Monte Carlo event generation for future super colliders

Author

Summary, in English

The importance of Monte Carlo event generation for future super colliders is discussed and a brief overview of available programs is given. To emphasize the need for different models of the hadronization process, an example of a measurement is presented where fragmentation effects ‘destroys’ an effect predicted by perturbative QCD also at very high energies. Finally the use of modern programming techniques and languages in Monte Carlo event generation is discussed and MC++ - an event generator toolkit for the C++ programming language is presented.
