I apologise if this is too basic a question for this forum - as a new user I'm not sure whether I should be using GEANT or EGS. Does anyone know of a documented comparison of their capabilities and if they can be used in a combined way? Which would be more appropriate for me? My research interest is simulating and modelling nucleonic densitometers which use Cs-137 and Co-60. The ability to easily make geometrical changes is important. Simple models for materials would suffice, and I'm only interested in gamma particles arriving at the detector. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
