GEANT4 Paper is Hot, Hot, Hot

By Richard Mount

According to Elsevier Science Direct, the GEANT4 Collaboration paper from 2003 is number five in the list of hottest articles in Physics and Astronomy—and the only article in the top 25 that has anything to do with high energy physics. Areas of interest range from economics to engineering and from biological to physical sciences.

GEANT4 is a toolkit that simulates the passage of particles through matter. It is used in diverse applications, including simulation of high energy and nuclear physics experiments, radiation shielding, space radiation transport and effects, and medical physics. SLAC has been actively involved in its development and user support since the launch of the project.
