Geant4 (GEometry ANd Tracking) is a platform for the simulation of the passage of particles through matter. Application areas include high energy physics and nuclear experiments, medical, accelerator and space physics studies. The software is used by a number of research projects around the world.
US Geant4 Consortium Roadmap
"US Geant4 Consortium Roadmap"
Richard Mount et al., February 2009
The US-Geant4 Consortium Roadmap presents an overview of Geant4 and of the current
US role in the Geant4 Collaboration. The US-Geant4 Consortium is responsible for
the cross-cutting US effort contribution to the development and support of Geant4.
This effort is complementary to the work within experiments to implement and support
their Geant4-based simulations. The roadmap lays out the goals that the consortium
hopes to achieve over the period from now until 2013 and provides a context within
which specific funding proposals can be made to the appropriate US funding agencies.
