An Algorithm for Computing Screened Coulomb Scattering in Geant4

Preprint English OPEN
Mendenhall, Marcus H.; Weller, Robert A.;
(2004)

An algorithm has been developed for the Geant4 Monte-Carlo package for the efficient computation of screened Coulomb interatomic scattering. It explicitly integrates the classical equations of motion for scattering events, resulting in precise tracking of both the proje... View more
