Run, Event and Detector Response WG
Work plan 2009
1] Parallel navigation
- 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.
