This is the page for the Dispatch package, a common interface to

DISENT and

DISASTER++,
which exploits a single Monte Carlo event to generate contributions
to event shape distributions at many

*x* and

*Q* values
simultaneously. This leads to considerable speed improvements when
looking at many points in

*x* and

*Q*.

The current release is dispatch-1.0.4.
A brief description of the algorithm and instructions for use are
given in the documentation.

Additionally the following sets of fixed-order distributions,
generated with dispatch, are available for download:

- h1-fixeds.top.gz:
distributions for a range of event shapes generated with about 1.8
billion DISASTER++ events at the mean
*x* and *Q* values
of all bins where H1 measures event shapes. It must be decompressed
before use. (NB: owing to an oversight, the upper limit of the
C-parameter was set at 0.5 which means that distributions cannot be
calculated beyond C=0.5).
- h1dntb-fixeds.top.gz:
analogous file generated with 1.4 billion DISENT events (and with
the correct upper limit on the C-parameter).
