We present 9 new tunes of the p{sub perpendicular}-ordered shower and underlying-event model in Pythia 6.4. These 'Perugia' tunes update and supersede the older 'S0' family. The data sets used to constrain the models include hadronic Z{sup 0} decays at LEP, Tevatron min-bias data at 630, 1800, and 1960 GeV, Tevatron Drell-Yan data at 1800 and 1960 GeV, and SPS min-bias data at 200, 546, and 900 GeV. In addition to the central parameter set, called 'Perugia 0', we introduce a set of 8 related… Expand
