The Monte Carlo simulation is a very important tool in particle physics specially to tune in the preciseness of the real time experiment. In particle physics, I had an opportunity to work on the data analysis of neutrino flux produced from the g4numi (the Neutrino beam from main injector, in FERMI lab). The simulation gives information like the production vertex of parent neutrinos, their velocity, momentum, the production vertex of neutrinos and other important information besides the regular neutrino flux obtained at different energy spectrum. I was mainly curious about the monte carlo itself. I tried to find a simple explanation on the design of the monte carlo like how do they determine the geometry of the beamline, the particle trajectory at various places (like the target where the proton hits, the decay area where mesons decay) and so on. How do they feed the probabilistic paths and particle interactions that take place in real life and how do they design or control the big events like hadron showers in special cases?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am not sure if it was a proper place to pose this question but any guidance will be highly appreciated.

Thank you.
