Monte Carlo generators and the CCFM equation

Hannes Jung, Leif Lönnblad

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceedingpeer-review


We discuss three implementations of the CCFM evolution equations in event generator programs. We find that some of them are able to describe observables such as forward jet rates in DIS at HERA, but only if the so-called consistency constraint is removed. We also find that these results are sensitive to the treatment of non-singular terms in the gluon splitting function.
