A Monte-Carlo generator for statistical hadronization in high energy e+e collisions

Abstract

We present a Monte-Carlo implementation of the Statistical Hadronization Model in e+e collisions. The physical scheme is based on the statistical hadronization of massive clusters produced by the event generator Herwig within the microcanonical ensemble. We present a preliminary comparison of several observables with measurements in e+e collisions at the Z peak. Although a fine tuning of the model parameters is not carried out, a general good agreement between its predictions and data is found.
