MCFast: A fast simulation package for detector design studies

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Simulation Group at Fermilab has developed a fast simulation package for detector design studies. The goal of this package, called MCFast, is to provide a fast and flexible framework for the comparison of detector geometries and, in particular, to compare experiments designed to study the production and decay of B hadrons in a collider environment. The code is written primarily in Fortran and C and the fast tracking is based on the Kalman filter technique. A 3-D Graphics package has been developed to display the detector geometry, tracks and calorimeter hits. Recent updates to the MCFast package include improvements ... continued below
