Is there any groups working on FF's like CTEQ on PDF's?

    I know some groups on PDF's like CTEQ, MSTW, NNPDF...
    Is there any groups working on the parameterization of fragmentation functions, and publish any codes that can be called?

    Peterson is the old standy. Matteo Cacciari has done work on more modern ones.

    Oh, thanks!
    I searched "Matteo Cacciari" in inspire, and found "FastJet user manual".
    I know other softwares like Pythia, Herwig..., but they are event simulation tools.
    Are there any parameterization forms or any code packages about FF's like CTEQ does in PDF's case?

    By ff do you mean flux?

    I'm pretty sure the different PDF groups finalised the paramterisations quite a while ago. What is it you particularly care about? Number of eigen vectors or ?

    ff = fragmentation functions
