Generators in Gauss

Links to subpages: List of available generators in Gauss, Documentation for decay files

The first phase of the Gauss simulation software consists in generating pp collisions and the decay of unstable particles. The generator events are then given to the simulation phase where they are tracked inside the detector volumes.

Gauss is interfaced to various specialized packages available in the Physics community for this phase.

Interfacing a new external generator to Gauss usually means to write a new Production tool. The documentation on how the generator phase in Gauss is implemented and how to use it is avalaible here

The list of generators and some related documentation is given here:

Pythia 6



The decay library specialized for b-hadrons. Originally developed in BaBar is now maintained and further developed by the Warwick group in LHCb. For more information on EvtGen and its use in LHCb see the EvtGen page

Update of DECAY.DEC with PDG 2014 information is at DecayDecUpdate2014.





Pythia 8
