Keywords: Glauber approximation, Nucleus-nucleus interactions at high energies, Monte-carlo calculation, Diagram generator, Nuclear physics, Theoretical methods.
Classification: 17.16.

Nature of problem:
Calculation of different characteristics of inelastic nucleus-nucleus collisions within the framework of the Glauber approximation.

Solution method:
Monte-Carlo evaluation of multiple integrals and probability interpretation of the Glauber approximation is used.

Unusual features:
A random number generator is required.

Running time:
It depends on the mass numbers of colliding nuclei. In the test example of 238 U and 16 O the calculation of the cross section and the profile function takes 103 sec, and 0.5 sec for one diagram generation is required.
