Hadronic Physics in Geant4: Improvements and Status for LHC Start
Presented by Prof. Vladimir IVANTCHENKO on 4 Nov 2008 from 16:10 to 16:35
Type: Parallel Talk
Track: 3. Computation in Theoretical Physics
An overview of recent developments for the Geant4 hadronic modeling is provided with a focus on the start of the LHC experiments. Improvements in Pre-Compound model, Binary and Bertini cascades, models of elastic scattering, quark-gluon string and Fritiof high energy models, and low-energy neutron transport were introduced using validation versus data from thin target experiments. Many of these developments were directed to improve simulation of hadronic showers for LHC. As a result, starting from Geant4 8.3, the Physics List QGSP_BERT describes reasonably well all the main observables that have been measured in different test-beam setups for ATLAS and CMS experiments.
