|Description: Suite of programs for the simulation of the passage of particles through matter|
|SHARCNET Package information: see GEANT4 software page in web portal|
|Full list of SHARCNET supported software|
Geant4 is a toolkit for the simulation of the passage of particles through matter. Its areas of application include high energy, nuclear and accelerator physics, as well as studies in medical and space science.
Usage on graham and cedar
Geant4 is installed as a module on cedar and graham.
To see which versions are available, execute:
module avail geant4
To then use a particular version, execute for example:
module load geant4/10.02.p03
After you load the module, you can see where the software is installed by executing:
To see the useful examples included with the version we have loaded, execute:
Usage on older SHARCNET systems
SHARCNET provides a build of geant4 on sharcnet CentOS clusters .
Geant4 comes with many examples useful for testing purposes:
[roberpj@vdi-centos6:/opt/sharcnet/geant4/10.02.02/share/Geant4-10.2.2/examples/extended/analysis] ls AnaEx01 AnaEx02 AnaEx03 B1Con CMakeLists.txt History README shared
Consider the AnaEx01 example as follows:
mkdir -p ~/samples/geant4/test-100202 cd ~/samples/geant4/test-100202 module unload intel module load ldwrapper gcc/4.9.3 geant4/10.02.02 cp -r /opt/sharcnet/geant4/10.02.02/share/Geant4-10.2.2/examples/extended/analysis/AnaEx01 . source geant4make.sh cd AnaEx01 gmake clean_setup gmake setup gmake
[roberpj@vdi-centos6:~/samples/geant4/test-100202/AnaEx01] which AnaEx01 ~/geant4_workdir/bin/Linux-g++/AnaEx01
To run the binary do:
[roberpj@vdi-centos6:~/samples/geant4/test-100202/AnaEx01] AnaEx01 Idle> help Command directory path : / Sub-directories : 1) /control/ UI control commands. 2) /units/ Available units. 3) /process/ Process Table control commands. 4) /analysis/ ...Title not available... 5) /particle/ Particle control commands. 6) /geometry/ Geometry control commands. 7) /tracking/ TrackingManager and SteppingManager control commands. 8) /event/ EventManager control commands. 9) /cuts/ Commands for G4VUserPhysicsList. 10) /run/ Run control commands. 11) /random/ Random number status control commands. 12) /material/ Commands for materials 13) /N03/ UI commands of this example 14) /physics_lists/ commands related to the physics simulation engine. 15) /gun/ Particle Gun control commands. 16) /heptst/ Controls for the hadronic energy/momentum test 17) /physics_engine/ ...Title not available... 18) /vis/ Visualization commands. Commands : Type the number ( 0:end, -n:n level back ) :
Once the binary runs interactively as desired submit it to the serial queue:
sqsub -q serial -r 5m -o file.%J ~/geant4_workdir/bin/Linux-g++/AnaEx01
