QGSP_INCLXX This is an experimental physics list that uses the Liege Intranuclear Cascade model (INCL++) for proton-, neutron- and pion-induced reactions below ~3 GeV, instead of BERT or BIC Building a physics list or choosing from already built physics lists is highly dependent on your use-case ! In either case, you need to be familiar with the major physics processes used to build them ! the process-model catalog is useful for this ! see Geant4 web page under User Support, item 10b
In the beginning, the default Geant4 Physics List was QGSP_BERT . Since the Geant4 release 10.0 the default Physics List becomes FTFP_BERT . The main advantage of working with the reference Physics List is in common method of instantiation of physics objects in Geant4 tests, in Geant4 examples, and in user applications Physics lists For any application in liquid water based on the Geant4-DNA extension, we recommend the implementation of a Geant4-DNA physics list using the G4EmDNAPhysics* Physics constructors, listed at the end of this page. The usage of such constructors is described in several Geant4-DNA extended examples (see examples section)

In Geant4, physics options are set in pieces of code called Physics Lists. A physics list specifies what particles and physics processes are defined, plus various cuts and options. By default, we set TOPAS physics to a list that has been shown to work well for proton therapy research at the Massachusetts General Hospital - The Geant4 Physics List interface - Modular and reference Physics Lists. PhysicsList Physics List is an object that is responsible to: - specify all the particles that will be used in the simulation application - together with the list of physics processes assigned to the Custom physics list supported by the SLAC Geant4 team.

Abstract A comparison of Geant4 physics lists is conducted in the calculation of the total absorbed dose, boron dose, and non-boron dose in phantom, and the total depth-dose, boron depth-dose, and non-boron depth-dose along the beam axis for neutrons in a range of 0.0253 eV to 10 MeV
Local EM physics builder are updated according to recent modifications in Geant4. Header files of CMS Physics Lists are renamed according to the CMS code conversion (.h instead of .hh). Modifications better correspond to the coming new Geant4 10.4 but are working with the current Geant4 10.2 GAMOS electromagnetic extended physics list. This physics list can be selected with the command /gamos/physicsList GmEMExtendedPhysics. It creates all GEANT4 particles, using the constructors G4BosonConstructor, G4LeptonConstructor, G4MesonConstructor, G4BaryonConstructor, G4IonConstructor, G4ShortLivedConstructor.For these particles the physics implemented is the following (see GEANT4 Physics. 3 ways to get a physics list 1) Manual: Specify all particles & processes that may occur in the simulation.

The Geant4 collaboration regularly performs validation and regression tests 4.1. New physics list mechanism ¶ WARNING : big change from Gate V7.0. Up to now, physic lists were set in GATE according to macro files containing list of command to add physical processes. From GATE Version 7.0, we highly recommend to switch to the physic list builder mechanism. The physic-list builders are provided by the Geant4. The simulation framework for MOLLER, called ``remoll'', is written in GEANT4 code. As a result, the simulation can utilize a number of GEANT4 coded physics lists that provide the simulation with a number of particle interaction constraints based off of different particle physics models We have studied each of the physics options that Geant4 offers to simulate an X-ray radiotherapy treatment with the aim of obtaining those that provide the best possible match to the experimental data of dose profiles and at the same time reduce the CPU time. The procedure has been repeated for two linac setups: an ELEKTA Versa HD with an Agility Multileaf Collimator using two nominal energies.

Geant4: A Simulation toolkit O. Stézowski and M. Pinto With many thanks to the Geant4 community !!! which provides a list of Geant4 classes and their major methods. Detailed discussions of the physics included in Geant4 are provided in the ``Physics Reference Manual''. 1.2. How to use this manual Part I: to understand the goal of the software design of Geant4, it is useful to begin by reading the User Require provide another user physics list for using EGS4 processes. To use EGS4 processes, any existing Geant4 geometry codes don't have to be modified. As for materials, users have to prepare EGS4 materials by themselves. Practically, users define PEGS materials in a PEGS input file and execute PEGS to generate a cross section file. In addition, . egs GEANT4 covers all relevant physics processes, electromagnetic, hadronic, decay, optical, for long and short lived particles, for energy range spanning from tens of eV to TeV scale. The transport of low energy neutrons down to thermal energies is also be handled We simulated electromagnetic and nuclear processes induced by clinical proton beams in order to select the physics setting for the 8.1 version of the Geant4 toolkit. A modular physics list was constructed allowing for alternative processes and models to be invoked in the simulations. We validated the Monte Carlo by means of measured depth-dose distributions in water for 86 MeV and 209 MeV.
Day2 - Exercise Cuts in EM physics processes. Geant4 and Calorimetry in HEP OBJECTIVE. Understand Geant4 cuts; Understand Physics List for electromagnetic processes; SETUP The setup consists of a single box containing 10 sandwich layers of 5mm Lead and 10mm Scintillator (z direction). The x and y dimensions are 50 cm. HO Geant4 physics is encoded into Physics Lists, which are built from a collection of physics constructors. Each physics constructor implements a specific subset of particles and physics processes. A set of EM physics constructors are available (Table 1) with the Geant4 release 9.3. Each con-structor includes a full list of particles and their E By comparing the simulation results between GEANT4 and MCNP5, it is shown that using the high-precision (HP) neutron physics list, GEANT4 produces the closest simulation results to MCNP5. However, differences could be observed when the neutron energy is lower than 1× 10-6 MeV with Geant4-DNA models. For instance, Livermore Physics List is referred to the Geant4 default Physics List. On the other hand the term Livermore Mixed Physics List means the combination of the Livermore Physics List for the nanoparticle and the Geant4-DNA Physics List for the surrounding water material.

Set up the physics list for Geant4, and pass it to Geant4's run manager. Without a physics list, Geant4 won't do anything. G4 comes with a number of pre-constructed lists, and for now I plan to use QGSP_BERT. It has the following properties: Standard EM physics processes. Quark-gluon string model for high energies (> 20GeV set of physics processes must be assembled by the user and assigned to the appropriate particle types. This is done in a C++ class called the physics list, and permits the user to choose the specific models and cross sections which implement a physical process. To support this choice, Geant4 provides at least two alternativ
