Work Plan for 2021

Version 1.0


  • New examples:
    • Biasing category: example illustrating the development(s) in generic biasing: "DXTRAN" MCNP-like option and implicit capture.
    • visualisation/movie: example illustrating how to create a movie
    • New hadronic example for testing decays of heavy particles
    • New extended example to demonstrate more of the scoring functionalities.
  • 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.
    • Medical/dna category: t ry to include new cross-sections for gas materials in the already existing icsd example
    • Basic/B4: remove visTutor 
  • Code review:
    • Continue with the macros and tests review: make sure that provided macros cover all commands implemented in example and the cdash test covers all important example use cases.
    • Migrate examples using local SteppingVerbose class to usage of new stepping verbose class, G4SteppingVerbose2 
  • Coding guidelines:
    • Review the status and update the table on the Wiki page.
    • Finish the examples not yet completed (dicomReader)
