Programming language: C++.
Computer: any computer with a C++ compiler and the ROOT environment [1], tested with Intel Core 2 Duo T5200, 1.6 GHz, 1 GB RAM.
Operating system: Linux Ubuntu 7.04- 8.04 (gcc 4.1.3-4.2.3), Scientific Linux CERN 3.08 (gcc 3.2.3), Windows XP with Cygwin (gcc 3.4.4 cygwin special), MacBook Pro OSX 10.5.2 (gcc 4.0.1), ROOT ver. 5.08 5.18.
RAM: below 120 MB
Keywords: Glauber model, wounded nucleons, Monte Carlo generator, relativistic heavy-ion collisions, particle production.
PACS: 25.75.-q, 25.75.Dw, 25.75.Ld.
Classification: 17.8.

External routines: The ROOT system [1]

Nature of problem:
Glauber-like models of the initial state in relativistic heavy-ion collisions.

Solution method:
Glauber Monte-Carlo simulation of collision events, analyzed with ROOT.

Running time:
40 s/10000 events for the wounded-nucleon model and 60 s/10000 events for the mixed model with the Γ distribution, minimum-bias Au+Au collisions with the fixed-last algorithm for nuclear repulsion, dispersion of sources, and hard-sphere wounding profile. a typical "physics" run with 500000 events takes about 1 hour. The use of the Gaussian wounding profile increases the time about 6 times. (All times for Intel Core 2 Duo T5200 1.6 GHz)
