News Design Interation of G4GeneralParticleSource

From: Fan Lei <Fan Lei>

The G4GeneralParticleSource is a sophisticated particle gun which can be use in place of the simpler G4ParticleGun in a G4 application. It was created initially for G4 space applications, but has since been expanded to meet some of the more specific requirements in accelerator experiment simulations. Some old documenets, e.g. URD,SSD and Users Manual, are available at

and there is also a more up-to-date version of the users manual available from the same site:

We are planning to carry out a design iteration of this large class, and are in the stage of collecting new requirements from the wider geant4 user community. I encourage everyone who has the need to use a complicated particle gun in an application to evaluate the current features available in G4GeneralParticleSource and send me any new requirements you can identify. Of course, comments and suggestions on how to improve the current code are also welcome.
