Abstract HYDJET++ is a Monte Carlo event generator for simulation of relativistic heavy ion AA collisions considered as a superposition of the soft, hydro-type state and the hard state resulting from multi-parton fragmentation. This model is the development and continuation of HYDJET event generator (Lokhtin and Snigirev, EPJC 45 (2006) 211). The main program is written in the object-oriented C++ language under the ROOT environment. The hard part of HYDJET++ is identical to the hard part of Fortran-wr... Title of program: HYDJET++, version 2 Catalogue Id: AECR_v1_0 Nature of problem The experimental and phenomenological study of multi-particle production in relativistic heavy ion collisions is expected to provide valuable information on the dynamical behaviour of strongly-interacting matter in the form of quark-gluon plasma (QGP) [2-4], as predicted by lattice Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) calculations. Ongoing and future experimental studies in a wide range of heavy ion beam energies require the development of new Monte-Carlo (MC) event generators and improvement of existin ... Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AECR_v1_0; HYDJET++, version 2; 10.1016/j.cpc.2008.11.015 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
