Nature of problem:
In deeply inelastic scattering, the hadronic final state can be analysed by a jet cluster algorithm resulting in cross sections for the production of (n+1) jets (including the target remnant jet). It is possible to extract physical parameters (AlphaQCD, parton densities fi(xi,mu2f)) from experimentally measured jet cross sections.

Solution method:
PROJET makes it possible to study these cross sections from a theoretical point of view by performing the integration of the differential cross sections over phase space regions that are related to a certain number of jets. QCD corrections are included by analytical formulae.

The program contains jet cross sections for the production of (1+1), (2+1) and (3+1) jets. QCD corrections to (1+1) and (2+1) jet cross sections are included for all polarisations of the exchanged virtual photon.

Running time:
Depends strongly on the process under consideration; the generation of the weight for 1 event takes typically 0.001 to 0.02 seconds on a DEC or hp workstation, depending on the process; therefore an integration using 200,000 events typically needs 3 minutes to 1 hour of CPU time.
