If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

Dear GEANT4 experts,
I am joining Varian MS early next month. One of my tasks will be to model accurately the photons scattered in the Linac head and the contamination electrons. I plan to use Topas as it makes me feel much more comfortable than GEANT4. I only took a 4-day GEANT4 introductory course at Queen which was not professionally organised. The presented examples were about GEANT4 version 9… We were left with examples that would not run with GEANT4 version 10 already issued. So I gave up learning GEANT4 at that time. Nevertheless, I feel I should learn to use it because my Linac model will be validated against a model developed with GEANT4.
I managed to install GEANT4 version 10.02.01 on my Mac. Now I would need to go through some well organised slides illustrating the compulsory processes and the main features (detector, sources, tracking,events, composite geometry). I browsed GEANT4 web pages. I found some examples. But I feel I would benefit from those examples after reviewing GEANT4 basic processes. I wonder whether there is a website where i can find the slides usually presented in any GEANT4 decent course.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Best regards, Maura
