## Introduction

This is a tutorial about applications of GEANT4 to medical physics. The GEANT4 is installed on the HEP Linux cluster at UCL. You will need an account on that cluster to be able to use this software, run example tutorials and create your own applications.

## Accounts and Discussion forum

• Getting a computing account

Apply for a computing account on the HEP Linux cluster by sending e-mail to UCL HEP Computing Support. In your e-mail you have to state the reason for your application (e.g. medical physics student who will use GEANT4 on the HEP cluster).

You can write to the discussion forum by clicking the discussion tab at the top of the page.

## The basics of GEANT4

GEANT4 is a toolkit for simulating the passage of particles through matter. You can use GEANT4 by creating your own simulation applications using the available GEANT4 tools.

• Introduction to GEANT4 will help you understand the basics of GEANT4 and the necessary ingredients to write your own application.

## Data analysis software

These tutorials use ROOT to analyse data. Useful links:

Similarly, data can be analysed using MATLAB. This is a link to interactive introduction to MATLAB:
