Geometry and Transport

Purpose

The Geant4 geometry working group is responsible for the development and maintenance of the geometry modeller in the Geant4 toolkit. The development in the Geant4 geometry modeller spawns within the following areas: geometrical shapes, navigation algorithms, detector modelling techniques (volumes positioning), transportation in field and importance biasing techniques.
