Simulation of meson–proton interactions is considered in the framework of a new phenomenological model (FANSY 2.0 QGSJ) developed on the basis of the traditional quark-gluon string model to simulate hadron interactions in a wide energy range. The model reproduces low-energy accelerator data on the generation of mesons, , and resonances, strange , , and resonances, charmed , and mesons, p, and baryons, and hyperons in pion–proton and kaon–proton interactions. The relationship between the quark composition of the most energetic hadrons and the leading effect is discussed. A general agreement between simulated results and experimental data is shown.
