Abstract The Yang–Mills equations provide a classical mean field description of the non-Abelian soft glue field dynamics in heavy ion collisions at high energies. A C++ code for the numerical solution on a three-dimensional gauge lattice is presented. Non-perturbative time-dependent solutions in position space are calculated in the weak coupling regime of a gauge lattice within the Hamiltonian approach of Kogut and Susskind. Applications are demonstrated by simulations of the Yang–Mills field dynamics... Title of program: Catalogue Id: ADLN_v1_0 Nature of problem Coherence effects are important in the description of the formation and evolution of the quark gluon plasma in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. In particular the description of the initial state of the two colliding nuclei requires the coherent evolution of colour fields generated by random sources. In order to develop an appropriate transport model for the early stage of high energetic nuclear collisions it is therefore necessary to study first pure Yang-Mills field dynamics as a cohere ...
