Abstract FRITIOF is a Monte Carlo program that implements the Lund string dynamics model for hadron-hadron, hadron-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions. This new version extends from the original low-P_Tconstructions to include hard scattering effects and a more refined treatment of the QCD gluon radiation in terms of a soft radiation model in the colour dipole approximation. This paper includes a brief presentation of the model and a description of the program. Title of program: FRITIOF version 7.0 Catalogue Id: ACHY_v1_0 Nature of problem In high energy hadron-hadron, hadron-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions multi particle final states are produced. The bulk of the particles produced are at low PT. Strong interaction processes are generally non-perturbative and can not yet be fully understood in terms of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). As energy gets higher, some high-PT phenomena begin to appear in accordance with the perturbative calculations in QCD. The problem is to consistently connect the high PT Rutherford scattering an ...
