Manuscript Title: Fast evolution of parton distributions.
Authors: S. Weinzierl
Program title: partonevolution version 1.0
Catalogue identifier: ADQL_v1_0
Distribution format: tar.gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 148(2002)314
Programming language: C++.
Computer: PC (Athlon, 1.6 GHz).
RAM: 1M words
Keywords: Parton distributions, Next-to-leading order evolution, Elementary particle physics, Phenomenological model.
Classification: 11.6.

Nature of problem:
Parameterizations of parton distributions are usually given at a fixed input scale Q0. To be used in perturbative calculations, they have to be evolved numerically to the desired scale Q.

Solution method:
Inverse Mellin transform method.

Restrictions:
None.

Running time:
10**2s on a standard PC for an accuracy of 0.02%, see also sect. 5.
