Nature of problem:
The nature of the physical problem is a calculation of the inclusive x-spectra of the secondary particles in p-p interactions, based on the quark-gluon string model.

Solution method:
The method of solution is a convolution of the quark structure functions with the fragmentation functions. Due to the singularities we use a standard procedure TAMORI (E. De Doncker and R. Piessens. Computing 17(1976)256), which performs the integration with desirable precision.

Restrictions on the applicability of the program is the energy range from 19.7 GeV up to 540 GeV where we have verified the energy conservation laws.

Running time:
The running time is not longer than 2 minutes on the above mentioned computer.
