Abstract We present a code for the QCD-based description of high-energy collisions between longitudinally polarized nucleons. This code is based on PYHTIA, a code for the description of unpolarized nucleon-nucleon collisions. We implemented the polarized cross sections and introduced polarized distribution functions. Polarized proton-proton collisions will be studied at RHIC (BNL). The implementation of transverse polarization requires fundamental changes in the structure of the code and was not yet d... Title of program: SPHINX - HEP MONTE CARLO Catalogue Id: ADBF_v1_0 Nature of problem This program can be used to simulate polarized nucleon-nucleon collisions at high energies. Spins of colliding particles are taken into account. The program allows to calculate cross sections for various processes. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADBF_v1_0; SPHINX - HEP MONTE CARLO; 10.1016/0010-4655(95)00014-7 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
