SIMDET - Version 4 A Parametric Monte Carlo for a TESLA Detector

Schreiber, H.J.
Publication CERN: CERN (Organisation européenne pour la recherche nucléaire), 2002
Description 30 p.
Abstract A new release of the parametric detector Monte Carlo program erb+SIMDET+ (version 4.01) is now available. We describe the principles of operation and the usage of this program to simulate the response of a detector for the TESLA linear collider. The detector components are implemented according to the TESLA Technical Design Report. All detector component responses are treated in a realistic way using a parametrisation of results from the {em ab initio} Monte Carlo program erb+BRAHMS+. Pattern recognition is emulated using a complete cross reference between generated particles and detector response. Also, for charged particles, the covariance matrix and dE/dx information are made available. An idealised energy flow algorithm defines the output of the program, consisting of particles generically classified as electrons, photons, muons, charged and neutral hadrons as well as unresolved clusters. The program parameters adjustable by the user are described in detail. User hooks inside the program and the output data structure are documented.
