The Geant4 Advanced Examples Working Group

Welcome to the official web site of the Geant4 collaboration Advanced Examples working group.


The Advanced examples illustrate realistic applications of Geant4 in typical experimental environments. They are developed in collaboration with user groups expert in the corresponding experimental domain. The examples code can be downloaded together with the Geant4 Toolkit in the directory geant4/examples/advanced

Working plans

Working Plan for 2019

  • Maintenance and bug fixes (1,2)
  • Code review (e.g. implementation of the extended examples coding guidelines) in selected examples (1,2)
  • Developments of alternative approaches for LET calculation in hadrontherapy (1, 2) [*]
  • Assessment of physics of advanced examples and analysis of software quality metrics of advanced examples (1, 2)
  • Migration of the air_shower advanced example to MT (1,2)
  • Release of a new example for nanomedicine (gold nanoparticles in X-ray radiotherapy) (2)[*]

[*] Optional, and subject to the availability of manpower
