Does the new version supersede the previous version?: Yes

Nature of problem:
The lepton inclusive and semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering (DIS and SIDIS) off nuclear target have greatly contributed to the parton structure of hadron, the parametrization of parton distribution function (PDF), and the extraction of fragmentation function (FF). Unfortunately, the PACIAE 2.1 model is unable to describe the lepton-nucleon and lepton-nucleus DIS (SIDIS), the corresponding upgrade is highly required.

Solution method:
The parton and hadron cascade model of PACIAE 2.1 is upgraded to PACIAE 2.2 with the possibility of investigating the lepton-nucleon and lepton-nucleus DIS (SIDIS). In the PACIAE 2.2 model the lepton-nucleon and lepton-nucleus DIS are treated the same as proton-nucleon and proton-nucleus collisions in PACIAE 2.1, respectively. However, the lepton-nucleon DIS cross section is used instead of the nucleon-nucleon cross section in the initiation stage of the PACIAE model.

Reasons for new version:
In order that the PACIAE 2.2 model is now also able to simulate the lepton-nucleon and lepton-nucleus DIS.

Summary of revisions:
In the PACIAE 2.2 model the lepton-nucleon and lepton- nucleus DIS are dealt with the same way as the proton-nucleon and proton-nucleus collisions in PACIAE 2.1, respectively. However, the lepton-nucleon DIS cross section is employed instead of nucleon-nucleon cross section.

Restrictions:
Depend on the problem studied.

Running time:
PACIAE 2.2 has three versions of PACIAE 2.2a, 2.2b, and 2.2c. PACIAE 2.2a is for the elementary collision, such as pp, pp and e+e- collisions, as well as the lepton-nucleon DIS, with input file of usux.dat. PACIAE 2.2b and PACIAE 2.2c are for the nuclear-nucleus collision of p+A and A+B as well as the lepton-nucleus DIS with input file of usu.dat. PACIAE 2.2b and 2.2c are similar in the physical contents but are different in the topological structure (see text for the details).
  • Using the attached input file of usux.dat to run 1000 events for the √s=200 GeV Non Single Diffractive pp collision by PACIAE 2.2a takes 0.5 minute.
  • Using the attached input file of usu.dat to run 10 events for the 10-40% most central Au+Au collisions at √ s N N =200 GeV by PACIAE 2.2b takes 4 minutes.
  • Using the attached input file of usu.dat to run 10 events for the 10-40% most central Au+Au collisions at √ s N N =200 GeV by PACIAE 2.2c takes 8 minutes.
