Physics lists - Use cases

This page is under construction!

The 'old' physics web pages are still available here.

If you have experience and/or comparisions to data in one of the topics below, or a new topic, please contact us via the physics list forum on Geant4 hypernews

High energy physics calorimetry

Recommended: FTFP_BERT, QGSP_BERT

Studies of testbeam data currently show that a string model coupled to a cascade model is needed for a good description of hadronic showers; the FTFP_BERT and QGSP_BERT physics lists improve agreement with LHC testbeam data for the longitudinal shape, the lateral shape and for resolution. These lists are currently chosen by the LHC experiments ATLAS and CMS as default physics lists.

High energy physics tracker

Recommended: FTFP_BERT, QGSP_BERT, QGSP_BIC

'typical' HEP collider detector

Recommended: FTFP_BERT

LHC neutron fluxes

The Simulation of neutron fluxes needs, in addition to the simulation of hadronic showers, a transport for low energy neutron down to thermal energies. Recommended: QGSP_BERT_HP, QGSP_BIC_HP
