Nature of problem:
This program can be used to simulate polarized nucleon-nucleon collisions at high energies. Spins of colliding particles are taken into account. The program allows to calculate cross sections for various processes.

Solution method:
The existing Monte Carlo program PYTHIA 5.7 has been modified to incorporate spin effects. The program incorporates all features of PYTHIA.

Spins of colliding nucleons must be parallel to the collision axis.

Additional comments:
Reader has to refer to PYTHIA manual for additional details.
