Duke University Department of Physics Physics 392 Fall Term 2011 HOMEWORK 2 Available: October 21 Problems may be completed using any appropriate programming language or software tool. You must include your source code with your solu- tions. Problem 1: Write a simple “event generator” to generate particles isotropic in direc- tion and uniform in position over a sphere. Make plots demonstrating that your sample is indeed isotropic and uniform. (The output of this program should be a list of 4-momentum vectors for 1000 particles). Problem 2: Estimate ( not using detector simulation) the range in air, water and lead of: a. 10 GeV muons b. 100 MeV electrons c. 10 MeV protons You may use any web or other resources, but reference any information you ﬁnd.

Unformatted text preview: Problem 3: Go through the Geant4 N01 and N02 code to familiarize yourself with the diﬀerent pieces of the code. Answer the following based on your reading of the code for the N02 example: a. Draw a diagram indicating the structure of geometry ( i.e. indicate the network of mother and daughter volumes starting from the world volume– draw an abstract diagram of relationships, not the physical geometry). b. List the physics processes used. c. Describe how the particles are generated. d. Run the program and include the visualization of 10 events with and without a magnetic ﬁeld. Problem 4: Repeat problem 2a, but use a simple Geant4 detector simulation. (Modify one of the Geant4 examples)....
