With this book we try to reach several more-or-less unattainable goals namely: To compromise in a single book all the most important achievements of Monte Carlo calculations for solving neutron and photon transport problems. To present a book which discusses the same topics in the three levels known from the literature and gives us useful. X-5 Monte Carlo Team. MCNP-a General Monte Carlo N-Particle Transport Code. Version 5 Vol. I: Overview and Theory (LA-UR ). Los Alamos: Los Alamos National Laboratory; Zaidi H. Comparative evaluation of photon cross-section libraries for materials of interest in PET Monte Carlo simulations. IEEE Trans. Nucl. Sci. ; describe a book in progress, which will provide a broad introduction to the theory of electron/photon transport and its many applications in radiation physics.

Program FOTELP is a general purpose Monte Carlo code for the simulation of the coupled transport of electrons, positrons and photons. For pur-.

List by Michel Maire (Lapp/Annecy), Introduction to Monte Carlo radiation transport codes, Electron-Gamma Shower (EGS) • The Electron-Gamma Shower (EGS) computer code system is a general purpose package for the Monte Carlo simulation of the coupled transport of electrons and photons • Features an arbitrary geometry • For particles with. Monte Carlo transport of radiation photon transport At each interaction Point: • Compton • photo-electric • pair production Interaction probabilities depend on energy, atomic no., density Analog Transport Courtesy I.J. Chetty P(R) = μe-μR • The probability distribution function for photons interacting in a homogeneous medium is given by. Figure 2: A simulation of the cascade resulting from ﬁve GeV electrons incident from the left on a target. The electrons produce photons which produce electron-positron pairs and so on until the energy of the particles falls below the cascade region. Electron and positron tracks are shown with black lines. Detailed Monte Carlo Simulation of Electron Transport and Electron Energy Loss Spectra M. ATTARIAN SHANDIZ, 1 F. SALVAT,2 AND R.
