Novice & Extended Examples

The mandate of Geant4 Novice & Extended working group is the following:

  1. Coordinate the design, implementation and maintenance efforts of N&E examples;
  2. Ensure the Geant4 toolkit functionalities, options and controls are well mapped into the examples;
  3. Maintain scenarios to organize the structure of the N&E examples;
  4. Ensure the code quality of the examples, provide coding guidelines to developers, and organize the code review;
  5. Ensure cross-references between examples;
  6. Communicate with documentation WG coordinator to ensure N&E examples and documentation cross-referenced.
