Plan 2009

Run, Event and Detector Response WG

Work plan 2009

1] Parallel navigation

  • Finalize
  • Co-work with Geometry and Generic Processes WGs

2] Command-based scoring

  • Finalize box and cylindrical mesh types
  • Introduce spherical mesh

3] Prototype multi-core extension of Geant4

Gene Cooperman and his student, Xin Dong, developed a prototype thread-parallel version of Geant4 (event-level parallelism) to take advantage of multi-core processors.

In this prototype all global data is made thread-local (thread-private). Future work will concentrate on enhancing the spatial locality of the code to better use the limited cache.
