    We consider the evolution of a parton system which is formed at the central rapidity region just after an ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collision. The evolution of the system, which is composed of gluons, quarks and antiquarks, is described by relativistic Boltzmann equations with collision terms including radiation and retardation effects. The equations are solved by the test particle method using Monte Carlo sampling. Our simulations do not show any evidence of kinetic equilibration, unless the cross sections are artificially increased to unrealistically large values.
