Question Need a good set of slides illustrating GEANT4

   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,
