Abstract LUCIAE is a Monte Carlo program that, connected to FRITIOF, implements both the Firecracker Model (FCM), a possible mechanism for collective multi-gluon emission from the colour fields of interacting strings, and the reinteraction of the final state hadrons in relativistic heavy ion collisions. This paper includes a brief presentation of the dynamics of LUCIAE with an emphasis on the new features in this version, as well as a description of the program. Title of program: LUCIAE version 3 Catalogue Id: ADBS_v2_0 [ADJN] Nature of problem The experiments of relativistic pA and AA collisions reveal that high energy heavy-ion collisions have some features which can not be understood by the simple superposition of independent nucleon-nucleon collisions. They indicate clearly that the collective effects are important in the relativistic pA and AA collisions. Formation of a QGP is often suggested to be a candidate to account for some of these collective effects. Could we understand those new features in pA and AA collisions by convent ...
