EGSnrc is a software toolkit to perform Monte Carlo simulation of ionizing radiation transport through matter. It models the propagation of photons, electrons and positrons with kinetic energies between 1 keV and 10 GeV, in homogeneous materials. EGSnrc was originally released in 2000, as a complete overhaul of the Electron Gamma Shower (EGS) software package originally developed at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) in the 1970s. Most notably, EGSnrc incorporates crucial refinements in charged particle transport, better low energy cross sections, and the egs++ class library to model elaborate geometries and particle sources.
