Some comments on the current status of event generators for small-x

Author

Summary, in English

We discuss some aspects of the current status of event generators for small-x DIS. In particular we report on recent results using the CCFM evolution implemented in the SMALLX and CASCADE program concerning the importance of the so-called consistency constraint, and compare with the linked dipole chain model implemented in the LDC program. We point out some potential problems with the resolved virtual photon approach to small-x final states. We do not, however, discuss the fact that the ARIADNE program, implementing the soft-radiation dipole cascade, reproduces the bulk of small-x final-state data from HERA.
