MuCol - A Design Study for a Muon Collider complex at the 10 TeV centre-of-mass energy is a European funded project devoted to high-energy muon collision studies. One of the work packages is dedicated to the investigation of the beam-induced background effects on the detector and to the definition of a detector including its performance. 

This tutorial provides a practical introduction to the simulation software and physics-performance tools used in this design study, and is open to all the MuCol participants, especially the newcomers. It comprises of short introductory talks and hands-on sessions designed for the participants to start collaborating within the scope of this project as soon as possible.

In addition to presentations in the agenda see the tutorial in the dedicated Wiki.
