Work Plan for 2018

Version 1.1


  • New examples:
  • Biasing category: example illustrating the development(s) in generic biasing: “DXTRAN” MCNP-like option and implicit capture.
  • Existing examples improvements:
  • Biasing category: Resolve the overlap in biasing B02/B03 and GB03 examples which implement the same use case.
  • Electromagnetic & Hadronic categories: updating selected examples with usage of G4Accumulable.
  • errorpropagation category: Porting Geant4e to MT.
  • Medical category: Extend the DICOM reader with the RT Dose format.
  • EM category (and maybe others): Switch to new default random number generator MixMax.
  • Code review:
  • Review examples macros and tests: make sure that provided macros cover all commands implemented in example and the cdash test covers all important example use cases.
  • Update Wiki page with obsolete features.
  • Remove the obsolete features from the code using the agreed replacement: Review G4VIS_USE, G4UI_USE in main().
  • Finish applying coding guidelines:
  • Review the status and update the table on the Wiki page.
  • Finish the examples not yet completed (HepMCEx01,02, MCTruth, dicomReader)
