Question Youtube video and basic example 

Forum: Documentation and Examples
Date: 12 Apr, 2016
From: Mark Crain <Mark Crain>

Hi Everyone,

I have used and manipulated several of the Geant4 examples and I have learned a lot. I am not a C++ expert but I have reviewed a bit about C++ and the ideas of "Class" and "Object". I am trying to understand how to build an actual example, different from those I can get from the training package. For my specific goal, I would like to have an electrostatic field, magnetic field and score the number secondary electrons generate in silicon by an e-beam hitting the silicon.

I can imagine that I should be able to use Geant4 as part of a process to simulate electron beam induced current (EBIC) in a semiconductor, or do something like simulate a vacuum tube or Geiger-Muller tube and then test it in the simulation.

I have seen how the examples provided call on a "Class" in the Geant4 library, but I don't always know what library to call and how to interface with it.

1) Is there documentation I am missing on how to build up an application from scratch, that might help me understand how to make my own? I have looked at the developers manual.

2) Any video instruction?

3) I use Microsoft visual studio (sorry). is there any suggestion on software that would help me keep better track of names between header and c++ files?

I've seen Geant4 do some amazing things. I appreciate the support.

Best Regards
