Abstract Cascade is a full hadron level Monte Carlo event generator for ep, γp and p p ̄ processes, which uses the CCFM evolution equation for the initial state cascade in a backward evolution approach supplemented with off-shell matrix elements for the hard scattering. A detailed program description is given, with emphasis on parameters the user wants to change and common block variables which completely specify the generated ... Title of program: CASCADE 1.00/01 Catalogue Id: ADPK_v1_0 Nature of problem High-energy collisions of particles at moderate values of x are well described by resummations of leading logarithms of transverse momenta (alphas ln Q^2)^n, generally referred to as DGLAP physics. At small x leading-logs of longitudinal momenta, (alphas ln x)^n, are expected to become equally if not more important (BFKL). An appropriate description valid for both small and moderate x is given by the CCFM evolution equation, resulting in an unintegrated gluon density A(x,kt,,qbar), which is also ...
