Nature of problem:
Calculation of QCD evolution of structure functions including next to leading order effects with the immediate aim of determining relevant QCD parameters by least-square fits to experimental data.

Solution method:
Monte Carlo generation of the QCD emission of quanta.

None in the leading log approximation. Only non-singlet analysis is implemented in the next to leading log approximation.

Unusual features:
Use of the CERN Program Library, and specifically of the minimization program MINUITS.
