common to many different event generators.

ThePEG is used by the Herwig and Dipsy event generators. It is now being developed in parallel with Herwig 7.
