Abstract

Cascade is a full hadron level Monte Carlo event generator for ep, γp and \(p\bar{p}\) and pp processes, which uses the CCFM evolution equation for the initial state cascade in a backward evolution approach supplemented with off-shell matrix elements for the hard scattering. A detailed program description is given, with emphasis on parameters the user wants to change and common block variables which completely specify the generated events.
