Ok, Thank you for letting me know. So some follow questions :

http://geant4.web.cern.ch/geant4/G4UsersDocuments/UsersGuides/PhysicsReferenceManual/html/PhysicsReferenceManual.html

I had presumed that this was the geant4 manual in question you were referring to, is that correct ?

And also, has there been tests to determine how accurately geant4 measures the rate of scattering of cold and ultracold neutrons in Aluminum or indeed in any kind of metal that is in the geant4 database ? I am looking to launch a set of 1000 neutrons at the center of the face of one of the Aluminum blocks , starting from just outside the Aluminum block. The block is one cubic meter. So I was wondering if there is any paper or presentation or source of info that has experiments or validity tests so I can see how accurately the High Precision Neutron Model measures the elastic scattering, inelastic scattering, neutron capture and other processes that occur when cold neutrons, around 0 to 20 or so eV, in this case 2 meV, are launched into a metal target, with the metal taken to be one in the geant4 HP database like Aluminum.
