Work Plan for 2019

Version 1.0


  • New examples:
    • Biasing category: example illustrating the development(s) in generic biasing: "DXTRAN" MCNP-like option and implicit capture.
    • Medical/dna category:  "dnadamage" (not definitif) will show how to combine Geant4-DNA physics and Geant4-DNA current chemistry in the geometry of a DNA chromatin segment with molecular definition. Already being tested in git.
  • Existing examples improvements:
    • Biasing category: Resolve the overlap in biasing B02/B03 and GB03 examples which implement the same use case.
    • Electromagnetic & Hadronic categories: updating selected examples with usage of G4Accumulable.
    • errorpropagation category: Porting Geant4e to MT.
    • Medical category: Extend the DICOM reader with the RT Dose format.
    • EM category (and maybe others): Switch to new default random number generator MixMax. (?Done)
    • Medical/dna category:  try to include new cross-sections for gas materials in the already existing icsd example. 
  • Code review:
    • Review examples macros and tests: make sure that provided macros cover all commands implemented in example and the cdash test covers all important example use cases.
    • Update Wiki page with obsolete features.
  • Finish applying coding guidelines:
    • Review the status and update the table on the Wiki page.
    • Finish the examples not yet completed (dicomReader)
