The ParticleTransportSim package simulates particle transport through
the detector geometry resulting in energy deposition hits. The simulation
is performed using ROOT's Virtual Monte Carlo package as the interface
to the concrete Monte Carlo simulation (Geant3,Geant4). The simulation
runs as the job module PTSimModule as part of a loon job.
The PTSimModule receives as input a SimSnarlRecord containing the
event initial state as retrieved from the record stdhep array.
The output of PTSimModule is energy deposition hits recorded as
DigiScintHits in the SimSnarlRecord digihit array, and secondary particles
generated during transport stored in the SimSnarlRecord stdhep array.
The secondary particles stored in the output stdhep array are subject
to a user configurable filter to reduce the number stored there to
a manageable number.
PTSimModule configuration options are described in the Offline User Manual.
The ParticleTransportSim package is further described in the
Monte Carlo chapter of the minossoft UserManual.
