AB - Introduction -- Sampling techniques -- The Boltzmann equation -- Particle trajectories, tallies, variance reduction -- Transport of charged particles -- Microdosimetry. Elements of stochastic transport theory -- Grid based Boltzmann equation solvers -- Appendices. AB - This book is a guide to the use of Monte Carlo techniques in radiation transport. This topic is of great interest for medical physicists. Praised as a "gold standard" for accurate radiotherapy dose calculations, Monte Carlo has stimulated a high level of research activity that has produced thousands of papers within the past few years. The book is designed primarily to address the needs of an academically inclined medical physicist who wishes to learn the technique, as well as experienced users of standard Monte Carlo codes who wish to gain insight into the underlying mathematics of Monte Carlo algorithms. The book focuses on the fundamentals—giving full attention to and explaining the very basic concepts. It also includes advanced topics and covers recent advances such as transport of charged particles in magnetic fields and the grid-based solvers of the Boltzmann equation. ER -Download RIS file
