Abstract APACIC++ is a Monte Carlo event-generator dedicated for the simulation of electron–positron annihilations into jets. Within the framework of APACIC++, the emergence of jets is identified with the perturbative production of partons as governed by corresponding matrix elements. In addition to the build-in matrix elements describing the production of two and three jets, further programs can be linked allowing for the simultaneous treatment of higher numbers of jets. APACIC++ hosts a new approach... Title of program: APACIC++, version 1.0 Catalogue Id: ADNE_v1_0 Nature of problem With rising energies, the final state in high-energy electron positron-annihilations becomes increasingly complex. The number of jets as well as the number of observable particles, leptons, hadrons and photons, increases drastically and prevents any analytical prediction of the full final state. In addition, the transformation of the partons of perturbative quantum field theory into the experimentally observable hadrons is so far not understood on a quantitative level. Both obstacles prevent any ...
