Abstract:

An algorithm for generating Generalized Boltzmann Fokker-Plank GBFP discrete cross-section data and the implementation of the discrete model in Geant4 are described. Comparisons of angular distributions generated by the analog and discrete models are presented. Moreover, a case is made for implementation of the GBFP hybrid model to mitigate the discrete artifacts highlighted in the aforementioned comparison. Comparisons of dose profiles generated by the analog and discrete models are presented.
