Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 86(1995)264 | ||

Programming language: Fortran. | ||

Computer: SUN-IPX. | ||

Operating system: SUN-OS-4.1.2, VAX/VMS V5.5-2. | ||

Keywords: Particle physics, Elementary, QCD, Altarelli-Parisi Equation, Numerical solution, Q**2 evolution, Laguerre polynomials. | ||

Classification: 11.5. | ||

Nature of problem:This program solves the Altarelli-Parisi equation for a spin-independent flavour-nonsinglet structure function or quark distribution. | ||

Solution method:We expand an initial quark distribution (or a structure function) and a splitting function by Laguerre polynomials. Then, the solution of the Altarelli-Parisi equation is expressed in terms of the Laguerre expansion coefficients and the Laguerre polynomials. | ||

Restrictions:This program is used for calculating Q**2 evolution of a spin- independent flavour-nonsinglet structure function or quark distribution in the leading order or in the next-to-leading-order of alphas. Double precision arithmetic is used. The renormalization scheme is the modified minimal subtraction scheme (MSbar). A user provides the initial structure function or the quark distribution as a subroutine. Examples are explained in sections 3.2, 4.13 and 4.14. Then, the user inputs thirteen parameters explained in section 3.1. | ||

Running time:Approximately five (three) seconds on SUN-IPX (VAX-4000/500) if the initial distribution is provided in the form of b1 c1 b2 c2 a x (1-x) + a x (1-x) + ... 1 2in the subroutine GETFQN. If Laguerre coefficients of the initial distribution in the subroutine FQNS(x) are calculated by a GAUSS quadrature, the running time becomes longer depending on the function form. |
