Air shower simulation using GEANT4 and commodity parallel computing
Originally posted at http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0006141v2
We present an evaluation of a simulated cosmic ray shower, based on GEANT4 and TOP-C, which tracks all the particles in the shower. TOP-C (Task Oriented Parallel C) provides a framework for parallel algorithm development which makes tractable the problem of following each particle. This method is compared with a simulation program which employs the Hillas thinning algorithm.
