Classification: 11.2.

Nature of problem:
For the study of jets in the two-photon process of e+e- scattering, an event generator based on the perturbative QCD is indispensable. In this process the photon resolving must be included.

Solution method:
Parton showers are extended to include the photon resolving.

Running time:
Using the weight method, GGPS generates 1500 events/s in the deep inelastic scattering for W = 180GeV. While it generates the equally weighted events at the rate of 30 events/s with 2 percent error due to overweight.
