Abstract VNI is a general-purpose Monte Carlo event generator, which includes the simulation of lepton-lepton, lepton-hadron, lepton-nucleus, hadron-hadron, hadron-nucleus, and nucleus-nucleus collisions. On the basis of renormalization-group improved parton description and quantum-kinetic theory, it uses the real-time evolution of parton cascades in conjunction with a self-consistent hadronization scheme that is governed by the dynamics itself. The causal evolution from a specific initial state (dete... Title of program: VNI-3.1 Catalogue Id: ADFZ_v1_0 Nature of problem In high-energy particle collisions certain phase-space regions can be populated by a large number of quanta, such that statistical correlations among them (e.g., in space, momentum, or color) become of essential importance. Examples are deep-inelastic lepton-hadron scattering and hadron-hadron collisions in the region of very small Bjorken-x, or, collisions involving heavy nuclei in the central rapidity region. In these cases the produced particles evolve in a complicated non-equilibrium environ ...
