Pressestimmen'The monograph is well written and contains many physical insights. It is an authoritative source of information on models, originating in Lund, which form the basis of Monte Carlo programmes that are widely used in the analysis of data in the collisions of high energy particles. It will be of value to experimental and theoretical particle physicists alike.' A. D. Martin, Contemporary Physics '... a fine reference work which every decent science library should have.' Brian L. Burrows, Zentralblatt MATH
