== FLUKA ==
 
=== FLUKA basics ===
 
[[FLUKA]] is a general purpose Monte Carlo particle transport code covering a wide range of applications including basic research in high energy physics, radiation protection, dosimetry and a number of other applications. The use of FLUKA in Monte Carlo simulations related to radiation therapy, including protons and carbon ions, has previously been evaluated.
 
 
 
General information can be found at [http://www.fluka.org/ the FLUKA web-page]. In order to download and install FLUKA you must register as a user on [http://www.fluka.org/ the FLUKA web-page].
 
 
 
Information on installation, creating and running simulations can be found at the dedicated [[FLUKA]] page of this wiki
 
 
 
=== Flair ===
 
Flair is an advanced user friendly interface for FLUKA to facilitate the editing of FLUKA input files, execution of the code and visualization of the output files. It is based entirely on python and Tkinter. Further information and download can be found [http://www.fluka.org/flair here]
 
 
 
== GEANT4 ==
 
Geant4 is a toolkit for the simulation of the passage of particles through matter. Its areas of application include high energy, nuclear and accelerator physics, as well as studies in medical and space science. The two main reference papers for Geant4 are published in Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research  [http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0168900203013688 (A 506 (2003) 250-303)], and IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science [http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpls/abs_all.jsp?isnumber=33833&arnumber=1610988&count=33&index=7&tag=1 (53 No. 1 (2006) 270-278)].
