The Geant4 geometry working group is responsible for the development and maintenance of the geometry modeller in the Geant4 toolkit. The development in the Geant4 geometry modeller spawns within the following areas: geometrical shapes, navigation algorithms, detector modelling techniques (volumes positioning), transportation in field and importance biasing techniques.

The Working Group is currently composed by:

  • Gabriele Cosmo, CERN (coordinator - management, navigation, volumes)
  • John Apostolakis, CERN (deputy-coordinator - field, navigation)
  • Pedro Arce Dubois, CIEMAT (navigation, volumes)
  • Makoto Asai, SLAC (biasing, volumes)
  • Andrei Gheata, CERN (navigation)
  • Mihaela Gheata, CERN/AIDA (solids)
  • Vladimir Grichine, Russian Academy of Sciences (solids)
  • Ivana Hrivnacova, IN2P3 Orsay (g3tog4, volumes)
  • Guilherme Lima, FNAL (navigation, solids)
  • Raman Sehgal, BARC (solids)
  • Evgueni Tcherniaev, Lebedev Institute (solids)
  • Sandro Christian Wenzel, CERN (navigation, solids)
