Monte Carlo Simulation for Experimental Physics : A Practical Introduction to Concepts, Methods,
about this item
Taking a very practical, hand-on approach, this book introduces the use of Monte Carlo methods for solving practical problems in experimental physics. Topics covered include simulation methods, simulation domains, the experimental lifecycle, software tools for simulation, event generators, generalized and specialized codes for particle transport, modeling techniques, and physics processes. A CD-ROM and supporting website feature downloads, codes, hints, images, and links that enhance the book’s use in formal teaching environments and allow more experienced users access to further resources.
