A top 10 paper claim

The paper “PYTHIA 6.4 Physics Manual,” published in 2006 by scientists at Lund University and Fermilab, has made it into the top 10 most highly cited papers in the INSPIRE high-energy physics literature database.

It is the only paper published in the last 10 years that has made it into the latest top 10 list (excluding the PDG’s Review of Particle Properties). Published by Torbjorn Sjostrand (Lund), Stephen Mrenna (Fermilab) and Peter Skands (now Monash University, Australia), it has amassed more than 6,500 citations. Congratulations to the authors.
