Manuscript Title: Precision Studies of the NNLO DGLAP Evolution at the LHC with CANDIA.
Authors: Alessandro Cafarella, Claudio Corianò, Marco Guzzi
Program title: CANDIA
Catalogue identifier: AEBK_v1_0
Distribution format: tar.gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 179(2008)665
Programming language: C and Fortran.
Computer: All.
Operating system: Linux.
RAM: In the given examples, it ranges from 4 MB to 490 MB
Keywords: DGLAP evolution equation, parton distribution functions, x-space solutions, QCD.
PACS: 11.10.Hi.
Classification: 11.1, 11.5.

Nature of problem:
The program provided here solves the DGLAP evolution equations for the parton distribution functions up to NNLO.

Solution method:
The algorithm implemented is based on the theory of the logarithmic expansions in Bjorken-x space

Additional comments:
To be sure of getting the latest version of the program, the authors suggest downloading the code from their official CANDIA website (http://www.le.infn.it/candia).

Running time:
In the given examples, it ranges from 1 to 40 minutes. The jobs have been executed on an Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 CPU at 2 GHz with a 64 bit Linux kernel. The test run script included in the package contains 5 sample runs and may take a number of hours to process, depending on the speed of the processor used and the size of the available RAM.
