Abstract We describe a Monte Carlo program that simulates SU(3) lattice gauge theoryon CYBER 205 and ETA^(10)computers. The program uses the Cabibbo Marinari algorithm for the updating and a novel way of gathering neighbors. It achieves a 17.1 μs updating time per link on a 2-pipe CYBER 205 using 32-bit arithmetic. The updating time per link on the ETA^(10)at Florida State University is 8.8 μs. Title of program: U3MAIN Catalogue Id: ABDJ_v1_0 Nature of problem The program simulates SU(3) lattice gauge theory with periodic boundary conditions. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ABDJ_v1_0; U3MAIN; 10.1016/0010-4655(88)90146-4 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
