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 Registration

  • Getting a computing account

Apply for a computing account on the HEP Linux cluster by sending e-mail to HEPComputingSupport. 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 will receive an e-mail from the HEP computing support with your username and password. Now you can log in to the HEP cluster plus1 via ssh Your personal area on plus1 cluster will be at /home/username/.

  • Where to get help

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