Description

Geant4 website  

Geant4 is a toolkit for the simulation of the passage of particles through matter. Its application areas include high energy, nuclear and accelerator physics, as well as studies in medical and space science.

It provides a complete set of tools for all areas of detector simulation: geometry, tracking, detector response, run, event and track management, visualization and user interface. The multi-disciplinary nature of the toolkit requires that it supply an abundant set of Physics Processes to handle diverse interactions of particles with matter over a wide energy range. For many physics processes a choice of different models is available.
