dc.abstract.en We present the Monte Carlo event generator WINHAC for Drell–Yan processes in proton–proton, proton–antiproton, proton–ion and ion–ion collisions. It features multiphoton radiation within the Yennie–Frautschi–Suura exclusive exponentiation scheme with $O\left ( \alpha \right )$ electroweak corrections for the charged-current $\left ( W^{+}/W^{-} \right )$ processes and multiphoton radiation generated by PHOTOS for neutral-current $\left ( Z+\gamma \right )$ ones. For the initial-state QCD/QED parton shower and hadronisation, it is interfaced with PYTHIA. It includes several options, e.g. for the polarized W-boson production, generation of weighted/unweighted events, etc. WINHAC was cross-checked numerically at the per-mille level with independent Monte Carlo programs, such as HORACE and SANC. It has been used as a basic tool for developing and testing some new methods of precise measurements of the Standard Model parameters at the LHC, in particular the W-boson mass. Recently, it has been applied to simulations of the double Drell–Yan processes resulting from double-parton scattering, in order to assess their influence on the Higgs-boson detection at the LHC in its ZZ and $W^{+}W^{-}$ decay channels. pl
