Toward UrQMD Model Description of pp and pC Interactions at High

V. Uzhinsky
It is found that UrQMD model version 3.3 does not describe NA61/SHINE Collaboration data on \pi-meson production in pp interactions at energies 20 - 80 GeV. At the same time, it describes quite well the NA49 Collaboration data on the meson production in pp and pC interactions at 158 GeV. The Collaborations do not consider feedback of \eta-meson decays. All versions of the UrQMD model assume that \eta-mesons are "stable". An inclusion of the decays into calculations leads to 2--3 % increase of the meson production which is not enough for description of the data. Possible ways of the model improvements are considered. Conclusions of the paper are: accounting of \eta-meson decays is not essential for a description of experimental data; a new tuning of the UrQMD model parameters is needed for a successful description of pp and pC interactions at high energies; inclusion of the low mass diffraction dissociation in the UrQMD model would be desirable.
